Fun loop on the banks of the Red River. FM Trailbuilders have been working hard to make this an adventure you can find right in town. Easy access at Gooseberry parking or across the river on the ND side from Lindenwood Park. The trail weaves around the river banks on the edges of Gooseberry Park. It is an easy to intermediate trail with a few features and structures built into the terrain. It can be challenging to navigate in some spots so ask a local if you need clarification. The trail can be pretty busy at times with frequent hikers and dog walkers, but this is easy access in town for a spin. Horn Trail is located just to the south of Gooseberry and easily accessible via bike for an additional 1-2 miles. (Please do not go through the backyard of the private property on the far south end to access Horn. Go up to the street and come back down the dike.)

Red River Valley soil is very clay based and the trail can become impossible to use when wet or muddy. Please don't ride when wet. Please pay attention to weather and check Trailforks for updates.

Access Info

The trail has three easy entry points: the north side of the Gooseberry Park access road opposite the restroom parking lot, the south side of the Lindenwood Park walking bridge access path, and the south-most point off Rivershore Dr.

      Trials are officially open for dirt riding! Some soft and loose areas that will need some traffic to firm up. As always, please let the trail...

      Mostly good condition for fat biking but in some areas where the river flooded there is jagged broken-through ice that you'll need to be wary of.
