Mankato’s newest mountain bike trail is located at the Kiwanis Recreation Area just north of the Highway 169 and Highway 14 intersection. This trail is still under construction and will be finished for the most part by the end of summer 2014. There are two different loops at Kiwanis. The "Short Loop" shown in green is a 1 mile trail rated as beginner. The "Long Loop" is a 4 mile trail that is rated intermediate. There will eventually be more features put into the long loop for the more advanced riders. Total mileage riding both loops is about 5 miles.
Parking is at the lower gravel lot - simply drive into the Kiwanis Rec Area and onto the short gravel road, the parking lot will be on your right.
