Fun trail in north Moorhead. Well maintained on the banks of the Red River. Careful of the skinny bridge Five miles in length. Trail is not overly technical but is a fun trail to ride through what is mostly a wooded area. This park is groomed in the winter for Fat Biking (tire sizes of 3.8" or bigger).

All of the FM area trails are on soil that can be variable with weather. Rain turns it into a very slippery and sticky substance that is nearly impossible to ride, so if it's rained in the last 24 hours, be aware that you might have a change of plans for the day. Please respect the trails and if you are displacing the soil or it's sticking to you tires (you'll know real fast), please give it time to dry. Enjoy.
