Description

Blue Mound State Park has over 13 miles of singletrack. The main loop around the mound is about 7 miles long and has lots of exposed rocks and roots. The expert section, affectionately known as Holy Schist has challenging rock features and climbs.

Across Mounds Road in the Pleasure Valley area of the park is the 4-mile Over Lode Trail. It's more friendly to hard tail bike riders because it has fewer rocks and roots, but provides plenty of challenge in the form of big climbs and fast, flowy descents.

The newest addition to the trails is the Pokerville Trail. Located on the south side of the mound below the campground, Pokerville occupies some difficult, rocky terrain, but routes riders across the slope more than up and down unlike most of the trails at Blue Mound. It's under construction and the current out-and-back ride will eventually result in a 4-mile loop.
