Mount Kato offers a taste of higher country here in our mountain-deficient state. Superb singletrack riding awaits at this young mountain bike park. Opened for fat tires in 1996, Mt. Kato offers nearly 5 miles of fun on its main loop alone, with several offshoot trails for a potential 8 miles of riding and many more if you stay up and explore different loops. Eighty percent of the mileage is on hard-packed wooded singletrack—a dream come true. Riders of all abilities can enjoy these trails, but the terrain of the place requires some extra huffing. Brand new riders might want to get some miles in before tackling Kato. Bikes and helmets are both available for rent if you lack equipment. Tread: Hard-packed singletrack with some grassy doubletrack.
