Elm Creek Fat Tire Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"New in 2011, Three Rivers Park District and MORC introduced 13 miles of sublime singletrack at Elm Creek, twisting around the northeast corner of the park through dense hardwood forest and open prairie, with a perfectly blended mix of beginner to expert terrain on fast-flowing path with only rare unintended obstacles. Decadent paved trails through the rest of the wildlife-packed park add bonus points."

"Three Rivers Park District and MORC boast 13 miles of sublime singletrack at Elm Creek Park Reserve, twisting around the northeast corner of the park through dense hardwood forest and open prairie, with a perfectly blended mix of beginner to expert terrain on a fast- flowing path with only rare unintended obstacles. Decadent paved trails through the rest of the wildlife-packed park add bonus points. I double- dipped on my Elm Creek day and rode both the paved and dirt trails, so this route starts from the dog park trailhead. Follow the road north to the junction with the paved trail and hop on the singletrack, cruising through an open, meadowy landscape to a short climb through a chunk of woods, then squiggle around through the open again to meet the access to Grizzland, the expert section dotted with technical features like log piles and rock gardens, and boasting the most elevation gain on the trail."
