The mountain bike trails here opened on June 20, 2014. As of February 1, 2017, Jay B Starkey Park has 19 miles of mountain bike single-track. There are several places along the trail where taking the pavement back allows for shorter loops. Please review the trail map for options in the length of your route. We are in the process of planning additional trail.

This trail has been built and groomed by public volunteers and SWAMP Club members.

Please note: We can use your help building, maintaining and repairing the trails. Trail work is a learning experience and more fun than you expect. To find out how you can help, send e-mail to Trails at SWAMPClub dot org.
