Type: Mountain Bike

Length: 2 miles

Surface: Dirt

A short, fun trail in beautiful eastside Des Moines' Grandview park.


Above Average

Grade - Rolling Mild Hills



Grandview Park trail loops around the park. It mostly stays in the trees and follows the contours of the park's several ridges. It flows nicely in the trees offering some short little climbs as well as spots to get some speed and enjoy. Even with its short distance you can enjoy some variety by riding it in either direction.  It was designed and built by the same team that built Center Trails and has features consistent with the new Roller Coaster, Poolside, and Hillside trails in terms of flow and use of topography.

There are several points at which the trail comes close to the disc golf baskets. Be aware and courteous to other users of the park.
