Boardwalk on the Tarmac trail.
The Scott County Park trail system offers the largest amount of singletrack at one location in the QC area. A full loop will be near 11 miles in total length. The trails offer a variety of difficulty level from beginner to advanced and explore the diverse terrain and natural areas of the park. Trail character varies from open and flowy to extremely tight and twisty (bring the 26er) with some short climbs and descents thrown into the mix. Be sure to try the many, optional, technical features along the way to add an extra challenge.
- Park View (Beginner 3.0 mi)
- Long Grove (Beginner 1.76 mi)
- ScoCoPa (Beginner 1.46 mi)

Trails are open from sunrise to sunset. Night riding is not allowed.
The dirt trails at the park are closed to all users when wet and muddy to prevent damage. Trails also close during winter and spring freeze thaw cycles when the soil is extremely sensitive to rutting and soil displacement. Check the trail status before you head out to the park in the upper left corner of this page.
