Mountain biking in the steep hills of Southern Humboldt can be a challenge. The Community Park provides some rare, gentle mileage that is perfect for initiating beginners into the sport. The proximity to town makes it a convenient spot for a spontaneous ride or regular training; advanced riders may take a few laps and include side trails for more challenge.
The Park offers 3.5 miles of such easy trails. Because these trails are also populated with hikers, joggers and dog walkers, it’s important to practice trail etiquette and “share the road.”
The South Fork High School Mountain Bike team meets there regularly to stay in race shape. The Park has been the site of successful racing events suitable for all ages and skill levels.
