Summerset State Park - TRAIL

Summerset State Park - Trail, Indianola, Iowa

This place is an old strip mine so very nice fun factor. Consists of three main trails (Coal Miner's Daughter, Corner Pocket and Riverside) There are two that basically connect to Coal Miner which are New Ed Beach and another that I cannot remember the name of it. Trail is all singletrack and has a lot of short steep ups and steep downs so trail can really only be ridden in one direction. Nice wood work both on land and over water.

When you park at the trail head you will see a sign across the road for the Coal Miner's Daughter trail. When you ride this take the black diamond routes since those are very fun. From here you ride New Ed Beach and that other trail which was called Mine then dump out to the road and off to the left is Corner Pocket. This was very fun and consisted of a bunch switchback type corners and a nice steep downnhill at the end but this one is very short. After you finish this one turn left on the pavement and you will see the last trail Riverside off to the left this is the easiest and flatest trail here but still fun and flowy.

The picture is not of the trail head but of my favorite part of the trail. You will ride on this stuff quite a bit.

6 miles of trail but will give one heck of a work out. These trails are tight, and well put together. There is also great scenery all around you as the trails were created around some small lakes.
