Fossil Flats

Route Description


TRAIL #10: Fossil Flats offers a great taste of Ozark Mountain biking located conveniently at Devil's Den State Park. Home to the oldest mountain bike festival in the state, the trail includes both machine- and hand-built trail. Starting in the tent area of the campground and going clockwise, the trail winds through hardwood forests and karst topography up the Lee Creek Valley before eventually crossing the creek and heading up Racers Hill. A fast-flowing downhill brings riders to narrow singletrack hovering above the creek.  Be ready for the “gravity cavity” for a quick, heart-pounding experience before another creek crossing back into the campground to finish the five-mile loop.
 
The park offers camping, cabins, miles of hiking and mountain bike trails, a seasonal pool and restaurant, all in a beautiful mountain setting.
