1:30 Activity:


Bridge Trail - The Bridge Trail is approximately one-mile in length and connects to Soldiers Trail in the southwest portion of the park. This is a nature trail with two rock benches for enjoying mountain views.  After the hike we will walk over to the Bike Park for a tour.  The Bridge Trail is a moderately difficult trail.  Bring water, hat, sunscreen and good walking shoes.  

Bike Skills Course:

Fort Tuthill Bike Park is set amid the pine trees at Fort Tuthill County Park.  The Bike Park opened December 11, 2014, with flow trails (beginner, intermediate and advanced), a tot track, and a return trail available for riders. Fort Tuthill Bike Park was one of six parks across the country to be featured on National Recreation and Park Association's crowdfunding site, Fund Your Park, in December 2014.

Those who are skilled mountain bikers may be interested in staying a little longer to ride the Soldiers Trail, an approximate 5.1 mile loop around the perimeter of the park. This is an easy trail, with several challenging hills. The trail was named Soldiers Trail in honor of those who trained at the Fort when it was a National Guard Training facility prior to World War II. To reach the trail from the trailhead, go north on the Flagstaff Urban Trail for a half-mile to the trail junction.  

Bring bike, biking safety gear, water and sunscreen. 

Lunch will be $10 and will include sandwich, pow tie pasta, cookie and a drink.
