Grand opening planned for mountain bike trails at Versailles State Park

April 13, 2006

Versailles State Park, in partnership with Hoosier Mountain Bike Association (HMBA), will host a grand opening for the newly constructed mountain bike trails on Sat., April 22 at 10 a.m. E.D.T.

The event is open to the public and will take place near the swimming pool parking lot. Participants are invited to bring their bikes for a ride if weather and trail conditions permit.

Approximately 10 miles of trails will be available for mountain bikers at Versailles. Funding for trail construction was provided by the DNR’s Division of State Parks and Reservoirs and by HMBA. More than 75 volunteers contributed more than 2,000 hours to construct the trails. HMBA will monitor and maintain the mountain bike trails.

Mountain bike trails, varying in length from 5 miles to 15 miles, are currently available at several DNR properties, including Brown County State Park, Roush Lake, Clark State Forest/Deam Lake, Ferdinand State Forest, Jackson-Washington State Forest/Starve Hollow Beach SRA, Martin State Forest and Owen-Putnam State Forest.

For more information about the mountain bike trails at Versailles State Park, call the park office at 812-689-6424.
