Course Description

Back in the 1930s, the state park was home to one of Iowa’s largest strip mines. Over the past five-plus years, the Central Iowa Trail Association in cooperation with the Iowa DNR has transformed the abandoned strip mine into over five miles of narrow tread, tight and twisty single track.

Summerset Course MapFull lap at Banner is 5.25–5.5 miles and includes Coal Miner’s Daughter (with black sections), New Ed Beach, Missing Link, Corner Pocket (black), park road, Riverside*, park road, and Extra Credit** (black). There is a Strava segment of the course.

* Part of Riverside has been rerouted and shortened this year due to flooding.

** Extra Credit has a new entrance and new trail added since this segment was created.
