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.

A full lap at Banner is 5.4 miles and includes Coal Miner’s Daughter, New Ed Beach, Missing Link, Corner Pocket, the park road, Riverside, the park road, and Extra Credit. (view Strava segment)
