Carver Lake Bike Park

The bike park playground is located at Carver Lake Park in the open field area just off the main park entrance road. The bike park playground has four designated areas to provide a full progression of riding and learning including a:

  • Bicycle playground
  • Tot track
  • Pump track
  • Advanced skills loop with technical trail features

The advanced trail loop includes dirt rollers, wooden berms, wooden technical trail features, and rock gardens.

The bike park playground will be maintained by volunteers from the Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists organization, who have also maintained the off-road cycling trail in Carver Lake Park since it opened in 2011. Parking is available near the bike park playground and also in the main parking lot.

Look Before You Ride: Rider Safety Rules

  • It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself before attempting any of the elements of this bike park playground. Four designated areas provide a full progression of riding and learning: bicycle playground (balance bikes), tot track, pump track, and an advanced skills loop.
  • The advanced trail loop has technical trail features that include dirt rollers, wooden berms, wooden technical trail features, and rock gardens. Riders should always look before they ride and wear protective equipment.
  • The features vary in difficulty and it is important that riders use caution and ride within their ability.
  • Only one person may use a feature at a time and the trail loops are one direction riding counter-clockwise.
  • You control the degree of risk you will encounter in using these features. Your speed and bike control will directly affect your ability to ride the features safely. Do not attempt to ride these features unless you have sufficient ability and experience to do so safely.
  • Ride smaller features to start and work your way up to larger features. The features within this park will allow you to transfer newly developed skills to the off-road cycling trail system.
  • Take turns and have fun!
