This trail system contains mountain bike trails, which can become soft and are easily damaged after 0.75 or more inches of rain or long stretches of wet weather. Please consult QC Friends of Off-Road Cycling (FORC), http://www.qcforc.org, to make sure trails are open before heading out.

Turn Left on Veterans Way/Scott Park Road and go 0.25 miles, then turn right on 270th Street and go 0.9 miles. Turn left into Park Entrance - there is no entrance fee.

Access to the Equestrian area is one half mile east of the park entrance on 270th Street. A Scott County Recycling Station is located in the equestrian area parking lot.
In addition to great hiking and equestrian trails, the Scott County Park trail system offers the largest amount of singletrack biking at one location in the Quad Cities area. A full loop will be near 11 miles in total length. The trails offer a variety of difficulty level from beginner to advanced and explore the diverse terrain and natural areas of the park. Trail character varies from open and flowy to extremely tight and twisty (bring the 26er) with some short climbs and descents thrown into the mix. Be sure to try the many, optional, technical features along the way to add an extra challenge.
Scott County Park also has twelve picnic areas and shelters with tables, grills and/or fireplaces accessible. It offers a baseball field, playground equipment, a radio-controlled airplane site, nature trails, an equestrian area and five unique camping areas. There are modern restrooms and showers throughout the park. An Olympic size heated swimming pool has lifeguards and offers summer swimming lessons. Winter activities include sledding, cross-country skiing, and tobogganing.
