Introduction of Ames Nowell State Park

Ames Nowell is a year-round day use area with recreational opportunities centred on Cleveland Pond, which is popular with boaters and fishermen. A picnic area, a ball field, and several miles of trails run along the pond’s edge and through the surrounding woods.

Ames Nowell is the Shangri-La of mountain bikers. Riders frequently get turned around and/or don’t know where to ride due to the predominantly technical terrain and hundreds of trails. Hopefully, Trailforks will address this issue and attract more riders to the park. There are a few old ATV and doubletracks on the perimeter, but the interior is full of challenging singletrack. Riding the eastern Cleveland Pond Trail is a good way to see if the park’s trails are for you.Although this would be considered a black trail in many parks, it is only a blue in Ames. Take the doubletrack north from the parking lot to the lone bench by the Pond, then return along the Pond Trail’s edge. If you like this style of riding, explore the rest of the park and test your skills on the blue and black trails.
