Description

Ewing is flowy, Nothing too technical, but plenty of climbing and descending.

The Central Iowa Trail Association (CITA) builds and maintains sustainable, shared "singletrack" dirt trails for mountain biking, running, hiking, and exploring. There are over 4.7 miles of dirt nature trails in Ewing Park thanks to the volunteerism of CITA and thier partners.
