Two Rivers Bike Park
Two Rivers Bike Park is a purpose-built, multi-use trail system, boasting over 14 miles of professionally built and maintained singletrack twisting through pristine Ozarks terrain for mountain bikers, runners, and hikers to enjoy year round, free of charge. The nearly 400-acre park sits just off the scenic Finley and James River confluence.
Its professionally designed trails feature mostly natural surfaces and offer the thrills of climbing, drop sections, rock features, built-in wall rides, wooden ladders and other optional stunts.
Celebrate gardening, nature and butterflies. Visit the Roston Native Butterfly House and Caterpillar Petting Zoo. Enter the pollinator costume contest, enjoy magic shows, visit vendors, and more. Presented by Friends of the Garden. Children may pick up a packet of take-home crafts, presented by Young Sprouts in the Garden. Free admission to Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden.
