    Regretting that we didn't have mountain bikes to enjoy this thrill filled park. We still took some time to get under that great tree canopy. If you have your bike and the energy for the ride, you've got to check this bike park out.

    A winding of trails i wasn't aware of in Sioux Falls! Bike, trail run or walk these trails and enjoy the many many trees and thrilling obstacles, bends and hills. I walk, run and ruck these trails. We saw lots of squirrels, an ancient cottonwood and unique tree frames throughout. The gem of this place, is location, and the chance of various wildlife as you work the trails.

    Awesome place!! If you arent an expert who has ridden mountain biking trails in Colorado and feels the need to compare the two... this place is for you! Its a pretty rad bike riding trail that will give you an adrenaline rush!

    This hidden little bundle of excitement is an awesome place to stroll around with someone you're trying to impress OR shred the skin off your shins on the bmx trails! Either way, if youre anything like me, wear a helmet for both occasions. This is also an awesome place to not be bothered by any pesky people.

    Love this park. Great for day hiking in town but even better for a place that allows mountain biking on a single track. They offer biking for any level.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this park. It was a great shorter hike with a few different trails to choose from. I went in the middle of the day and only ran into 2-3 people who happened to be on bikes. The only downside is you can hear all the traffic 229 so you know you're still in the city.

    I arrived before the sun was coming up and so it was very peaceful. I do recommend enjoying the scenery as the sun is coming out as this park is situated at a higher elevation making everything else seem void while attuned to the universe. :)

    A truly hidden jem for trail runners, hikers, and mountain bikers. Quiet and secluded in the middle of the city. Falls Area Single Track does an incredible job of maintaining this awesome resource.

  • 4/5 Joe K. 5 years ago on Google
    Fun trails through the woods. Seemingly insurmountable amount of litter to pick up.

  • 5/5 kris h. 5 years ago on Google
    Fantastic trails

  • 5/5 Nick H. 5 years ago on Google

  • 5/5 James W. 5 years ago on Google
    Best single track in Sioux falls.

  • 4/5 Darren N. 4 years ago on Google
    Good hike

  • 5/5 Matthew W. 1 year ago on Google
    Great trails, with lots of various paths that range from easy to more arduous. Nice overlook knoll as well. Only downside is that people tend not to clean up after themselves, as well as the water run off stinks. That part only affects the beginning portion of one of the trails. Overall, a great place to spend a few hours walking or cycling through. Also a great place for some geocaching!

  • 5/5 marg s. 3 years ago on Google
    Nice little out of the way park

  • 5/5 Shawn K. 1 year ago on Google
    Nice area, just very cold out so didn’t get to stay long.

  • 5/5 Jared 1 year ago on Google
    I use to go to Leaders Park often as a kid. Sledding is fun and now mountain biking!

  • 5/5 Christopher C. 1 year ago on Google
    Nice single-track bike park. Small but still a nice riding park.

  • 5/5 Sami F. 4 years ago on Google
    Very beautiful park. Lots of trails to follow. Great for biking or walking

  • 4/5 Jeff L. 8 months ago on Google
    This is a great place for a few quick laps. The climbs are technical, with a few steep switchbacks. My gravel bike was great for climbing, but suspension would speed up the descents. As a visitor to SF, I recommend this hidden gem. Trails were dry and mostly trimmed back.

  • 5/5 Chris W. 3 years ago on Google
    Great trails would come back

  • 4/5 Jason C. 4 years ago on Google
    Not sure where you can sled like photo at leaders, unless you want to slide into heavy woods or oncoming interstate traffic. However, it is a great place for a garden!

  • 4/5 Chris H. 3 years ago on Google
    Leaders Park was a fun place to take kids for a winter hike. I think we will be going back for hikes in winter and in summer. There we lots of trails and fun bridges over the creek that runs through the park. Also it looks like it would be a good sledding spot. The one downside was figuring out how to get into the park. We ended up finding a little dead end road on the south end of the park to get into the park. If there is an official entrance I didn't see it. A good experience over all.

  • 5/5 Nathan R. 3 years ago on Google
    The single track trails are very fun.

  • 4/5 Callie A. 3 years ago on Google
    A convenient place within the city to get some single track trails in. Well-constructed various Loop options make for an easy 30 minutes to an hour of mountain biking or running. Parking is just along the street and the trail start just east of the community garden.

  • 5/5 Angel K. 4 years ago on Google
    Great park

  • 4/5 Rudy H. 4 years ago on Google
    More challenging than the Tut Hill single track. I like the 1 way in and 1 way out system.

    One of my favorite places to hike! Lots of deer!
