This trail is a great single track trail that is a out and back currently however it is being worked on daily and it get longer everytime I ride it. The out is a begins with a pretty steep climb the level off when you get near the top with some great switchbacks and nice bermed turns. With the climb being pretty steep on the way out it should go without saying that the trip back down is very fast and fun. Some areas can be a bit technical but the trail is well groomed. Great trail!

Review: Fun ride, nice beginning climb and a fun loop at the top. Rode the loop at the top several times, each one faster than the last as I became more familiar with the twists, turns and obstacles. Very well groomed and maintained except for a few downed trees, very fresh, still green so no fault of the local trail crew. Downhills were a blast as well, nice banked turns, great rock platforms through water runoffs which made these fun to cross. Only drawback to this system is for an outsider getting there, GPS had trouble finding it. Once there the locals were very helpful. Had fun and will definitely add this to my list of trails to return to. Looking forward to my next trip to the Cincy area now!

Review: Best mountain bike trails around Cincinnati. You'll find a wide array of difficulty, fast trails, great jumps, and some technical sections. Well maintained and extremely fun

Review: This is a great trail system. My first time being there today. I didn't have time for some of the larger loops, but rode Incinerator, Back Bowl, Pig's Tail, and Trail Devou-tion. I was really blown away by the time and effort put into all the banked turns and rock placements. There are some long, steep climbs, and some longer, awesome downhills. Trail Devou-tion is downhill only, and man is it fast. Very impressed with the system, and the train tracks and old incinerator at the trailhead add to the experience. I haven't been to Idlewild trails in Burlington in about a year, but given a choice between the two, I think Devou has a better ride throughout the park.

Review: Cool system. Starts by an old incinerator followed by a steady climb, watch out for people racing down the hill. They're always adding stuff. There's more trails across the street too.

Review: Thus trail is great!! I had a lot of fun. I was a bit confused on where to park and where to put in at but I figured it out. Just a heads up, you start out by an old decommisioned incenerary and its mostly up hill from there for about 1.1 miles until you get to the top of the mountain. From there you can choose where to go and its fast and smooth from there on. The trail gives you options to veere off onto to expert sections which are a blast and well maintained. Overall it is a great course.

Review: Fun ride, just not enough of it. I logged 6 miles but that was doing the loop twice. The "expert downhill" was fun...except for the part where the 50ft free fall ended with a hairpin turn into a rock garden. Overall- fun stuff, just add about 10-15 miles and you'll have a killer trail.

Review: rode trail on 10/23/11. after hearing all the hype could'nt wait to get down and ride, and was.................... not impressed at all!!! the ten minute climb to the top was cool though. i think getting through the gate at tressel was the most techinal feature. expert downhill was not double black diamond, maybe single black diamond at best. im sorry but i just did'nt see what all the hype was about. england idlewild down the road is more flowing and techinal

Review: Great job trail crew...uphill traverse to start is exactly the way I like to start to journey....new double diamond downhill section is exciting, but I still prefer the remaining hilltop section so I can enjoy the rather lengthy downhill...word is getting out so get here soon....excellently maintained!
