Review: These trails are compact and have everything from beginner to advanced. Whether your a local or driving through you will not be sorry for trying these trails. The park includes a really nice downhill section, a massive skills section, big pump track, several creek crossings and very nice buildings and restrooms. It also has a huge skate park and disc golf if your into those.

Review: The trials at falling creek are good but their aren't much of them and they are very compact. But my favorite park is their bike park and the downhill trails, they are like nothing around.

Review: Falling creek is a great trail and well maintained. Very fast corners and great jumps all over the path. Anyone going though BedFord must stop and ride this trail.

Review: Falling Creek just keeps getting better and better. The trail manager is at the top of his game. The Mountain Bike Park at the parking area is a tremendously fun way to start your ride. They just added a new downhill with turns and jumps from the MTB park to the trails start that is a lot of fun. A great mix of trails from short and technical to longer and more cruising. I love this place!!

Review: Trail system has a little something for everyone except serious downhillers. Fast and flowing, tight and twisty, technical sections, skills area with a teeter-toter (not beginner friendly), 2 miles of grassy trails for grandma, and a lot of fun XC riding with more trails being built. Too bad they didn't have trails like this when I was growing up in the area, I might have had much less interaction with the local authorities.

Review: Awesome trails. Great variety. Well built and well maintained by a trail manager. I go during the week and seldom see another rider. Feels like you're in the middle of nowhere but you can be at Taco Bell 5 minutes after your ride. What more could you ask for? http://bedfordtrails.wordpress.com/about/ for map, trail updates, even some videos.

Review: Lovingly crafted by a mountain biker trail manager, for mountain bikers. Makes the most of the acreage they have. Variety, a few tight turns and some fast sections. Unfortunately, people abused the pump track and the teeter-totter skills area, and now it's gone. Definitely recommend going out to the White Rock Hill, Slick Rock trails area. A nice touch are the little warning signs marking ground hog burrows. A really nice park for family picnics too. Take it slow around the parking area, where other trail users may abound. Light it up on the outer trails. This system hosts multiple events too, so it contributes to the mountain bike culture in Central VA. Fat Albert is fun too, with its log crossings. Would like more skinnies to add to the fun. Close to Lynchburg and Roanoke, for something different.

Review: Nice size trail network with tons of potential. More information is available through Bedford County Parks website. This trail is almost exclusively singletrack with the exception of the occasional field crossing. You will experience a good amount of continuous elevation changes. This trail is switch back central and has only a few, well-placed roots and rocks. Some trail sections are new and not well worn in (Fat Albert comes to mind) and other sections are perfectly worn. You will go from a creek side trail to switch backs up and down a valley to field crossing. Highlights include a small "slick rock" section on slick rock, some fun fast berms on Sleepy Hollow, one teeter, and good general single track feel. The skills area (skinnys, pump track, etc.) was not impressive, and the network is more trail riding than freeriding. Takes about two hours to experience the entire park. I really wish that I lived close to this trail because it is a nice change from northern va.
