Description
Lots of singletrack run through the park, which is heavily wooded. Lots of big climbs and long downhills, some jumps and obstacles made out of logs, stream crossings, tight switchback curves, and what appear to be either sinkholes or abandoned mine shafts (these are surrounded by orange fencing, but keep an eye out for them). There is one main trail that runs through middle of park and all others branch off of that for the most part. Have fun!

Review: Great singletrack. The only reason I did not give a 5 star, was because of the lack of track directions. Once I decided to just go with it, the trails became a lot more fun.

Review: Not much direction to the trails although they were fun and technical. Nice bridge drop into the creek and some single rail across other parts of the trails. All around good fun looking forward to coming back and tearing up more trails.

Review: Trails near the creek were mostly wiped out during a flood last year. You really need to pay attention to where you're going or end up in a sinkhole or riding off the edge of a bluff. There's some good climbs and pretty good downhill runs as well.

Review: This is one of the best trails in the Mid-west under 15 miles. Great technical sections, rocks roots, skinny bridges, creeks etc, and a great dedicated crew to keep things running smoothly!
