This is a very hilly park, and all of the trails are either going up or down for the entire length, some of it in the shadow of the Six Flags rollercoasters!
If you haven\\\'t been to Greensfelder recently, you\\\'re in for a pleasant surprise. The Dogwood Loop has been almost completely rerouted to lengthen it and bring it up to IMBA standards, as well as adding a number of new features, such as a banked s-turn, and some rocky sections. GORC has also added about 0.5 miles of new trail to DeClue which leaves almost all of the existing trail in place, but bypasses one unmaintainable section. If you like choosing your lines, fast narrow descents, and rocks to test your skills, then you\\\'ll love this new section.
Due to the number of trail features, and its rocky surface, DeClue is considered a fairly technical place to ride. Expect a tough workout, and some sections that may require hike-a-bike (for short runs). Dogwood is fast and flowy, with some rocky spots thrown in to keep you on your toes.
Trail traffic often includes horses, so be careful and courteous when encountering equestrian traffic. Always dismount your bike and go off the downhill side of the trail. But for the most part, this park is underutilized. Make sure and take the bug spray in the summer.
If you want to \\\"taste\\\" Greensfelder before diving in, ride the Dogwood trail first. Depending on how you choose to ride the loops, you can get in rides from 7 to nearly 15 miles. (pasted from GORCTRAILS.COM)
