Trail Description
About this trail
Only about 10 minutes from Fairborn and Wright-Patterson AFB. There is enough parking for at least 20 vehicles. Bathroom facilities consist of only port-a-lets. There are no sinks/water available. Here is the official ,page http://www.metroparks.org/Parks/Huffman/MoMBA.aspx This park actually consists of 6 different trails from beginner to difficult with various lengths ranging from about 1 miles to about 2 1/2. There are over 8 miles of trails total and they may be ridden both ways. These are all mountain-bike only trails - no joggers, runners, or motor vehicles allowed. All of the course is in the forest with lots of turns, twists, humps, and (mostly) minor climbs. The routes are EXTREMELY well marked and easy to follow. There is a trail guide at the beginning and at 5-points (where 5 of the trails cross), however, you will probably want to make sure to bring a printed trail guide. EMS points are also available if an accident should occur, but I did not see a phone or alarm so make sure to bring your cell phone (coverage should be very good - there is a cell tower not 2 miles away.) The low areas crossing small cricks have been pretty well paved with stones. The trails are mostly stone and rock free (just compacted dirt) except for the difficult course. I personally did not find a big difference in difficulty between the easy and medium course, but Hawk's Lair (difficult) proved to be a huge jump in difficulty. It was pretty challenging for me as a newbie mountain-biker, but serious bikers would probably not have much trouble at all. All trails have a lot of turns with some narrow spots between trees. There are bridges for the lower-swampy areas. You have to ride through some of the courses to reach others. I typically ride around 9-11 am and there were only about 6-8 people in the park. Note: This is not a course for young children (pre-teens or younger unless they are in excellent cycling condition). Also, if you have a low-end discount store bike, it is going to take a tremendous beating and so is the rider. You will want some low gears for this course. Overall, it is a very well done course and I look forward to getting back out there tomorrow.--written by Icester

Review: Great fun. Took my wife and she loved it. We will be going back soon. Only issue is all the trails cross each other and go both ways. Just a little confusing but VERY well taken care of. Will be going back....

Review: Fun little system in the Dayton area. I has several little loops that all meet in the middle of the park that can be all sewn together in multiple ways to make a new route every time you are there. Nothing too difficult but does have a few little tech areas. There's multiple places to get rescued if you get hurt and need medical attn. Def check this out if you are in the area.

Review: Narrow, tricky, aggressive cornering, not a trail for high speed DH stuff. Difficulties are from relaxing level to really technical level. Great trails for serious riders.

Review: This is where it all began for me. Wonderfully maintained lots of climbs and descents. Some smooth rolling single track and a rock garden and other man made obstacles. Love it love it.

Review: Best Riding I have found in Southwest Ohio! Exceptional trail building, and finally some good technical climbs/descents in the back. Just wish it was 5 times bigger!

Review: Very nice trail system. My only complaint, 800mm wide bars are not welcome on this trail! A lot of narrow tree spacing. Very nice tech sections. I really enjoyed the trail. Some very good flow. A new section is about to be finished, and it is very cool. All of the techy stuff are short runs, nothing too hard!

Review: Great trail system! One suggestion would be a rotation of direction (every other day) on the trails. There were 3-4 other riders there at the time I was and I almost ran into all of them. Just not enough trail to space everyone out. Still a great ride.

Review: MoMBA is a very nice intermediate trail that has nice flow to it. The trail is kept in very good shape and has some very fun sections. It is bi-directional so you can have fun mixing up your rides. There is an advanced section that has more technical features and a rock garden. I have been riding this trail for over two years and it is still a blast to ride!
