Trail Description
About this trail
From the parking lot take the gravel path not the paved one. This will lead you

through the park to the red trail. There're are many off shoots off of the red

trail. Be careful as many of the downhills are to steep for biking down.

Review: Terrible trail system, it started out overgrown and looks like the upkeep is nonexistent. The first single track ended about a quarter mile after it started then opened up to paved trails. I found where the single track started up again but some vehicles were blocking me from going to it so I took the paved trail. I ended up wiping out on the paved trail because it was slightly wet asphalt and my off-road tires just didn't cut it, I hit a downhill and my back end just started drifting and I finally lost it. Overall the worst day I have had biking and the worst trail I have ever been on. When I finally did find my way back to the single tracks they were once again overgrown and for some reason lasted only about another half mile and spit me out next to a baseball diamond. I would definitely not consider this worth riding unless you were desperate for some biking.

Review: Nothing too difficult. Mostly upset by directions given in opening.
There's trails in Veteran Acres Park and Sterne Woods Park.
Map here: http://imgur.com/6HhIhMq
Numbers mark parking places:
1. Gravel Parking lot at corner of Lorraine Dr and View St.
2. Parking lot on N Main Street at Nature Center
3. Near corner of Parkview Ct and Walkup Rd, there's a park. There's signs up that say no bikes, but at the back of the park are switchbacks that lead to the rest of the trails.
