Trail Description
About this trail
I have been riding this trail for years and am still not bored with it. I just found new trails today that I have never experienced. To find these trails, you have to keep an eye out for the extra fun on the sides and detours off the main trail. Since I have gotten back into riding there, it seems like there has been a bit of neglect (there used to be sweet jumps and other obstacles built by riders), but they have eroded for the most part. There is still "Devil's Ditch:, which is a half pipe-styled ramp which you can't miss, and there seem to be 3 different of these, ranging from huge to beginner. So get out there and lets make this place recognized again, and maybe build some sweet obstacles again.

Review: I have been riding this trail on and off for approx. 35 years. I went recently and most of the trails are now off limits to biking. Now just the main trail from light rail tracks to falls rd is the only area that allows biking. A huge disappointment, this trail is the closest to home for a quick ride. Won't be going back

Review: This can be a fun trail if you know where you are going. None of the trails are marked so you have to discover for yourself. I live about 10 minutes away so i ride here often. I have mapped out about a 5K single ride thus far that has some good climbs, drops, and some technical pieces. great park if you have 30 minutes for a quick ride.

Review: I entered at the S-Turn because I was not able to find the trail from Robert E Lee Park. No sign of the "u-drop" or BMX course. Im thinking that the closed bridge may have led to them. What I was able to find was unremarkable. Some spots were overgrown and others had fallen trees. I was forced to dismount several times because I could not physically fit under a fallen tree or ride over a half fallen tree. Overall, meh, I will not be back.

Review: Great, fun trail. Its got everything including a great U drop, and a little hidden BMX course. You gotta find it, but its awesome.

Review: Fun trail, relatively short ride. There are a few jumps back in the BMX park. There are some challenging skinnys on top of natural logs. However, the trail does need some serious trail work to make many of the sections ride able, it is very overgrown.

Review: Robert E. Lee park is located off of Falls road. the best place to start this trail is at the following coordinates N 39*23.764 W076*39.805 once you find those coordinates you will be able to attempt this trail. This park is currently under renovation but the main trail is good for riding. very cool jumps after the old rail road bridge and will def attempt to jump them once the weather has cleared. do not attempt after a long rain as this trail is full of mud in some areas.

Review: We rode the trail this morning and the southeast side if you take the main entrance needs maintenance once you head around the lake. With the pedestrian bridge closed it's better to park further down Falls Road and come into the other side of the trails and then ride into park. The trails in this part of the park are in decent shape with some good rocky trails as you wind though the park.

Review: I posted that this trail is only 2 miles, but it can be much longer than that, depending on where you go. I meant 2 miles for the main trail, but there are numerous side trails.
