Review: This trail system was a pleasant surprise. Some parts are very well constructed with plenty of berms and rollers. You won't find a bunch of tech features, but Cliffside has rocky ledges and some exposure that you'd never expect to find in Indiana. This trail system doesn't measure up to the truly great places, but it's definitely worth a stop.

Review: A fun fast trail. Climbs aren't bad, flows well, not to technical for a novice rider to ride. Plenty of trails to get as much or as little riding in as you want.

Review: Easily the best trail system in the Cincinnati area. You can ride all day here, it just flows and connects up with other trails. Cliff side is a little intimidating the first time. The drop would severely hurt you if you fell. Grandview is a fast XC trail and is really well put together. It does cost $9 to get into the park though, kinda pricey but they have a large swimming pool if you wanted to swim after riding.

Review: This place is fantastic. A small version of Brown County. There are about 16 miles of varied trail that snakes around rivers, valleys and cliffs. The difficulty is moderate for the most part, all singletrack, rooty and rocky with some minor lung buster climbs. "Grand View" has a really nice flow, the views are spectacular and you really feel secluded. This trail can be packed and you could ride all day without seeing a soul. Bring a camelback and repairs, it could be a very long hike out if you broke down as the trail does get away from society a bit. "Shadow Run" is a lot of fun, feels like a pump track in places.

Overall very fun ride, check it out if nearby. The park does have a pricey fee of $7.00/day, so make the most of it if you come.

Review: On my second visit, I rode Shadow and Cliffside, as an out and back. I'm still impressed with Shadow. It's rated as easy and could be riden by a raw beginner, but it's just so full of flow and + camber turns and pump, that almost anybody can love riding it. Started counter clock wise and it was fun but I'd say it flows better and bermed more for clock wise, which ends in a grand but not too technical down hill and one last big berm that shoots out into the exit to parking. :D Cliff side still gnarly and fun with a good sence of exposure. Water wasn't much flowing at the falls, I'd like to see that. and It rides well both ways.

Review: Rode Grandview trail for my first time. Love the trail. Lots of flow and yet the uphill sections seemed moderate. I rode it clockwise coming off of Creekside trail. GV trail is marked well and easy to follow. I did NOT care for Creekside all that well. Lots of loose (small) rock on most of trail. Very rough ! One small tree top across the trail. But was able ride thru it on my way back. Did enjoy the scenery on GV.

Review: The folk who built this know Flow. Every part flows well. Also noticed they put in drainage every little while. Almost no tech except KILL DEVIL FALLS, and probably could of cleaned that to if I wasn't a chicken. :) They have 6 named trails on the map from gate. The only one actually difficult at all is Cliff side. Pretty Gnarly. Fun not too hard. Shadow loop made me work a little to get elevation then flowed nice all the way back with lots of burms and improved stream crossings.Grand View might be in the winter. Some of the rocks at lower elevation look OMG sharp.

Review: This trail system is a ton of fun with some tough climbs and awesome descents. There are also a lot more trail miles than listed here. I counted about 15 miles and expanding according to a park ranger I talked with. This is a definite must ride.
