Description
Waverly is a great park. It is a combination of old ATB and four wheeler trails with handmade MTB single track....I believe in thanks to the KYMBA. The trails are somewhat technical with the park itself divided into a few different areas. There is no certain path to follow so experiment and find a loop you like. It's got tons of climbs, lots of half tight single-trac, and some decent downhills(One of which is called the Luge). Clockwise is the standard direction most follow.

Review: Awesome ride, by far one of my favorites to date. Hard climbs and killer, long, fast downhills!

Review: Good flow, fast and clean. A tiny bit confusing but you should have the outs figured pretty quickly. Not very busy, it is kind of remote but it is worth the trip.

Review: One of my favorites in the state. Super fast great flowing trail made for mountain bikes. The only reason I don't give it a 5 is it's a little short. I can ride the whole thing in a couple hours. But if your thinking about coming to Louisville and spending the day riding. Do this trail then go to Cherokee. You'll have a great day.

Review: Love this park. The only intermediate element is the steep climbs. But if you're in any kind of decent shape you'll have no problem. The smooth swooping single track is pure joy. I hit 30.7 MPH on Clinic Loop and given my cautious tendencies you will probably go even faster.

Review: This is one of the best trail I have ever ridden. There are 3 loops and very easy to find them. Fresh Air Loop, Clinic Loop and Twisted Loop. The flow is amazing through clinic loop and you will absolutely love it. Strangely there are not many ppl riding this track. I am planning on going here everytime i get a chance. I rode Cherokee too but this park is pure joy.

Review: If you haven't been to Waverly in a while you will be surprised to find almost 3 new miles of flow trails have been designed and built by KyMBA Louisville in 2011/2012. Recommend a figure 8 starting on the Clinic Loop then Twisted Bends , finally coming back down to the parking lot on Fresh Air

Review: I found this trail as a newbie on a hardtail to be difficult at times and a blast on some of the downhill sections. I would ride this again no doubt. Even though i had to push through this one section both times around.

Review: I like this trail. Convenient to Louisville, plenty groomed, pretty good flow. You can make some nice loops out of the entire system, short or long. Good stuff.

Review: You will have to forgive me if I am not as detailed a reviewer as some I have read on here. It is a great trail. I prefer it over all I have ridden in KY. It reminds me a lot of Brown County, but much shorter of course. The trails are well maintained. It is a good intermediate trail, more for the cardio needed and not so much for the tech. There are never many people there so I like the blaze it as fast as I can. There are some tech. spots but nothing too harsh. I ride this trail when it is wet all the time and because they keep the trail so compacted you can still fly without slipping. Overall it is a fun trail that everyone should put at the top of their lists for KY trails.
