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: This trail is in fantastic shape. Waverly has gotten better each year over the last three years. This is a credit to KYMBA and the volunteers who perform the trail maintenance. Evidence of their efforts are seen on almost every visit. Constant maintenance for this often ridden trail keep it in tip top shape. The trails are quickly cleaned after a storm - no surprising logs/ branches around a turn. While I do enjoy travelling to new trials each weekend, staying home and riding Waverly is no compromise. Go ride this trail. You won't be disappointed.

Review: This is a fun trail with some nice hills and tight turns. The park actually is split up in to three trails. I would recommend it and I will be back.

Review: I give this Track 4 stars, I never give anything 5 stars! lol, but There are 3 seperate tracks, Fresh Air Loop, Clinic Loop, and Twisting Turn Loop. Over near the playground there is a map of the trails, I suggest you check it out, Its really hard to get lost in these woods. The Trail is in excellent shape lots of down hills and little pump areas. Some areas you can get enough speed to launch off the ground with no effort. The hills are tough but so worth it. I havent see many walkers on these trails but they are there. I rode each trail one time and then rode two of them the opposite way and it took me about 2.5 hrs including breaks and stufff. this trail is def worth checking out.
If you want an expericne go into the trail head across the street from the playground, take the second Clinic loop trail, the only way i can describe that trail is "it's like a roller coaster" its got burms that twist and turn!! Epic Trail!!

Review: Do you live in Louisville? Does Cherokee Park just not giving your legs the workout they deserve? Then you have come to the right spot. Waverly Park will kick your leg's asses. This trail is hard, fast and has one of the meanest climbs around. Your lungs will hate you but its all worth it because the downhill is so FREAKIN FUN!!!

Hardpack singletrack, rooty at times, intermediate difficulty, not technical, just exhausting. ENJOY!!!

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.
