Review: New trail "F" is open. While it's in an open field, the wildflowers are beautiful and the last 1/3 flows really fast if you pump it.

Review: This trail has some very rooty sections, and narrow passthroughs. It's an even mix of up and down hill, and has some parts that flow really well. It's broken up into sections A-F. You cross several paths and roads to join them. Parking is not at 112 warrior drive, it's at 39.078129,-78.182652 on Line drive by the soccer fields.

Review: Decent beginner to intermediate trail system. Nice well maintained single track with a few rock and root sections but nothing technical at all. No climbs. Just fairly smooth flowing trails that are fun and not too hard to ride. Since 3rd Battle in Winchester closed...this is one of the closer places for me to come ride. I wish it was longer...I have to do 3-4 laps to get a good ride in and make it worth the drive. But it's fun. Great trail for anyone on a single speed or rigid bike which is what I ride here.

Review: (Im not very good at writing reviews)

I've recently got into mountain biking because my walmart special BMX bike kept breaking. So I got a walmart special mountain bike. I love riding on trails because I was always too scared to do any tricks on my bmx bike. I feel these trails are perfect for beginners like me. I started out slow, and progressively got faster and if more experienced riders come upon you, you're able to just pull over and let them pass. The trails are well taken care of. Which surprises me because in all the times I have been up there, I have not seen anyone working on the park. I have ridden on every single trail in this park multiple times. All of them have their own variations of inclines, hills, and obsticals. All of the trails have roots, some more than others. But to me, I don't find them to be a problem unless it is in a section for speed. There are enough trails to last you hours, depending on how you ride. I just have to warn you, check your bike the day after riding. I've ran over thorns from dead sticker bushes. Although its only happened to me once, I know people who have had it happen more than once. I rated this trail a 4 out of 5 because I wish there were some banked turns and more downhill parts, that is just my opinion though. I think these trails are perfect for any skill level mountain biker. Sorry if I jumped topics in this review, I am not the best at reviewing stuff.

Review: Just got back from checking these trails out. Unfortunately I completely underestimated the technical difficulty of these trails and my Missus took two spills straight outta the gate, cutting the ride in the woods short and relegating me to the asphalt cycle path (which was a nice path). We got through A and B slowly and I thought they were pretty neat trails, however, there were a bunch of real tight turns that with no berms, greatly reducing speed and flow. I won't be rating this trail until I get to ride it all. From what I have seen... the trails are not for beginners.

Review: (cont'd because the app apparently cut it off)



...roots that are in no way a challenge (maybe 1-2" wide). But the removal of a lot of these roots, which are piled now neatly by the side of the trail and have obviously been hand removed, have lead to mud holes in each spot. The same thing has happened in multiple areas where large rocks have been removed. I'm fine wish some slick spots but some sections of this trail (especially on section E) are now just completely rutted out and every corner is blown out. If you can't ride over roots and small rocks don't pull them out, please stay off the single track. ST doesn't need to be smooth, and it shouldn't be.

Review: I've reviewed this trail more favorably in the past. The winter has not been kind to it but the larger problem is trail use. It is very apparent that it has seen a LOT of wet use over the last couple months, and entirely nonsensical trail alterations have also occurred. I see a lot of fat bikes here which I love but it is apparent that many are not considering the impact their bikes are having. I grew up in Appalachia and have no problem with some mudd but the changes here amount to irresponsible trail abuse.

The latter concern is more troubling. There have been trees removed that were in no way encroaching on the trail, large sections of roots that are
