Review: This place is gnarly for being in illinois. It has some steep parts as well as some killer drops and jumps. I've crashed more than a few times here. Perfect for dirt jumper and bmx, small bikes have the advantage. Overall amazing place hidden from most bikers around here.

Review: Lots of technical logs, challenging tree roots climbs & descents & obstacle shenanigans with a sprinkle of rock-garden-ISH to keep the loops well rounded. I greatly recommend the amateur friendly bridges for those that are a little timid around them but having someone show you the runs and pointing out bailouts would be beneficial. There were some exciting points riding trail which appeared eroded by the creek. The trails were twisty with occasional tight trees for fun, surprise dips, short hills, only a handful of blissfully short intense-climbs and overall very fun segments.. I'm always delighted how much easier things seem after a warm up/feeler lap on single-tracks. I feel that I've grown a little more as a rider and have gained a lil' appreciation in what I can do on two wheels after shredding another under-rated spot and that is a GrEaT feeling. Be kind, all trails are currently yellow and you will need to walk a couple spots: Cambr appreciates you not widening their trails I'm sure & trail conditions etc accessible cambr.org. Final note: wear an extra coat of bug spray & there are no public toilets or water fountains/vending machines for miles. 19 days cigarette free & it really helps to get the heart rate up with good friends & good times. ?? #ridewhatyoubrung

Review: Its a great trail, it was really muddy in most areas so I was limited to small area of the trails

Review: The trails were in pretty good shape. There are a lot of off-shoot trails from main loop that keep it interesting. Many wood features for technical people, several ramps over logs. Comparing it to a trail I ride near Cincinnati, very few tree roots. I found the bmx area but was not going to kill myself, so I did not try out those jumps. I give this 5 stars because it has something to offer for the novice through the seasoned mtn bike rider. Great place to check out! I did notice that there was not many bermed corners which I like, but that was no big deal. Highly recommend this trail for a fun time.

Review: Really enjoyed Beulah park. Terrain was alittle different for this part of the Midwest. Very rooty trail and they didn't seem to over do maintenance to cater to beginner riders. Jump lines were added bonus. They could do a better job with trail markings though. It was tough to navigate.

Review: Nice trail system, they definitely get the most out of the limited real estate there. Not much climbing to be had here, but a fun winding system. May want to put some skinny bars on because there's a lot of tight spots between trees.

Review: The majority of the mtb track would be considered intermediate but including all of the obstacles this trail could definitely be taken as advanced. There are a multitude of log rides ranging from full fallen trees to we'll maintained snaky half log rides as well as berms in most needed areas and you will find wood bridges connecting most wide gaps allowing you to carry speed which you will need to make it up some of the short but steep climbs. All in all this is a challenging action packed trail system geared towards riders looking for more of an obstacle oriented ride than flat windy track. The system has lots of side trails to explore each loop so If you are more on the aggressive side, the well maintained BMX section of the trail will give you a run for your money, defiantly for experienced riders only, and if your looking to hone your skills, the single track on the main line will almost always provide ride arround options. I drove from Milwaukee and so far this track has the best free jump sections I've seen arround the area!

Review: this grouping of trails is pretty flat. there are some steep hills to climb or ride down. short cross country trials that are tight and technical. my favorite is the jump lines. the jumps are smooth and some you can even land on the down side of the slope. the roots make for some good little bunny hops too.its pretty awesome that there are bmx jumps thrown in there. its a bit overgrown on some trails unfortunately.

Review: It's spelled "Beulah Park". Mostly flat singletrack but nice and flowy. Great for all skill levels. A few good steep but short sections with jumps to be found. Make sure to explore different trails so you can find the cool ride-on log features, multi-level balance beams and other awesome man-made features. The trail crew always makes updates and improvements. There are a couple jump lines in the making but nothing is ready last I checked. I live near Beulah so I ride here often in the summer months once the trails are good and dry. Enjoy!!

Review: Nice trail system. A little wet today, stayed off of saturated areas. Narrow with lots of switchbacks and some fun features. Some decent elevation changes considering where it's located. No parking lot that I could find so you just park on the street. I'll be back.
