Review: Drove 4 hrs from Wisconsin to ride here on a warm 37 f Winter day . I wasn't disappointed! There are a lot of short climbs but fun downhills follows them! There is signs along the way but no maps, so bring a paper map or your phone if you need to figure out what to ride. I just ride and don't care .. lol The trails I rode were easy to intermediate. There were some rocks and roots , nothing to difficult here . It was awesome to rid in January and even more awesome the trails were in good condition!

Review: The trails are awesome, but the locals aren't that great. I checked this place out this weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the trails. I love flow trails and the Green Valley, Aynes and North Tower trails were awesome. Great flow, manageable climbs, a little bit of tech to keep it interesting. Unfortunately I did not have enough time to check out the other trails, so a return trip is a must. My only problem was with the local riders. Everywhere I have ridden, when the trails are bi-directional, the rider traveling downhill supposed to yield to the rider coming uphill. The locals here do not follow this principal. They seem to prefer the "run the uphill traveling rider off the trail and curse at them while doing it" principal. On the Aynes loop alone, I was forced off trial on three separate climbs, in 3 miles, all by what appeared to be (judging from the bike specs and kit of the riders) experienced riders. I was also heckled by a rider, after heading back to my car after a 20-mile loop, who accused me of "giving up too soon." Who says that to someone they don't know and who has no idea how far someone has ridden or what the circumstances are? Couple other things to note: The campgrounds here are huge and noisy. The sites are very close together and from what I can tell, the quiet hours from 11PM to 7AM is not observed or enforced. There are 400 campsites, so this is not a low-key area. If you want, you can ride directly to the trails from your campsite, which is really nice. Trails are very well-marked and they give you a map when you enter the park ($7 for IN residents and $9 for out-of-state plates.) If you have your bikes on top of your car, play it safe and enter the park at the West gate. The 9' limit at the north gate has no room for error. I'll definitely be back, but might try to make my return trip during the week when the trails would be less crowded with riders looking to set KOMs at the expense of other riders safety.

Review: Impressed with these Epic trails. Rode a couple days over the Labor Day weekend and had a blast. Sustained climbs, followed by nice fast downhills. Aynes and Green Valley were excellent trails. Even the greens were fun. Some roots, rocks, switchbacks and creek crossings all made for an excellent ride. Rented a Marin Pine Mountain 2 from Hesitation Point Bike Shop and it handled everything on the trails like a champ. Want to come back and ride here again. Miles of smiles.

Review: Started near the pool area. Very fast and flowy. About 7 miles in some climbing. This is a must ride trail. One of the funniest I've ridden and I've ridden a few.

Review: What a wonderful system of trails that HMBA has built here in the state park. My wife and I had a blast riding these trails for 3 full days. Loved North tower and Green valley for their fast flowy traits. My wife then was kind enough to shuttle me to the top of hesitation point and I would ride that trail, green valley and North gate to the bottom. about 550 feet of descent here in the Midwest is really cool. One other reason why this trail system is so good is the fact that it is located right next to the town of Nashville Indiana which has great restaurants, bars and shops.
