Trail Description
About this trail
This trail is a great single track trail that is a out and back currently however it is being worked on daily and it get longer everytime I ride it. The out is a begins with a pretty steep climb the level off when you get near the top with some great switchbacks and nice bermed turns. With the climb being pretty steep on the way out it should go without saying that the trip back down is very fast and fun. Some areas can be a bit technical but the trail is well groomed. Great trail!
Phase I & II and part 1 of III complete. I &II West of Sleepy Hollow, and III is to the East. Incineratore, described above, leads to Bates-Coombs, a main loop flowing around the top of Western high ground. There is also Back Bowl, esentially a side loop from Bates, wich drops to base of hill and up again, and Train surfer (a 1 mile direct return to switchbacks and exit.) Plus two connectors.
Of Phase III There is access from dirt lot near the golf course off Montague rd, or Devou rd near Montagure. with at least 3 miles complete, and can be connected into loops of several lengths. maps and info at devouparktrails.com

Q: Does this trail system only offer downhill courses? If so how do you get back to the top once you reach the bottom? -feck

A: feck, it is more of a trail system then a downhill course. since all the trails are connected and wind around one another, most have some up and down hill. the highest elevation is most likely at the top of pigs tail, if i had to guess. it still is very fun and check it out!

Review: Sleepy hollow has a nice climb that is rewarded with a wonderful downhill. I prefer to run it clockwise entering on the 3rd trail past the first sleepy Holow sign and the following cutoff. It is very well marked. The downhill section has a couple of nice jumps, berms, and fast sections that keep your adrenaline up. I sometimes go here and run Sleepy Hollow 4-5x just for a quick workout. All of the trails are well marked and wonderfully maintained.

Review: Great stuff. Easy to navigate. Easy to find. I went on a Thursday morning by myself. There was enough people out there to make me feel fine going solo but not too many to make it difficult to maneuver around people.

Review: So I'm 49 and 225 and an intermediate Rider but trying to get back into shape. The incinerator side kicked my butt for fitness and was pretty technical and Rocky in parts. My used mountain bike gripshifter was in over it's head on these trails and made climbing difficult. Don't ride unless you are in solid shape and have a good bike. Even when trying to run down hill it was tough to enjoy because of the rapid Rocky turns and enough uneven hard terrain that caused my tires to bottom out at maybe 35 psi. Might go back tomorrow with higher inflated tires and try the Full Monty side which sounds a little easier. If you're extreme this trail is for you. It's well defined and has signs at intersections.

Review: A totally fun place to ride and now that I work very close to it, I expect to be riding it more. This was one of my regular trails when I first started to get back into mountain biking and it really helped me to get my dirt skills back after years of being a road rider.

Though I'm not a hard core DH rider by any means, I've really enjoyed the addition of the Full Monty and Sleepy Hollow trails and am really looking forward to giving them a spin on my new 27.5" bike.

Review: This is probably the most fun you could have on a mountain bike. From the parking lot on the Incinerator Trail side you'll climb up an unassuming gravel road past a metal gate. Past that it's straight up Incinerator to Bates Combs. If you don't stop to catch your breath you're not human. It's a monster climb but the downhill sections on Back Bowl and Train Surfer make up for it. Going up your legs will be in pain, going down your hands and forearms will feel the burn. Across the street from the gravel lot you'll see Old Lewisburg road and another metal gate. Follow the road around the gate for a mile or so and Sleepy Hollow will be on the right. This is a different trail from the others. This trail is about testing your handling skills at speed. There are several small BMX style dirt jumps that can provide for decent air throughout the trail. It's not overly technical just plain fun and fast. Full Monty can also be accessed from the Old Lewisburg road via Goat Path Trail. Goat Path is nothing special just a connector trail. Full Monty starts at the tee box of Devou Golf course. It's a solid 4 minute downhill speed trail. Lots of rhythm sections near the top and bottom with a couple rock gardens in the middle section. All in all its about 10 miles of trail and almost 1000 feet of elevation gain. Great trail!

Review: A totally sick park, I hope you're ready to climb because the down hills are Well worth it. The park has a great section of rock gardens and downhill berms for full paced speed. The park is also broken up into two sections so the new section is a little bit uphill on the left-hand side. A great addition to the park if I want more downhill fun I will definitely visit this...
