Trail Description
About this trail
Trail starts at an easy, level meadow (Green) trail and winds through toward the medium wooded (Yellow) trail which offers some nice tight chalenges with small obstacles. About a mile on the yellow trail is a branch to the difficult (Red) trail. Larger obstacles from boulders to large tree roots, fallen trees and small to medium often dry ravines make this trail test your abilities. If you are not an experienced rider this trail is not for you.
There does need to be more trail markers along all trails. The park map is nearly useless because it is a non color copy. If you plan on riding here print one off the State park website www.dnr.state.oh.us/parks/parks/dillon . This park has camping, fishing, horseback riding, beach, boating and more. An excellent place for friends and family.

Review: I rode these trails yesterday and I had an absolute blast! I have a hard time classifying these as solely imtermediate or advanced as I really feel like they are somewhere inbetween. It seems that they have marked the trails better, however an updated map would be nice to have if there is one out there. The trails really do seem to have it all; fast flowy single tracks, great rock gardens, challenging climbs...probably some of the best trails I have ridden. The views of the lake along lower section were fantastic and the facilities at the park office and the camp store were very nice..I will certainly be riding there again.

Review: Decent trail great workout! Lots of roots and rocks. New areas need to be marked better it is easy to get lost at intersections.

Review: Dillon Is a MUST RIDE for any mountain biker within 2 hour range of this trail. This trail is often overlooked by folks in Ohio and for the life of me I cannot understand it. It has a lot to offer in variety. It is not for those who like smooth, easy and non challenging trails. This trail will test your technical skills and your lungs if you choose to ride the whole loop. Bottom line, if you like good old rough and challenging trails with fun fast flowing sections also, then you will like Dillon. In the Spring and after lots of rain the trail will have areas that are soggy but it actually drains fairly good in the mid summer and fall.

Review: It was pretty wet when we were there. About half the trail had pretty bad weed encroachment but you can see that they're trying to keep up with the maintenance as half of it was cut back too. With all the rain that we've been having and the length if the trail you can see why it's hard to keep up. Otherwise the trail is fun with some good riding.

Review: Rode the yellow trail yesterday and by far the hardest 11 miles of intermediate trail we've ever ridden in Ohio. Good amount of roots & tricky uphill cutbacks on bridges, damn near went off one bc I wasnt carrying enough speed. Make sure your brakes are in good working order too cuz you'll need em on the slippery rocky descents..more climbs than we expected too. Back half could use some decent trimming and widening as the briars let us know they were always around. Like others have said the trail map sucks here so print out a nice one and study it b4 u ride. But overall a satisfying ride and feel of accomplishment when done. We ended up taking the road back to the trail head @ the beach/parking lot once we came out to a paved road, cabins and parking area off to the right. There were no marked yellow posts to continue on back to the trailhead where the trail starts. The only trails that were marked across the cabin road were more blue horse trails. If you come to this road go to the stop sign, take a left and continue up the road past the cemetary on your left and the beach/park office/parking lot is about 1.5 miles away.

Review: Dillon is my 'home' track and its awesome. It has everything from fast single track to difficult rocky descents. The hills will get to your wind, but every climb is rewarded with really fun downhill runs. It gets wet here so make sure you allow enough time for it dry out after rainy periods. Have fun!!!

Review: Wow ! is all I can say. I've heard of these trails for a couple years but have never taken the time to drive up there to check them out. After my friend told me more about the trail and the fact he goes there often to ride, I decided to join him on a ride on the 19th of June, 2010. Extremley nice trails. I'll post a video of our adventure.
