Review: This trail has the potential to be much better and offer more to those who enjoy Mt Biking. Much of the trail was difficult to find, need grooming and lacked excitement. However.... with some regular grooming, finding a way to connect the trails, some added sweet spots this trail could be a 5 star spot!

Review: For someone who lives in Jackson, this is a 5-star trail just for the fact that it's a legit place to ride that's close to home. For an out-of-towner, maybe 3 or 4 stars. It might lack any marquee features or challenges, but the tight twisty layout with some punchy climbs (some with roots & rocks) will challenge you and give you a great workout if you pedal.

Review: Really fun trail has some easy sections and other sections that may challenge novice riders with the occasional drop or log to bunny hop over...overall biginner trail great fun! However navigating between the "separate trails" was a pain in the rear. Navigation of the trails is very difficult if you haven't ridden here before. There are Soto many sections of road riding between exit of one trail and enterence of the next. Could be better but not bad for the heart of Jackson!

Review: If you are looking for a park your car at the trail head and have a great day riding then this trail is not for you. The trails are way too spaced out with too much road riding between. The day I went was an epic waste of time. The park was full of cars and soccer players with families. Not a relaxing fun filled day of riding I was looking for. I hope this review will save others from making the same mistake I made. So many other great trails to enjoy!!!

Review: There are a lot of trails scattered throughout the park. It can be difficult to link the trails together and sometimes you can't avoid taking the roads to get from one trail to another. School and tunnel trails are very fun with some elevation changes and switchbacks. They have some fast sections with technical features here and there. Overall its a good place to ride with a lot of different trails to choose from.

Review: Just had time to ride 3 of these trails. Trails are scattered throughout the park. Go to Cascades Cycling Club web site for a map of the TH's and dir. on how to string them together. http://www.cascadescyclingclub.org/ Rode Museum, Tunnel, and School trails. All were a lot of fun, They have managed to pack a lot of trail in a small area ( Can high 5 you buddy as he rides by).* Review edited 7/9/2010
