Review: I ride this trail a lot. Two week ago I almost broke my left middle finger when I approached one of the rock gardens, normally I ride right through them without difficulty, but this time my front tire just didn't ride up over and I stopped so hard my hand jambed into the front brake lever. It also twisted the stem down about 4 inches. This trail is becoming my favorite beating out Wild Turkey as the best in the triad. I can't get enough of this trail, I rode it last Sunday and Thursday too. A couple things to watch out for is the 5 rock gardens that are natural (not hand laid out smooth) and you just can't carelessly fly though them, on most of these you have to tread and pick your way through or you may bust a rim or spokes. Next, be extra careful because the layout of the trail is almost a perfect balance of short climb and twisty flow allowing for super fast riding on super hard pack but most of the bermed up turns are kinda tight for the speed that can be carried. Also the last tight turn when riding clockwise isn't bermed, it's off camber, that's on the long main trail across the dirt road.

Review: This place is short and sweet. An absolute blast. You'll want to ride it in both directions for sure. Fast, lots of flow, with some nice features.

Review: My favorite trail. Short but worth the 35 minute drive for me. I do 3 laps each visit. (10 miles) Fun both ways. Either way starts with a climb and ends with some more downhill sections. This is a new race venue as well. Lots of rocks but the more you ride it the easier it is to find the line. Just the right amount of technical challenge to keep you on your toes.

Review: Today was my first time riding the trails at Farris Park. They were a pleasure to ride. The trails were smooth and clear which allowed riders to traverse through the woods easily. However, there were a few rock gardens to give you a challenge. Definitely will be riding these trails again soon.

Review: Ferris Park is an awesome XC style trail with a good mix of optional obstacles. Fast with tons of flow. Beginners will definitely benifit from the balanced flow and well seasond riders will enjoy the speed they can carry. I taken my Rocky Mountain Slayer and my hardtail Trek and I have to say both styles of bike will put a smile on your face on these trails!

Review: Farris Park is a new trail built by a Professional Trail builder. Its 3 miles in length and lends itself to doing multiple laps because its so much fun. The trail has numerous rock gardens, and three easy climbs connected by smooth single track to fast banked turns.
