Mountain Biking Forest Hill Park
#44 of 285 mountain bike trails in Virginia
#1,670 in the world
Short small network of trails through a formerly fabulous (100 years ago or so), then dilapidated, now archeological find type of site. This park has been neglected for so long it has become beautiful again.
Trails in this park were part of the Xterra race (June 2004).
These trails are accessible from Reedy Creek (which is along the Buttermilk trail).
Excellently difficult to climb hills, both single track and paved. An excellent whoop-dee-whoop on the East end (a bit hard to find, go over the creek near Forest Hill Avenue).
Short trails, but worth exploring while riding the Buttermilk/Belle isle trails.
