Review: The Griffin Bike park is great for me and my daughters to ride at. My daughter age 15 and on the Bison Mountain Bike team, plenty of great training and ability level trials for her. Then my other daughter age 10 many miles that are safe and fun for her to ride. Then dear old Dad can have fun with them, or venture off on my own. Love the floating lake bridge, and being able to ramp into the water at special events.

Review: Great bike park with something for everyone. From kids on strider bikes on the basic training trail to expert riders on the jump line, expert trails & dual slalom course and everything in between. It's a must ride destination that you can make a weekend out of.

Review: If you need to get out and ride some easy trails or ride some very challenging trails come visit the Griffin Bike Park. There is something for everyone to ride. For any new comer Fridays nights there is usually a casual ride where Friends of the bike park will escort groups of riders around the trail system to explore and help acclimate rider to wonderful trail system. Truly blessed to have such a wonder place in my back yard!!!

Review: This place just keeps getting better! The staff continue to amaze with new trails, impressive riding features, and "polishing" the existing stuff. This park is well worth the drive from ANYWHERE. Bring the family because there is something for everyone! Can't find that in many other parks...

Review: Griffin Bike Park has something for everyone. From the first time kid on a push bike to the expert rider. This park allows you to do everything from xc riding to jumping on the jump lines. With 2 pump tracks designed and built by a company with experience building from backyard tracks to the Rio Olympic BMX track. This is a world class bike park that is improving regularly and worth the trip.

Review: I will admit, I was intimidated about going to the park for the 1st time. Once I got there and saw the various ages, 6-70 years olds riding, I quickly started riding in the beginner area with my grandson. I moved up to the dual slalom and then to one of the easier trails. There is something for every skill level, and what ever difficulty you are looking for. Great family activity to keep you in the best of shape. I'm excited about doing more riding when I retire this spring!
