Trail Description
About this trail
This trail is a public trail on private property. There is no fee but a waiver is required (available at the trailhead). This is an out and back trail totaling 6 miles of singletrack trail. This is an intermediate trail with side loops that are for advanced riders. It contains whoop-de-dos, roller coasters, benched areas, rocks, bridges, switchbacks, ramps, and other technical features. It is not for beginners but intermediate riders should have few problems if the advanced sections are avoided. Beware of the Wooden whoop-de-do and the Plunges if you don't have the skill to ride them. At the bottom of the State Street trail go right (uphill) on Valley Street .1 mi to the Valley Street section. The State St. section is more technical than the Valley St. section. To get 6 miles in such a small area requires a tight trail and good bike handling skills are necessary, but the trail flows nicely and there are stretches where speed can be attained. Signage makes the trail easy to follow if you pay attention, and it is well maintained during the prime riding season. There is a fair amount of climbing to get back to the top of State St. This is a mountain bike trail only and foot traffic is not allowed. A trail map, pictures, and video links are available at lafayettebiketrails.com.

Review: The trail was recently shortened due to changes at the mansion but is now back to being obviously laid out. Also, a nature trail was incorporated so there is the possibility of foot traffic in some areas but it usually isn't an issue. The trailhead has moved to beside the garage on the West side of the drive and I haven't seen the waivers posted so they may no longer be necessary. It's not perfect but I consider it a jem for being in town and on private ground and very close to my house. It is transitioning from the owner mostly maintaining it to our local TMBA volunteers so be patient but we'll get there. Hit me up if you have questions, I'm new to this app but my email is sotipnomonatgmailcom. The upper roller coasters are not for the faint of heart. Enjoy!

Review: Terrible lay out, and terribly marked. How they figure six miles I'll never know. The trails are literally 4 feet apart crammed into the backyard of the Haan Mansion, and there is literally no flow. Don't waste your time.

Review: Where exactly is this trail at? The topo map shows it in the middle of downtown Lafayette with no trail depicted, so I assume it's somewhere else. I'm moving back to the area and would like to try this trail out.

Review: There is a Google map to the trail at lafayettebiketrails.com, but just in case: From 9th and Main St in downtown Lafayette, go south up 9th St hill; just before the top of the hill go left on State St. (1st left after South St) for 100 feet. The trailhead is on the left (north) side of the street at the far end of the long drive of the large house. You can see the trailhead sign from the road.
