Mountain Biking Hampton Hills

****   Add a review
#20 of 106 mountain bike trails in Ohio
#1422 in the world

Great for serious beginners with some technical areas and areas that give good flow. Scenic and well kept by metro parks.

With just over 7 miles of trails, this area features beginner, moderate and intermediate sections with optional skill features.

Eventually, this area will offer up to 16 miles of trails.

    This place has it all from beginners to expert It has something for everybody! This park is very well-maintained and does not allow hikers which makes it perfect for riding!

    Just rode HH for the first time this year and there is another new loop in the top section now that improves that area tremendously. I live very close to HH and am thrilled to have such a great network of trails as my "home" ride. Fast and flowy is what/how I like to ride and HH fits that bill perfectly. I prefer not to deal with roots and obstacles while flying through the woods and SMP has done a great job of creating a trail clear of that junk, while to other reviewers' points replete with great banks, descents, climbs, pumps, etc. Thanks SMP!!

    Rode this trail yesterday for the first time and was very impressed. It hasn't rained in a few days so the trail was pristine and made for a very pleasurable but also exciting ride. This trail has great sweeping speed areas, good uphills, small jumps, and some really nice quick banked turns. I would definitely recommend starting out on the intermediate trail to get warmed up and taking the blue trail option halfway, its a blast. I went over to the moderate trail but was already too tired to try the advanced section, I'll likely be trying it out sometime next week and can't wait!

    The green trail is an uneventful but nice warm-up and provides a way to add mileage. The Woodward creek loop is short but interesting. The best riding is during a steep decline about a half mile into the ride. It has several steep switchbacks that are fun to rip through. The remainder of the trail is technically easy and could use some roots and obstacles to add challenge. It relies on flow and pump tracks for interest, which is fun, but it feels over cleared. Overall, its a good little trail that has a different feel than surrounding systems. Great job by the developers and I look forward to coming back!

    My sons and I visited Hampton Hills today and we had a blast. The trails are well maintained and well thought out. We find when exiting the intermediate level it was a little confusing which trail to take but other than that they are well marked.

    Fun flow. Nice for beginners to Advanced shredders. I must ride if you are in the area.

    Great trail for some short but fun down hill to get a little rowdy! Nice mix of climbs as well! Can't wait to go back to see the new sections!

    I'm new to single track. For me this place is very fun, I just wish it was open more. Make sure you check @SMPmountainbike for updates before heading out.

    Awesome place. I'm a new rider and struggled with the back more advanced section. The front beginner part is great for kids/beginners. Good place to build skills. The downhill/switchback portion is a little intimidating for a new person

    Great trails. The beginner trail is short but has a nice flow to it, the intermediate is good as well and can easily be ridden 3 times. But the best trail is the advanced on the other side of the park. It's a great downhill ride with technical aspects throughout. The climb up can be tough at the end but its totally worth going down.

    Great beginner trails. Nice flow. Well taken care of and newly built. Could be longer and more technical areas would be a plus.

    The beginner/intermediate loops are really short and super easy. The dirt parts are nice and flowy but a good part of the trail is in rocks, like parking lot gravel stuff. It's more of a warm up before going to the other side.
    The advanced side to the north across the field is FUN going down!!! A few jumps and obstacles and fast! Going up is tough but if you're somewhat conditioned it's not that bad.
