    Very easy mostly double track or 3 foot wide singletrack. So many trails in the area and It can be difficult to find which trail youre supposed to be on.

    Lots of trail maps but they dont indicate where you are so they are kinda pointless.

    Smooth trail to take young kids or new riders on.

    Not really single track. You will spend the majority of your time riding in thick, tall grass, dodging stinky piles of horse poo.

    Ridden the High Cliff trails numerous times. Short shaded sections along top of escarpment lead out to long rolling sections of multi-use trail (hikers, horses, runners). No truly technical sections. Good beginners trail or something if you want to go at a good pace.

    This is a horse trail that is mostly in a mowed field. A little single track in the woods, but not much. The grass was cut but long. I had to spend time at the end yanking the long grass out of my gears.

    Excellent trail system. Minor rocks and roots that you can roll right over. Relatively flat overall with nice woods and fields to ride in. Spent most of my time in the South area which has more trails. The North section has a nice climb and access to Lake Winnebago. Trails yesterday morning were dry, then it rained all afternoon. Absolutely loved riding the trails. Recommend for beginner to intermediate, experts may be a little bored but can make their own fun.

    High cliff is horse and bike trail. I almost got charged by a horse. Otherwise, great scenery and easy and fast trail ride.

    Not really meant for mtn biking. You can bike the horse trails...which is basically a big field. There are a couple other places you can bike here, but they are short and mostly filled with hikers and dogs. Dont know where they get 8 miles of biking here, but for someone looking for a good singletrack ride, this is not the place. Great for hiking, camping, and road biking though!!

    I really love this place. The scenery is awesome, especially along the cliff. Some parts of the horse/bike trail are really smooth, others have plenty of rocks, roots, ups and downs, and sharp turns. A fairly decent portion of the trail runs out around an open, but still pretty space, outside the woods. And there are a few more "trails" than the park map indicates, but you'll find "you are here" signs at the major connecting points. All in all, a really fun place to grind the knobby tires.
