Mountain Biking Horns Hill Park
#40 of 108 mountain bike trails in Ohio
#3,496 in the world
There are four trails (purpose cut ST DH runs), adding up to maybe 5 miles. There are berms, dirt jumps, rollers, small gaps, small walls and wooden drops. Do a DH run, and then either pedal back up the short hill for another run or shuttle up. It looks like Central Ohio has a nice little DH park here. The config for Horns Hill is a "network" because the climb back to the top is rather short, so you can keep networking trails together by riding the road back up. Of course many probably see this as a shuttle config.
Warning this trails are not kid friendly, you need a full suspension and disk breaks. The biggest jump is 22 feet - it is a gap on trail with no sign.
Trail 1 has a 6 foot Drop and a 10 foot Drop. It is the steepest trail with a 68 degree angle, so it is fun but be careful!
Trail 2 is the easiest trail out of all of them.
Trail 4 is a technical trail, with an easy start the start but turns gnarly quick.

On I-70 east of Columbus take Exit 132 (OH SR 13/Jacksontown Road). Follow SR 13 north into Newark. Remain on SR 13 and on the north end of town look for Waterworks Road to your right. Turn right on Waterworks, go about 0.4 mi and cross the beautiful North Fork of the Licking River. After crossing the river, immediately turn left onto Horns Hill Road. The park is immediately on your right. You can park at the bottom (across the street from the entrance) and ride the road up to the top of the park (and trailheads), or you can drive up and park on top. The road is a bit steep 250' climb in less than a 1/2 mi, so it should be a nice short work out to start with and to add between DH runs.
