Review: The description on here is wrong about the trail. I have been riding this trail system for 10 years now and have seen it go up and down. It is way better than it used to be. EVMA takes care of the trail system. It is not 3 miles. Just the outer loop will put you at almost 5 miles. there are a lot of different section of the trail. highlest elevation is ave 15 ft. There are spots that many do not find as they dont turn off the mail trail. There are jumps, technical obsticles, a BMX area, single track, tight turns. Two parts to the park. There is a field with power line towers that split the trail up. 3 entrances, maybe 4 in between. There are 4 spots to enter the trails. The main parking thoug is the indian river park side, the other side of the trail is called IPSWITCH. There is so much to this trail system. Its awesome to have only 8 mind away.

Similar Trail: none in the area

Review: The trails are definitely progressing from what they used to be. A new trail is being built and it's much more challenging than some of the other areas of the trail. There are still plenty of features scattered throughout the trails to keep it fun. Much more direction as to where the trails go. "Follow the blue trail markers". Then after your warmed up hit the new trail at the trail head. It's not finished yet, but you will get a thrilling ride with berms, bridges, drops, and a good flow. Thank you to person working on this trail.

Review: Someone's been building some pretty nice new features out here on the Ipswich side... follow the small ridge FROM Drew Drive and hit the trails the drop off the right side... it does NOT flow as well when heading TOWARD Drew Drive...

Similar Trail: It's like a flat Maury in Newport News

Review: This was the first trail I rode after buying my new bike. The whole system is fun and provides a plethora of different obstacles to ride.

Review: This is a great place to learn how to ride. I am not sure an advanced rider would find this place fun, but it offers several steep climbs, drops, and narrow bridge crossings.

Review: Great trails if you are just starting out or if you just want to hit something that isn't too difficult or technical. My wife is just starting out and this is a great spot to get her used to trail riding. There are some TTF's and a section where the local BMXers have created some pretty sweet jumps. There are some sections with roots but overall not bad.

Review: consider this my home trail. been ridding here since around 1987. Flat but flowy and great for the area. some TTAs have fallen apart over the years but others have appeared. EVMA does a great job keeping it up. Easy to get lost but just pick a symbol and follow. A good long one is the green >. pretty much takes you the around the entire Park. One side is considered IPSWITCH and the other is IRP. Get out there and just ride. Lots of hikers and dogs on the weekends but everyone gets along. BMX jumps are fun to stop and watch when they are at it. Defiantly worth a look if you are in the area

Similar Trail: nothing really to compare with in VB or Cheseapeke

Review: This actually a great place to ride. I keep reading old reviews saying it was in bad shape and that it was covered in litter. I did't find any of that to be the case. Lots of small trails that criss cross the park. The brides seemed to be well maintained. There are a lot roots in the trails. So what if there are. It kinda comes with riding a bike somewhere besides road or sidewalk. There is a very nice BMX section with lots of jumps that are very well maintained. Besides those jumps it mostly flat narrow trails with lotsa switchbacks along some ditches. If you can't stand how how flat it is then move to Colorado otherwise enjoy. The key is to go across the power line field.

Review: Decent ride, nothing too technical or difficult, but an easy flowing bunch of trails. It's not hard to find your way out, but it could be marked better.
