Mountain Biking Indian Road Woods

This is a nice option for those in the city who are seeking some singletrack close by. The trail basically follows the river with a parallel trail on the higher ground above the flood plain for at least part of the way. There is enough elevation change, twists and roots to keep the trail interesting and there are at least two spots with some jumps and woop dee doos. One of these is in the area north of central. There are a few spots that you have to dismount like a railroad crossing and a few street crossings. Nonetheless, when this trail is dry it's a nice trail to get a quick singletrack fix close to the city.

    Decent for the city. Lots of deer. Flows pretty well too. This trailhead is a bit messed up though. I ended up riding the paved trail towards cicero and getting on by the volleyball/tennis courts.

    This is the only single track (work mentioning) that I have found in the city. It is good for quick ride after work if you live in the area. Surprisingly it feel quite remote and throws a few fun obstacles at you.
