Review: This is a great retreat in the middle of an urban environment. The trail builders made the most out of a confined area. I saw two deer, an 8 point buck and a doe. There are two distinct areas, the West side of the parking lot is largely flat and easy. Good newbie material. The East side is a whole different story, short but steep climbs, some nice log-overs, some descents with switchbacks and the technical highlight is a rock garden built from the rip rap (big rocks that prevent erosion) under a bridge. That was one unforgiving section. The trail goes up and down the sides of the Ottowa River valley and flood plain

Review: Pretty fun trail with a surpising amount of downhill for the area. If you are from this area, you know how flat it is here. I wouldn't go out of my way to make it here but if its closest trail to you (or if its the second closest but the closest is munson park which is absolutely flat) its a fun workout with a couple challenges.

Review: Nothing difficult about this trail. A few obstacles that were marked were fun. The trail is marked very well except where a new amphitheater was built, but I figured out you go straight up the side of the hill beside the amphitheater. Pretty flat trail but the switchbacks and slick spots keep it interesting.

Review: Great job on the trail Toledo, making the best of what we have!!!! This trail was extremely well marked and had some nice skill challenges. I had a a lot of fun riding on this trail, and it utilizes a good amount of space downtown. I could use more jumps, that would throw some more fun into the mix. All in all a great trail for the city of Toledo, and it's residents. I hope more people can go and try it out.

Review: I had never trail ridden before, saw a youtuber out in CO do it and it looked like alot of fun. Grabbed my old Diamondback Wildwood(Sporting Goods Store bike) from my parents house, and gave it a whirl. Needless to say I was surprised by the challenge that it gave me. One very steep sandy switchback in particular and a pretty much destroyed Monroe underpass made it impossible to stay on the bike the entire trail. I was glad to see there was a lot of work done to maintain the trail in the way of removing downed trees, mowing of some long grass that was growing up to the edges of the trail.

Learned my lesson, made some cheap but important improvements to the bike(Properly adjusted brakes, new saddled, properly adjusted derailuers, swapped my grip shifts from another old bikes trigger shifters, adjusted saddle height, new cables/housing, lower tier pressure) and some improvements to my skills(Learned to manual, bunnyhop, ect..) Don't worry I plan to get an actual MTB soon.

Second go round was very fun, the track dried out a bit and it was much faster and flowey, I was more confident and the Monroe underpass was fixed. Overall I think I found a new hobby thanks to youtube, and a group of MTN Bikers who made something I never would expected to exist in the middle of Toledo.

Review: I was pleasantly surprised by this trail system. Although it pales in comparison to the better trail systems out there, it was more than I expected from a small park right in the center of Toledo. The trail system has limited elevation change and the "expert" areas will make you giggle, unless you really feel multiple warning signs are necessary for a small jump. Still, the system has decent flow for the limited space and there are even a few berms to be found. I was really impressed by the skills area, which is the best I've ever seen (or was the best). It is sadly overgrown and appears to see no use. I found it enjoyable anyway. Speaking of seeing no use. I rode after work on a beautiful evening in the fall (perfect weather) and I was the only one on the trail. How can that be when the system is right in the middle of a good size city? Hey Toledo, get out and ride!

Review: Decent trails, but not super long. Plenty of mud and one or two decent climbs. The few man made "obstacles" that can be avoided. Occasionally you will run into a downed tree that you will need to portage over. One of the better trails in the area

Review: If you're looking for a pretty nice relaxing ride with a bit of excitement this is the trail for you. There are a few nicely constructed jumps, minimal hills and small obstacles. A lot of the switchbacks I found to be extremely tight, causing me to lose a lot of momentum. I ran into a couple areas in which a tight switchback was right in front of a steep hill. Annoying but not impossible. When it gets muddy, a lot of areas get very slick. Be careful, please wear a helmet.

Review: Overall great trail for the area. Muddy in many spots. Road many different trails all over but never had to worry about deer getting off the trails multiple times like I did here.
