I found the trails easy with little technical challenge. The trails are not well marked with trail signs. Quality, Mushroom and Close to the Edge were the best trails we rode. Close to the Edge seems to be an out back. Great spot for a novice or intermediate rider. No trail features (log rides, jumps, drops etc.).Thank |
Check out a video or our ride to get a sense of the trails.
Great medium-technical trail network. I'd avoid the western side of the Jockey Hill dirt road section during hunting season though (or maybe avoid Jockey altogether during hunting season?). I was biking in the Jockey Hill network fall of last year and ran in to some unhappy hunters. Not sure why there is hunting there at all since it is a forest preserve.Thank |
Although I didn't have time to do much riding, I did find a nice combination of easy ST/ wide easy trail, and a lot of sweet ST with some nice technical sections.Thank |
Great singletrack for the area.Best riding for anyone within an hours drive!Thank |
