Trail Description
About this trail
Only about 10 minutes from Fairborn and Dayton and Wright-Patterson AFB. There is enough parking for at least 30 vehicles. They now rent bikes on Saturday's in the summer months. Bathroom facilities were upgraded significantly with 2 permanent vault toilets/changing area, drinking fountain, and a bike wash station outside. The water is available seasonally April-October. Here is the official ,page This park actually consists of several different trails from beginner to expert/advanced with various lengths ranging from about 1/2 miles to about 2 1/2 miles. There are over 9 miles of trails total and they may be ridden both ways. These are all mountain-bike only trails: no joggers, runners, hikers, or motor vehicles allowed. No pets allowed to be walked on trail either. Most of the trails are in the forest with lots of turns, twists, humps, and (mostly) minor climbs. The routes are EXTREMELY well marked and easy to follow. There is a trail guide at the beginning and at Five points Junction (where 5 of the trails cross) and Wild West Junction (usually a good turn around spot for beginner-intermediate riders) however, you will probably want to make sure to bring a printed trail guide. EMS points are also available if an accident should occur, but I did not see a phone or alarm so make sure to bring your cell phone (coverage should be decent - there is a cell tower not 2 miles away.) The low areas crossing small creeks have been pretty well laid with stones. The trails are mostly stone and rock free (just compacted dirt) except for the Advanced Trails: Hawk's Lair and The Talon. There is now a big difference in difficulty between the newly added beginner Tot Track just off the parking lot, beginner Hilltop Flow trail behind the restrooms, and Twisted, onto intermediate trails: Mr. ZigZap, Upper Stealth, Lower Stealth, and Creekside Trails. Hawk's Lair (Advanced) proved to be a huge jump in difficulty. Serious bikers would probably not have much trouble at all. The Talon is an advanced section in Hawk's, you cannot accidentally get to this section of trail. There are caution signs. All trails have turns with a few narrow spots between trees. There are great wooden bridges for the lower-swampy areas. You have to ride through some of the courses to reach others. Note: There is now a course for young children (tiny tots and teens that opened last year!). Overall, it is a very well done mountain bike only facility. Here's a map link:

Review: MoMBA is great. Good flowing sections & lots of areas to improve your technique. Probably not going to excite a budding professional, but perfect for a weekend warrior or causal enthusiast. It's a great place to go and get into the sport. In the summer the bike rentals on Saturday 10-1pm are great way to get started at $6 /hr!

Review: MoMBA was great. Different trails for everyone. I started with the easy ones, worked up to the intermediate ones, and quit because the temp was 90s and I "burned out", literally. But, great ups & downs, twists & turns, and a great work with lots of fun.

Review: Rode here 3 Days ago. Went with 3 riders and had a blast. One noob who did excellent and kept up. Creekside is always a sweet cruise if you go the right direction. Stay to the Left and go clockwise. Had a blast riding Hilltop two times and dropped into Twister to Mr Zig Zag. Always a great ride and fun for all. Mind the walnuts and monkey brains.

Review: Great place. Something for everyone. Some easy trails, medium trails, hard trails, rythum sections, and jumps. Well maintained and they have a bike wash and repair stand. Takes rain well. Nothing bad to say about this place.

Review: This is the easiest accessible dedicated single track in the dayton area, one of the best marked, and well maintained parks I've been to. I wish there were a little tougher trails as most can just be idly ridden through, but it's still one of the best trail systems in the surrounding area. The dedicated mountain bike area with no foot traffic is a big plus to see in Ohio. Anybody up for a ride?

Review: Here is a link to the best trail map I could find online for those who may be new to the trails. Very good map. And here is link briefly describing each trail. Kudos to Five Rivers Metro and its volunteers. They do a great job across the Miami Valley region for all users, not just mountain bikers.

Review: By far one of the best tracks I've ever ridden, especially as a novice rider. Visiting nearby for a work trip and brought my bike along, and I'm sure glad I did. The trail had exceptional signage, plus some trail maps to take with you, but not necessarily needed because of how well marked it is. Great, easy, green trail to get the blood flowing which includes a couple of small obstacles (small logs and rock bed sections). There's an opt out trail too if you want to skip the obstacles. The Hill trail brings you right into the main junction, and you're off! Each section is pretty short (0.5-1.2 mi), so you have many opportunities to take a break at the main junction of needed or keep riding. Not too rooty, most of the trail was narrow though. Small sections of bridges, which were well kept, wide, easy to transition into. Only small drawback is the track is bidirectional. So even though it's narrow, I had to proceed around each blind corner w caution for opposing traffic. Bathrooms are brand spankin new, plus includes a water fountain, tools, and hose to rinse your bike off. Highly recommended, I even spotted a wild rabbit (that I almost ran over) and a deer!

Review: Fun trails, good progression, pretty landscape. These are some of the best marked trails I've ever experienced. Creekside loop is a gem.

Review: Great fun. Took my wife and she loved it. We will be going back soon. Only issue is all the trails cross each other and go both ways. Just a little confusing but VERY well taken care of. Will be going back....
