Good technical trail with lots of short hills and tree roots.

    Terrible, waste of my time that I will never get back. Not maintained at all.

    A few miles of trail in a local park. It is nothing special that I would purposely travel to, but I would love to have this in my neighborhood.

    Poorly maintained, often overgrown areas that make things unnecessarily difficult, no trail or directional markings whatsoever. With some work this place could be fun, and it certainly has some fun obstacles and challenges, but there are far better places not far from here

    Well this is my home trail.l, I have been riding it sense I was little. So this trail used to be bigger a few years ago till they leveled part of it out for a solar field. That's about the time the trail became uncared for. The trails used to be marked and maintained really nice. Now it's half way taken care of by the city. I will express a word of caution to any new riders. Walk or ride it slowly first time threw, take note of problem areas. You have to watch for fallen trees or branches long the trail. Also getting in to the back trails on the other side of the creek there's metal sticking out of the ground off the trail. This can be hazardous if you have a bad crash. I'm living a 3 stars because I know what it used to be and all the years of enjoyment I have gotten from the trails. Now present day I hardly go to it, overall though still a fun trail that has a lot of potential. If we can get more riders then maybe we can get it improved.

    Address on site is wrong the trail is a little farther south on the opposite side of the road the address on the site takes it to a subdivision don't give up it's a nice hole place with baseball fields and football field and the trails are nice and in the back behind the baseball field I heard they are for miles.I haven't written it yet I just found it today and walked it it looks like it's hilly and interesting and tree covered

    I really enjoyed this trail, Well maintained. Lots of little ups and downs. Only complaint is there are no trail markings.

    Fun trail, made difficult when wet. Seems decently maintained, although some of the flat trails seemed to be washed out into a slanted trail in some parts making biking difficult. It was a lot of fun though. My only serious criticism is that the trails are not marked at all. Thank goodness I had a GPS track back feature to find my way out. They need to put up signs for switch backs an general directions.

    Well kept trail along up and down river gully. Well designed use of hills. Solid Bridges and obstacles/log trail/teeter totter. If the trail could be improved in any way I would suggest a map at the trailhead. Aprox 1 - 1.5 hr to complete trail.

    Not well marked or maintained. Has some nice features. This trail has the potential to be a lot better than it currently is.

    Rode Oakwood today. It was still quite muddy in spots, but it is starting to dry out. There were several large trees down on the trail from the recent storms. There is definitely some chainsaw work to be done.

    Overall, the trail is quite fun for what the builders had to work with. There is pretty good flow in places, lots of roots, short techy ups and short fun downs.

    I ran the trail today. It was too wet to ride. It looks like an interesting and fun trail in some ways. I read some discrepancy in the reviews about the length. Much of the additional trail is located on the the other side of the creek from the ball fields. The additional trail can be accessed via a bridge just after the trails turn to the north. It is the off cambered bridge shown in the first photo for the trail. I agree with Roadwarrior. There is probably 5 miles of trail here.

    Very nice trail for a city park. Outer loop follows creek and then travels through the spoils from industrial, and ball field construction. Some off camber, short steep, roots, one teeter-totter, dozens of bridges. Many connector trails cross the loop. Probably 5-6 miles total trail.

    Amazing singletrack now that the bridges are fixed. A lot bigger than it looks.

    The small amout of the trail we stumbled across was nice. Need signs or something to mark out the trail. Heard there was about 6 miles of trail found about 1.5.

    This trail is probably the best in Northwest Ohio. Safer than Jermain Park(Toledo), more variety, and probably dryer than Van Buren. Has a lot of good bridges, and a few obstacles. I even caught a little air on a downhill, the first time out on the trail! Great place to ride in the MTB lacking plains of the black swamp.

    While it is but a couple miles of mixed single and double track, kinda criss crossed and scraggly, it does have some nice bridges and quick steep climbs, and is a nice quiet place in small town middle of no where. Certainly better then no trail at all.
