Review: Mostly beginner to intermediate trail. But some short very steep climbs and descents. Some steep exposure on Feel The Bern. And a couple of sections along the creek are very close to the drop from erosion of the creek bank. They seem to be surveying the park. One trail section is closed and marked as private property. Not well maintained and could really use a trim.

Review: Very short loop of trails, but has it's challenges nonetheless. Trails are now marked. Creek Edge is by far the best trail as it's packed down and offers a cool view along the creek. Most other trails are very loamy and soft, so not very fast. There are some near impossible descents and climbs as the trail has too many downed trees and branches. With a little TLC, this could be a great little gem near downtown Eau Claire.

Review: Not a bad trail setup. Some difficult climbs as the dirt is fairly soft, but the Creek Edge trail is fairly fast and fun with a pretty cool view of Otter Creek. Not maintained very well, but I don't think it sees a lot of traffic either.

Review: Love these trails! A few of the original trails are now closed off, but the remaining single track has nice flow and challenging sections. Trail needs a little TLC and more riders!

Review: This is a very nice quick ride. It is very sandy, so be careful!

Review: Lots and lots of Sand, and loose Loam. This place was a lot of fun, but Definitely favors the Fat Bike. There's a short loop W of the Entrance by the pond. CCW it climbs the hill on very loose (current dry conditions) loam, don't think it can be done without Fats. On Creek side, lots of sand pits, but a couple double as berm turns, so hit hard and rail it. The whole Place is a tight network so once you get the lay of the land you can session around drifting from trail to trail as you like. Place is a little over shadowed by Lowes Creek just down the road, but worth visiting. Y'all be careful in the low ground Sand.

Review: Much of the trail has a nice flow to it. There was not any signage last time I was there. Very convenient being right in between Eau Claire and Altoona. Some sandy areas you have to be careful of. There are a couple difficult areas. Great for a quick after-work ride.

Review: some of the trails are super fast and flowy, while others are almost impossible, and make you keep trying and trying until you clear it (freefall) the trails do tend to be on the sandy side, and fatbikes are right at home.
