Mountain Biking Reagan/Huffman Trails System

****   Add a review
#12 of 107 mountain bike trails in Ohio
#819 in the world

This trail is ever changing, they just recently deforested a section and are building a school. CAMBA
compensated for this by adding entirely new loops in sections of forest that are amazing for riding

Reagan itself doesn't present to many difficult challenges
Huffman is a bit more skilled

One important thing to note is that in order to get to huffman and the new loops you need to cross reagan
parkway, if you park at that skate park, follow the trail until you reach a paved path with street lamps on
it, cross reagan parkway here and follow the trail to the field and take the trail furthest to the right(the
next trail to the left is the trail to the new loops and the trial furthest to the left is that trail's outlet.) This
trail (furthest to the right) is a two way trail that connects the reagan trails to the huffman trails. Youll
have to cross the west branch of the rocky river on the same bridge as cars, take the bridge and follow the
trial into the parking lots, then follow the parking lots to the furthest one, take the gravel path and the
trail entrance and exit both connect to the gravel path(CAMBA is considering building a bridge just for the
trials to cross the river)

There really is no right or wrong way to ride these trails
you can transition from each trail rather easily

I only ask you go the direction the arrows point, there tends to be a high amount of bike traffic on these
trails in the summer.

    A lot of work has been done to this city park trail system, the Huffman trail is cleared of roots and has good flow along with wooden berms and jumps to increase the interest level. The river trail has some challenging but short downhill sections and climbs. It's a fun and challenging loop with good scenery, technical root sections, and then ends with a jump filled flow section. It's my favorite of the three. The Reagan trail is bit more challenging than River with the greatest chance of going OTB during a downhill section that ends in a creek crossing. All three trails makes for a great ride and a good workout. I'd recommend riding in the order reviewed.

    Awesome trails with great mix of climbs and downs. It would be great for visitors from out of town if they mapped a good route with the signage and start and ending point including best direction to go.

    Great trail that's fun to ride. Full of technical turns and a few jumps, as well as some pumps. Some areas have a lot of roots are n the trail and they can be tricky to navigate properly but overall I think it's a fantastic trail.

    The Huffman Trail is a nice, easy warm-up trail for intermediate riders and very suitable for beginners. The River Trail, which you enter from the opposite side of the parking lot, has some of the best features of the entire trail system. Shortly after you enter the River Trail, there's a hard right descent down to the river and the trail continues on the other side. This section of trail is more appropriate for intermediate riders as there are some steep wooden plank descents and drop-offs. To ride Reagan Trail you have to cross the road. This section has roots, rocks, and some fun plank berms. All in all, relatively flowy trail system with some climbs and some steep descents. We drove just under two hours to ride the trails and it was worth it. Will definitely return.

    Great trail with some really sick parts to it, but the flow of the trail takes away a star -- lots of tree roots.

    Fun place for sure. Decent amount of up and down depending on which trail you choose. I would park at Huffman, by the soccer fields and start with the trail by the pavilion. Good starter, a few table tops and jumps to go over. They recently added a flat fun section towards the end after the long downhill. Go across the street/river and you will go to the other Huffman section, they just added some wooden banked turns with are fun to play around with. Reagan is across the street which is longer and also fun.

    Reagan Park has come a long way since 2013. There are many new trails and obstacles. 1 to 10, Reagan was a 4, 4 1/2 in 2013: now an 8 in 2015. The technical sections of the trails are still there, but some new faster flowing trails have been added. I like speed, and was able to get some here . I had such a good time, I am going back this Saturday to crush it!

    Great place for beginner to intermediate riders, or those wanting a good aerobic workout. Not a lot of climbing. Lots of flat to rolling with many twists and turns.

    Its a lot of fun but challenging for beginner / intermediate riders. For Cleveland riders used to Royalview and Bedford, Reagan/Hoffman trails are a big step up, in my opinion. Tight technical turns, log overs, rocks, roots, short but steep climbs coming out of turns - the trails don't have great flow. They are a lot of fun though and there are no features that should scare away any level of rider.

    Reagan park gives you twisty trails to work on cornering speed. It's a great trail for beginners as well. your not going to be out of the saddle climbing very much as this trail mostly sports short hill climbs. There are 3 shorter trails that make up the whole 9 mile loop. Start with the Huffman Trail. then ride to the River Trail and next is Reagan. Reagan is a bit longer and a little tougher. There is an excellent bike shop conveniently located across from the main parking lot at The Huffman trail. It's called Edge Outdoor.

    As my first singletrack/MTB experience I really enjoyed the good amount of moderate and doable trails. Some of the quick uphills are hard on a single speed for beginners but great trails learn the sport

    Great single track and its really an asset for Medina (southwest of Cleveland).
    There are multiple trails, so park at the Huffman soccer fileds, just south of Route 3 and Fenn.
    Trails were a little slick from leaf fall and moist, though fun to ride as they flowed real well.

    The only issue was in crossing over to Reagan and just not being sure which way the trail went as there were multiple trails and some glass on the trail.

    Solid 10 miles in on this network of trails.

    New favorite for me. Did 17 miles of singletrack on last ride. Really did a great job working with what they have in the park there. Managed all the rain this summer well, less roots than royalview, much better flow than west branch.

    I have to update my review due to all the great work on this trail system. The trails still have issues, such as mediocre flow and soil that seems to go from muddy to dry and cracked overnight. Still, the trail builders have done some excellent work with mediocre terrain. All of the new technical features are a blast!
    My LBS is across the street and this is a great place to demo bikes and gear before you buy!

    The trail continues to change and improve. They recently were chased off some private property, but this gave them the opportunity to work with the parks department and build some new single track. It improved the flow. There are three sections of the trail. One section (the oldest) goes through a city park. Lots of interesting features, but also interruptions - crossing a hiking path or road. Still it's a fun ride. Across Reagan Parkway you will find the newer trail, and it is well designed. Great use of hills. Nice flow. Be careful, or you will end up in the (aptly named) Rocky River. This is very pretty wooded area. Maybe three miles or so.
    then a connector trail takes you over to the Huffman trail. This is strictly intermediate -- not advanced. Not very technical, other than one rocky section; but still a nice ride. Word of Warning: You have to ride the *wrong* way across a bridge on a road over the Rocky River on the connector trail to Huffman. It's only a couple hundred feet of road, the berm is very wide - at least 10 feet, and a traffic light nearby helps slow down the cars; but it is still very awkward. Be careful. This is a great local trail, and I'm very thankful to the city of Medina for pioneering mountain biking in NE Ohio!

    intermediate trail that is laden with rock gardens, roots and switchbacks. good trail, but i didnt particularly care for the way the trail crossed back over it self dozens of times, not really getting a good flow. Also the trail crosses parking lots, baseball fields, etc, often leading to a pause for the cause to find the other side of the trail.

    Just rode this trail for the first time recently and loved it, cant help but keep going back. Begginer and intermediate stages are pretty good although some parts lack flow. Overall a great trail though.
