Review: This is my backyard trail so I ride here all the time. It stays wet a long time after a rain. It's a great place for a beginner rider. Very flat trail but it's fun to rip around. A good amount of features for the size.

Review: The trail is nice for being in the city, but it could use work. There are a few fun features, but it is hard to keep speed. The trail consists of flat turn after flat turn.

Similar Trail: Lakeshore park

Review: This is a nice, flowing, easy to intermediate trail. Great for winter rides. Just finished a ride there today. Trail is in very good shape thanks to the folks at CRAMBA. It is just 5 minutes from my house so I am definitely a bit biased.

Review: They recently added a new red trail, adding ~ 1.25 miles from the main loop. They've also added some elements to the main loop earlier in the year. Fairly easy trail, nice to have close to home

Review: Well, what can you say. Nice place to crank one out or take the grandkid which is what I did this day. I miss the easy coast. Sorry it's just not very challenging

Review: Just rode this trail on 06/07/2018. First time riding this trail and I had a good time. Definitely a nice trail for any new rider trying to become more comfortable on the singletrack. There are a few features that can be avoided if your not ready to tackle them and a pretty fun roller section towards the end of the trail. Also, you'll be happy to know that these trails are very well marked and it is difficult to get lost. My only real con would be that there are a lot of flat sections and not too many downhill sections. So be prepared to be constantly peddling most of the time. Still fun, and I will definitely be returning.

Review: Easy trails, great for winter riding and is one of the few that is groomed for it. I have been here a few times and still seem to miss my turns and get lost or off track.

Review: Great trail with a little bit of everything. Minimal climbs, not too technical, well marked trails.

Review: Did parts of this trail and it was really well groomed and fun. Not very technical but is still challenging/too much for someone new on a mtb outside of the green loop. The directions to get to the trail head are wrong as well, you need to enter the park somewhere at the north end of the trail.

Review: Went this yesterday (June 3rd) and rode the yellow loop. Was a great ride with very minimal mud. Only place I really encountered muddiness was between markers 13 and 14. The trails are great with some jumps, log piles, obstacles and downhills. The climbs are pretty minimal, so the trail overall was pretty fast. I came across several groups of deer hanging out near the trails, which was pretty cool to see. I rode right past one group before they even realized I was there (that or they are just used to it and weren't frightened). This will be my go to during the summer since it's so close by.
