    Reviewing OH DEER! Loop:

    When you are trying to find the trail head across the grassy area, and follow the tree line on your right. The trailhead is at the end of that tree line. Can be tricky to find the first time there. First off, I want to say this is probably not worth driving hours for. It ends up being about 1.5 miles with the Foxtrot trail included. I love riding this trail before or after work, when I don't have time to travel for a longer mtb trail. Also, don't be fooled by the length. This section of trail has caused me more injuries and falls than any other trail. It's skinny and technical, it has made me a far better rider! Thank you to Fox Valley Mountain Bikers for maintaining this wonderful trail.

    Foxtrot is a good trail for beginning riding. Well maintained, but short. It contrasts well with the Oh Deer trail that is in the same park. My son and I loop the 2 trails together, and it ends up being about 1.5 miles.

    I'm prefacing this review by saying I rode the trails at dusk on a fat tire with very little single track experience.

    OH DEER! Freaked me out. I was not confident on the trail and did not handle some of the turns, descents or obstacles very well.

    I ran through it once and afterwards discovered I had bent the rear derailleur making biking difficult with a jumping chain.

    I have not been back, but I have ridden some other intermediate to difficult trails and feel another run will be in order in the future.

    Pretty short trail but cool place to hit up for a "after work" quick ride!

    Super fun urban ride. Trailhead is a little tricky to notice, but there's probably someone around to point it out if you don't see it. Fast, fun features. After the switchbacks, you can get enough speed to not have to climb much at all. Quick loop, but super fun to do a half-dozen time. Can combine with a beginner loop to add distance and variety.

    only about half a mile long, Fox Trot is a cool, fast loop. perfect for introducing young or old to the sport, it's fun, good flow, some twists, and easy to lap, but only a couple min per. just across the lawn from OH DEER!

    Oh Deer! is really fun. much better than expected. It's tight and requires some precise handling and occasionally gets some flow going. Alas it's over in a few minutes, but still fun to session through several times. clearly not worth a long drive, but if passing near, a worthy stop. Fox valley did a good thing with this land. don't miss Fox Trot across pathway to south.

    The bridge has been repaired. Great job to the Fox Valley Mountain Bike club. They just recently cut the brush back as well.

    Very interesting, local trail. Half of it is very tame and a great trail for beginners. The other side of the paved trail has a single track that is pretty technical and advanced. I would not recommend that beginners do the other half, as it is fairly tough.

    Awesome trail for around here. Only about a mile long but it will definitely keep you on your toes with the burms and bridges. We rode when it was muddy which increased the risk but it was still a blast!
