Trail Description
About this trail
The main loop (Red Cedar Loop) begins and ends at Pavilion I located at the park's entrance. It is approximately one mile long. Take a left at the first intersection for either the Bluebird or White Oak loops, which are longer in length. The trail-tread is smooth and fully benched. The dominant them is tight, twisting lines combined with short climbs and descents. Loop options connect all three of the park's pavilions and the amphitheater. The White Oak Loop is the largest of the three loops and is still under construction. When completed, the park should contain approximately eight miles of trail. Signs should be installed by the end of 2007. Other users include hikers and trail runners. Motorized vehicles and equestrians are strictly prohibited on the trails.

Review: About a year ago I started riding this trail every wknd and I can say it WAS great but, since last year they have stopped taking care of most of the outer trails and it is just hell to try and ride them without falling off a cliff because of the many exposed roots and it overall not being taken care of.

Review: I'm a total noob and I just rode the red loop. It was a well taken care of trail and wasn't too technical for me. There were a few tree roots that gave me some issues but other than that, nice trail. Not too many climbs and the ones that were there were short.

Review: This track is fairly technical in parts. Mostly windy trails with plenty of hills to climb. The pump track is a lot of fun and is constantly being upgraded. My whole family rides by my wife and daughter find it too difficult while my son and I really enjoy it.

Review: Fun place to ride. Trails arent marked well so you have to explore a bit to learn the best routes for biking. A great place to go for a nice ride and there's some good climbs and switchbacks. Just watch for hikers because there are many, especially on weekends.

Review: Lots of options to ride. Not all trails are well marked but you won't get lost. There are some fun fast rolling hills and a few technical areas with roots, rocks and creeks to cross. Well maintained and really easy to get to right off of I24. Go and spend a couple hours having fun! Also a great paved and gravel trail if you're gonna take the little ones.

Review: Nice track if they can keep the kids from destroying the course. It makes it a danger to riders. Good place to ride but be careful

Review: I've been riding Rotary for two years, it's 20 minutes from my house, and every other trail (currently open) in the area is over an hour away. So, how's Rotary stack up?



The good: There's a little of everything. Some decent climbs for this area, some decent descents, the trails are mostly rooty, which adds some technicality, but on the whole, these trails should be ridable by beginners as long as they have a reasonable amount of fitness. Certainly there are places a new rider should avoid - the Amphitheater for instance.



The Bad: Some of the trails can hold a little water because of where the ground flattens out around the creek. Occasionally some of the trails can be a little sketchy, a few places some of them weren't benched adequately, and you get some real off camber fun, that gets hairy when loose rock accumulates.



The Ugly: Signage really isn't good enough. There are some new painted hash marks on the trees, but you still might not be able to follow these unless you have some idea where you're trying to go to start with.



Full Disclosure - I'm in the COGS Cycling club, which is where COGS MTB comes from. We reworked a lot of the structures in the amphitheater, rerouted a bit of trail at the top of the park that went outside of the park onto private land that was logged, and we are working on some other sustainability and overall fun improvements. Unfortunately it's a slow process, as there are a lot of projects taking place in the park being run by the county. We have to get authorization from them to do any real changes. More than once, projects we have worked on have been destroyed or broken as one other person mentioned, which I would be willing to bet comes back to a political struggle that predates my involvement, the basics of which are that equestrians claim to have built all of the trail in the park, and have since been disallowed from the park, which they blame on mountain bikers. I wasn't there, I don't know, but I think a lot of the trail destruction that takes place here is backlash from that.
