Review: First time out here, trails are great! It is only the second time I have ridden single track other is hodges park which I enjoyed very much as well. At stockdale I got pretty exhuasted and was not able to find a way to the trail head easily, but I made it!

Review: We rode this trail yesterday enjoying a sunny day in the 60's. The trail was fast and flowing with a great balance of climbs and downhill portions. We started on the south section [watch those handlebars between the trees on the built wood "bridge"!] and ran this through to a section on the north. However, despite the postings on Urban Trail, the ride became very muddy and we elected to turn back to avoid damaging the system. So, we rode that south section several times and had fun. Nothing too technical in here and nothing too challenging, but it was a beautiful day. I would recommend this trail to anyone looking for a mellow moderate system to run loops on. Fun!

Review: The trail was kind of Muddy and wet today with numerous branches throughout the trail blocking the way. You must be a spider lover to ride this Trail because it was filled with hundreds of webs. It seems like it would be a good trail but it needs a little maintenance. I wrote it in the afternoon and you could tell nobody has been on it in a week or two due to all the spider webs and branches down. Decent decent intermediate Trail and very flowing. I will try it when it's a little more dry out. It does have a good amount of shade and nothing too difficult for an intermediate Rider. I wrote it today with my BMC speedfox with Ibex 29 x 2.25 tires. It was a little money for the tires as the lugs did not want to let go of the mud.

Review: Fun network of trails for beginners. The "beginner's loop" turned into ruts you cant pedal in because your pedals smack, some of the obstacles are overgrown and it is exposed to the sun but all the trails in the woods are a lot of fun. You can spend as long as you want looping the network of trails in there, it is pretty and you can get goimg pretty fast. There arent many difficult sections so I would rate this as beginner, I came with my dad and gf who are beginners and they really enjoyed it. I think someone had cleaned out the spider webs with their face before we arrived lol. The loops can be a little "confusing" but since it is all connected into one bigger loop it doesnt really matter which way you go. Wont take long to learn the trails. I recommend this trail especially to beginners.

Review: This is a well constructed trail that is definitely beginner friendly. The first few miles are fairly tame, but don't let that fool you because speed kills (I clipped a tree with my shoulder going around a corner). There are a few rocky technical sections, but nothing overly difficult.

Review: Fun and Curvy Flowing singletrack! Skill loop is nice, going from basic rhythm bumps and rail road tie balance beams to harder stuff at the end. A good place to practice and the trail zips along at a nice pace.

Review: A great ride in the KC metro. Skills loop offers plenty of practice obstacles. Some technical areas with plenty of areas to get some speed.

Review: Beginners loop is great, not very difficult. Unless you hit some of their skills obstacles, They can be pretty challenging. The rest of the loop is great to take the kiddos on. As for the single track, it's good, but difficult to navigate. Lots of intersections, not well marked, a little chaotic to be honest. If you ride it all the time, it would probably be easier.
