    Great Trails. Lots of variety, ranging from kids to intermediate. I like the shorter trails branching off the connector so you can ride what suits you. Only negatives are 1. map is not very clear, and you are likely to get lost for awhile. 2. Trail tends to not handle water the best. 3. Could use a more advanced trail.
    All minor items, and I really enjoy this trail. Not to mention its free!

    It was finally dry enough for me to ride the trails on the west side and I was not disappointed! Somehow they managed to make fun flowy trails that feel like you do way more downhill than uphill, which makes for several fun laps around this smaller but well maintained trail system. Kudos to the volunteers, I hope to join for a work day soon. I haven't ridden the easy trails but the intermediate and expert trails weren't to challenging so it is safe to say there is something here for every level of riding. I really liked the sections with offset hip jumps, allowing for major flow and creativity.

    Added bonus, they have a hotline you can call for trail conditions. 2 six 2 eight 5 seven 1 eight 7 six

    Great trail. This is where I taught my 11 year old son how to ride. The one way system makes for a predictable safe ride. The trail is constantly maintained great spot.

    Great trail system. After riding here you can tell that someone has put a considerable amount of time into building these. Great single track trailer throughout the park with great elevation gain including logs rollers and some good climbs. This is the first time I've ridden these trailer, but are definitely one of if not my favorite trail system in this area. Highly recommend visiting this park. Its worth the trip.

    I love Silver Lake Park. The variety of mountain bike trails provides something for everyone. My favorite is Little Wing, which is also the longest. Some tricky bits included in this moderate trail include a fallen tree and a large whoop-de-do, both of which can be bypassed. Easier trails like the Pines (smells like Christmas) and Snowflake provide a nice change of pace between the challenges of Barbed Wire and the Highline. A whole lot of great riding in a small park.

    these trails will be closing the gap on best WI trails award. Seems like they are putting in massive amounts of work to these, with great results. There is something here for everyone. Flow seemed to be on the minds of the builders.

    I was pleasantly surprised when I rode this trail system. I approached it like any other trail, but I soon learned it was something special. The loops are all enjoyable, but the advanced sections are even better! Steep, sharp, short, switchbacky climbs give way to blasting descents filled with berms, drops, and jumps. You will quickly find yourself gleefully grinning here, as it is really a joy to ride. My only "negative" is that on Snowflake there is a section in which entire plants love to stick to your clothing.

    I really enjoyed these trails. I was hoping to do all of them, but ran out of time. Only did 4.5 miles.

    The only thing to disappoint was The Gravel Pit Trail. Looks like it's barely ridden, OR it's brand new under construction. Got out to one point and completely lost trail. Very overgrown so I had to backtrack. Not that big of a deal but, if it's under construction, close the trail. Oh and one more minor complaint, all the little tree stumps in the trail. Would be nice to get rid of those. I know it adds a bit of technicality, but it also adds a higher risk of pinch flatting or being thrown out of control.

    I loved, however, the climbs and descents. The climbs were short and steep and the downhills had enough flow to make things interesting.

    I agree with another user, if I was around the area, I would ride often! However, being an hour away, I won't be back much.

    Good job on the trails!!!

    An enjoyable ride on new trails. I made the 50 minute drive to check out these trails. They didn't disappoint, though I also won't be back frequently, as there was nothing outstanding about them for the length of drive. We are spoiled in SE WI with options, and because of that, I'd opt for closer, longer, trails. I would definitely ride them more frequently if they were closer & recommend them to others in that area. Little Wing was my favorite section. I think most beginners could handle these trails - they would be a good place to develop skills.

    A HIDDEN GEM that everyone needs to try!

    In the winter, it's a well-groomed trail for FATBIKES to enjoy.

    The barbed wire trail starts at parking area four. Follow the gravel driveway back towards two utility buildings. Continue to the right, the gravel road will turn into mulch. Barbwire trail is marked immediately to the left. feels more like a primitive walking paths than a mountain bike single track. Some tight turns, couple of good drops to get some speed. Could still use some work, such as berms and jumps. Glad I was able to find it.
