Trail Description
About this trail
This trail does not have much in the lines of elevation changes with the exception of a few places. It's a smooth, well maintained, and wide trail. You'll often find people walking and a few others on bikes. There are a few scenic spots where you can view a small creek and a long floating bridge that crosses a lake. I typically park on East Railroad Ave and hop on the red marked trail near the park. The trail is marked out well with red squares painted on trees or posts. You'll come to a descending stairway that you can attempt to ride down or to the left side there is enough room to just ride down next to it. You'll cross a few little bridges and it's mostly smooth. Nothing technical. You'll eventually reach Smithville Rd which you cross and continue to follow onto the green marked trail. That takes you to the lake with the long bridge. On the other side of that bridge are a couple staircases. You can go right and ride a small loop for their green trail (not shown on map) or head left and follow back to Smithville Rd. Smooth riding down their yellow marked trail which leads back to the parking lot on East Railroad Ave.

I will mention that near the first descending staircase I described you'll see to the right a gazebo. If you ride in that direction and go through the gazebo, there is a singletrack that winds through the trees. Following that path will eventually lead you either back to the descending staircase or you can see another offshoot trail that heads down a hill with a couple little whips at the bottom. Nothing difficult. It's a nice little place to do laps for beginner fitness. Carrying the bike up and down the staircases adds to the cardio aspect. This trail system is definitely for beginners.

Review: This trail system is rather small but well maintained. There are not really any technical aspects. A couple little bridges and small hills. Where the trail shines is that it's a nice little loop that you can get a bit of a cardio workout in under the shade of the forest. There are a few scenic spots as well. You'll come across plenty of people walking (either with or without pet) but the trail is wide enough to encompass all. There are a few sections of singletrack if you want to leave the main trail but it mostly consists of a path winding through the trees. Still mostly flat with a few roots here and there.
