Trail Description
About this trail
Swanson Park serves up about 6 miles of flowing singletrack with a little something for everyone. Numerous ramped log crossings, mini-jumps, dips, and gravity cavities await you here. The trails are not overly technical, and there is no serious climbing to be had here, but it is fun nonetheless.

The recommended route is to start at the trailhead and follow the singletrack adjacent to the playground into the woods. As soon as you hit the woods there is an immediate left you want to take. Take the left and climb into the woods. From here on out the route is fairly well marked (look for signs attached to trees) and you won't have to think about where the trail goes until you finally cross the Fire Department access road. Cross the road and take the uphill section to your left. Once again, as soon as you take this left, the trail does the scouting work for you.

Review: Great trail and it is well mantained. Only issue is that there are no maps. I went in and got lost easily. Spent more time trying to get out than I did enjoying it

Review: Used to be better. Lots of tree roots, re-routes done often. Not mowed often enough, grass can get pretty tall. Widely used by locals. Downed trees become a jump rather than removed. Could be confusing in parts as signage is lacking.

Review: great trail, been a while since I've done any real biking. not too hard, but there are some parts along the way that lead to more advanced jumps or hills

Review: Coming from a relative beginner, I love this trail. Not a lot of climbing, and the main trail is not super technical, though there are off-shoots with some jumps, table-tops, etc, if you are up for those! Maybe I will be someday! I will definitely be riding this one again. It appears well-maintained, and provides a nice forest atmosphere, while still being fairly easy to follow. (There were a few intersections in the trail where I got lost, but found myself again.)

Review: Love the trail, just have a hard time knowing what way to go. There are tons of off shoots that loop you back around. Need to ride it with someone that knows the trails to make sure you don't end up going backwards on accident

Review: Beginner to intermediate narrow ST trail. There are a few bigger advanced features thrown in there to keep things really interesting, if you want to give them a try, but you can avoid those if you want. it is moderately fast, flowy if you pedal it hard. Most of the curves do not kill all your speed unnecessarily, so that keeps the trail fun. Well maintained. Not as demanding as Jewel, and the two together make for a nice little outing. Or just do two or three laps on Swanson. Nice job THOR.

Review: very fun trail to ride. it is very well taken care of, but I only wish it was marked a bit better. It's easy to get turned around at some points. I rode 2 laps and it seemed line I still missed some parts. 90 % of it is tree covered so it's good to ride at any time even when it's hot.

Review: It's a fun challenging intermediate trails. It has many trees roots and steps but we MTB can handle it. The climbing uphill trails are nice steady, not steep which I like it. It's place I'd go back there again.

Review: short ride not too technical and this trail is starting to become overgrown by nettles and poison ivy!
