Trail Description
About this trail
This is a singletrack network of trails at an old military station. It has some technical hills and nice switchbacks heading down to the Ohio River. You need to make some loops and doubleback alot to get any good distance, though.

Review: If your looking for some gnar in the Cincy area then Tower Park is the place to be. Fall line trails with plenty of rocks, roots and erosion make for a very techy trail. Not as difficult at Schooner over at Brown County but def the trickiest stuff in the area. Only about 4-5miles of trail but feels longer due to the difficulty. Tower is a good place to come work on skills, just pick a seciton and go for it.

Review: This is a harder mix of trails than most around Cincinnati. The first time I went to Tower Park, I missed most of the trails (there is a good entrance near the tennis courts).

Some have complained of the difficulty here, and it is hard, but manageable if you've been doing your hill workouts! It's not the best in the Tri-State region, but it is close to home and fun to ride after work for a little while.

Similar Trail: Not sure.

Review: Trail is so overgrown and poorly maintained. Too many roots and fallen trees-barely ridable. Trail is beautiful though, I wish CORA would step in and clean it up. Could be an awesome trail with some work.

Review: These trails are sweet in all directions and fun if you have a high level of fitness and can maintain a line under load while taking a few hits from rocks and roots you thought you defeated. After getting worked over by Tower everywhere else will be like riding on a sidewalk.

Review: My son and I tried the trail. I know it is labeled advanced on this site, but there is no indication of that at Tower Park. The trail is very rough and to difficult for most bikers.

Review: Kind of a dilemma with this one. On one hand, these trails are a great workout for any level of rider. On the other hand, they have absolutely no flow to them whatsoever. They are extremely steep, and it is hard to have a good downhill run when the trail turns off at the bottom. They will test your endurance, balance, breaking, and shifting skills. I was just out of my element on a black diamond trail on Raccoon Mountain in Tennessee a month ago, and had way more fun there. If you want an intense after work workout or want to work on technical skills or keeping your rpms up, and this trail is fairly close, than this is great. If your are looking for some fun singletrack, go up the road to England-Idlewood.

Review: The most technical trail in Cincinnati. Has all the climbing you could ever want with awesome views to go along with it. Would not recommend any beginner riders to try and tackle this trail. Has a couple very steep DH sections and also some switchbacks that keep you on your toes. You can ride all day, you just have to know the different trails and how to connect them all, I recommend the Devils Backbone if you like gnarly rocks sticking out of the ground with a steep flat rock at the end. These trails dry out faster than any other local trail, thus preventing damage due to negligent riders which I see constantly at East Fork.

Similar Trail: CORA is too scared to build a trail to compete with this.
