    This is a fun trail. I am very new to the sport, so this was great for me to practice bike control, speed and breaking.
    Don't use the "Get Directions - Map it" tool from this site. It takes you to the Cherry Creek Dog Park and horse trail. Use GoogleMaps to search for Village Green Park, which is about 15 minutes away from the dog park.

    Village Greenwood has just the right amount of downtown Singletracks. Plenty of trails and difficulty levels for all levels of riders. There are plenty of features to keep the ride interesting. The single best part is the intermingled trails each on is only 5-7 minutes meaning you can ride for as short or as long as you like.

    I really enjoyed this as a practice trail that allows me to enjoy several types of obstacles and situations all on a very short loop. THE BIG ISSUE is not with the trail but the map here. If you follow the map here it will take you to the wrong location. Instead look for Village Green Park by the golf course along dam road. The location this map takes you costs $12 and is also a horse path.

    A great skill building course and place to get Ina quick fix when there is no time to get up to the hills.

    Awesome little trail system. Theres a little bit for just about everyone. The trail rating is clear as to whether you're entering a green section, blue section, or black section. Make sure to stay off frisbee golf course though.

    This is a great quick ride. A visit every other day will keep you tuned in. There's a lot of small stuff that would be a typical example of backyard obstacles. But there's a few good hills to get you pumping, and some neat downhill areas, however, some of the track layout is a little awkward. Like, log obstacles in the middle of a climb, drops that are set up backwards, really sweet downhill sections that are supposed to be uphill only. This is easily remedied by just taking what routes you want and ignoring the direction signs, just be aware of other riders, there's enough turns to get taken by surprise. I will be here often though.

    Great place to up your confidence on technical terrain. Definitely not a substitute for a real front range trail but it's a nice place to practice if you don't have the time for a long ride. The layout definitely reminds me of Valmont Bike Park in Boulder (minus the big jumps and wallrides).

    Village greens park is a great place to go If your looking to improve your skills, or get a nice ride in if your strapped for time. There's plenty of free parking right at the trailhead, and the park features multiple lines you can choose depending on your skill level. On top of that, they have added man made trail features that you can also stop and practice on as well. I personally like the variety of the trail, and it's proximity to town. The trail itself is singletrack, with a couple of punchy climbs/switchbacks you can test your lungs on. A full loop of the park will cover about 1.5-2.0 miles depending on route selection, but you can do hot laps on the course if your looking to get the legs going. Overall I would recommend the park for beginners and experts alike, not only because of the amount of variety you have in such a compact area, but also because it's a great go to spot right In town.

    I went here after reading the reviews saying this was a good trail. I would say I'm an intermidiate rider but I found this track to be way too easy with nearly no fun obstacles which take apsolutely no skill. Very boring riding, no scenery and just not very fun at all.

    Great ride for spring warm up sessions or a quick ride after work. Has a little bit of everything, but you can still bypass things you're not comfortable with. I don't know where the avg time comes from as i can ride there, ride it, and back in just over an hour (extra 10 mi in commute).

    When it comes to mtb parks, this place is great! It has a little bit of everything you find on a typical Colorado trail. It's way more than just jumps and pump tracks you find at other mtb parks. Great place to hone your skills in the early season or just starting out. Watch out for goat head thorns in the summer time as all of Cherry Creek Reservoir area gets them.
