    Great for trail running or biking. No serious climbs or descents. Nicely banked turns. Got a flat once off a nail in the middle of a trail, so bring a spare. Plenty of parking for 10-15 cars.

    As past reviewers mention this is a network of trails with IMBA difficulty ratings clearly marked. There have been NUMEROUS improvements and developments over the last year. The local trail organization (HMBA) and Hashers (Blooming Fools) are very active here. While not the longest routes around they offer the best places to skill up. Lots of skinnies, bridges, and a really technical rock-garden area are all recent updates. If you are just beginning there are plenty of ride-arounds, and the IMBA difficulty markings are very clear. A wonderfully MTB specific park in the middle of a college town. Can't beat it!

    Note that Interstate construction has closed some of the loops. While a bit discouraging the land managers hope to gain access to the surrounding private land. Stay tuned for future updates.

    A very nice urbanish mtb park.....or mtb maze :D. It is well marked around the easy loop and some of the intermediate loops are marked and some of it is not.

    Basically is a maze or nest of trails that is easy to get lost in and imo that is just oart of the fun.

    I found a lot of roots and rough stuff, nice flowing singletrack with some climbing and descending.

    Overall I thought it was a nice little park andwas glad I stopped in.

    A designated park for only mountain bikes is rare in the Midwest, but this one is sweet. Currently it is a little tough to follow all sections of the trail due to some work they are doing, but the trails are still fun and clear to ride. There are a couple difficult sections but the beginner trail is very fast and fun.

    Just rode this trail yesturday for the third time. great network of trails only complaint is that there are no designated trails. You see trails everywhere and it's just a free for all.

    Regardless of the trail rankings, Wapehani deserves a visit as it was Indiana's first specifically designed and dedicated Mountain Bike Park. It's not an epic ride, but a good ride on the edge of**reat bike town.

    Steep but short elevation changes in this mostly singletrack network of trail. Climbs and decents are often made more challenging by extensive roots, logs, and railroad ties protruding out of the soil. Interesting ride, can be a fitness test if ridden hard

    I love the trails and the race that was held there. However I was told that they were being turned into condos(2 yrs ago)
