Trail Description
About this trail
Park in the open field across from the park entrance. This trail offers a good section of technical trails. Some areas have a rocky terrain that will remind you of biking in the mountains. Trails range from fast curvy greens to a short intense, true black diamond. Many good climbs and descents with a few steep drops. Now the new pump track and the East side is open with miles of 2 track. It is well worth the visit.

Review: More rocks than most trails in the area which adds some variety. Recent additions add some more difficult and fun sections such as "black hole".

Review: Very nice, well maintained Midwest MTB riding. Jumping on the North Loop just past the check in coyisk (pu a map) the trail starts out playing with the steep sides of the river valley, and proceeds around riding well as one big loop or bypass whole sections on the "Double Stuff". the Black Hole was the only side loop that I didn't find naturally just following the signs, but not hard to find. I found signage to be very good, and the trails connected together well. there are distinct flavors, ranging from natural hill sides to the long tailing piles of the five fingers, and edge of the world. worth exploring. Glad I wore pads, there're defiantly abundant rock.

Review: This area was formerly a quarry and it shows. Rocks everywhere! Not what you would expect in the middle of Illinois. There are also a lot of ups and downs and plenty of tailing ponds you don't want to fall in to. This is probably the best trail system in the Peoria area, if not all of northern Illinois.

Review: I rode this trail network a day after 3 solid days of rain so it was pretty messy. Overall a GREAT ride. There are basically 2 loops, North and South, each loop almost 4 miles each. I liked the North loop most of all and rode it 2x. The signage is "decent" at best. A few times I found myself on spider trails off the main loop (esp North loop) without even knowing it, but they always connected back into the main loop. I'm no expert rider by any means but I did find the few black trails a challenge but very fun. I only came off my bike once at a small creek washout. Both loops offer some good up and downs, rocks, roots and some sections of technical riding. I think most riders will like this trail system and leave with a smile on their face. The main loops are usually 3-4 feet wide and the spider trails ranged from 2-3 feet. Cost is now $8.00 (day pass) to use the trail system across the street from the actual state park. I added 11 new pics as well.

Review: Rode this trail last year in the Xterra race. Clean trail, good up and downs. Good mix of rock, dirt, and tree.

Review: Great network of trails. something for everyone. I had to check twice to make sure I was still in Illinois. Impressive mountain and technical trails. Parking is $5. for the day.

Review: A great new addition to Peoria trails. PAMBA has done a great job and continues to expand the trail.
