Singletrack loop with little, if any, elevation gain. Mildy technical, but all levels of experience can have a great time. It can be rooty at times, but fun walking or mountain biking at speed.
We love this park. The lake is nice and paved paths are good for skateboarding and scooters when walking with the kids!
Fun trails for bikers of all skill levels. During peak times you do have to watch out for people walking the trails, as well as fellow bikers. The expert trail can get rooty at parts and has a few wooden obstacles for those looking for a bit more excitement. Beautiful pond in the center of the park with an area for weddings that is right on the water.
Soccer fields have been undergoing maintenance as of late but are a nice area to go when wanting seclusion. All in all, this has been my happy place and I will continue to go!
little bit confusing but nice trail.
Great MTB track. A little bit tough as very rooty, but excellent for training. Get assured about direction of trail as sometimes it could be challenging.
It was an easy trail to hike but very poorly marked. It was difficult to stay on course without resorting to navigation.
Easy trail, nice hike with my dog JoJo, Only thing that I didn't care for (and I'm not putting anyone down) was the narrow trail and the mountain bikers. I was constantly moving to the side to allow them access. Would be a great trail for either just bikes or just hikers.
Fairly easy and you'll probably run into someone every now and then. Great little eno spots and other places to hang out. Very safe. Good exercise for you, the kids, and the pets!
