It is a 10 mile loop trail.
All of the largest impassable trees have been cut and cleared as of yesterday. There's also been some trimming of hangers and grabbers on a fair amount of trails. Kudos to the staff and volunteers. With the lack of rain the trail is 98% dry and riding well.
Several large trees down again - at least one is impassable. The quicker sections are getting hard packed - nice for some faster runs. A good number of stream crossings could use some clean out. People keep putting debris there to do who knows what. Either fill more debris in to bridge or don't fill it with random crash bait. Stray branches or thorn grabbers need cut. Maybe a work day is in need.
Fun trail to hike, took a lot of ads as my kids and 65 year old father went with me. Had a great time very scenic. if it rains trail will be very sloppy. POISON IVY is everywhere. Trail is marked every half mile for the 9 mile length of trail. Did I mention the poison ivy?
A fun loop in either direction - maybe more fun clockwise. Take note of the day based directional signage:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday - Counter Clockwise
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday - Clockwise (Traditional)
- Very rooted in some parts
- Handful of man-made mini features (berm, log jumps, balance bridges/logs, teeter totter, creek bridges) some maintained better than others.
- Muddy after rain as mentioned
- 2-3 VERY large trees down in the trail
- Poison Ivy in ABUNDANCE
Not a good ride today. Trail is trashed. Mud pits everywhere.
fantastic MTB trail. Mostly flat with some fun ups and downs near the 3/4 way mark. Going to do this trail every year.
This was a nice place to MTB. Good miles and some technical terrain to! Awesome time!
This is a 10 mile loop broken in to 4 sections. Avoid in wet condition it gets a little slippery. The trail flows real well and has some cool obstacles. Fall is the best season to ride the trail. Plan for a full day of fun
My husband and I have hiked parts of the well-marked trail. It does get quite sloppy and muddy but not impassible. It is a nice walk through the woods.
Findley State Park MTB trail is a 9+ mile loop trail around Findley Lake. First, a
word of advice - Avoid this trail in wet weather. Trail turns into a greasy, sticky singletrack mess when wet. With that said, this is a must ride in central
Ohio for mountainbikers. Over 9 miles of very well maintained singletrack with
great flow and some neat obstracles. The portion east of the lake I enjoyed a lot. Can't wait to ride Findley again!
Great for trail running - even though its a mtn bike trail. 9 mile trail - many short hills (rollers), but none long or steep. Lots of turns. Does not drain well in some areas.
