Definitely a challenging trail for the beginner. Lots of inclines and declines. Not for the faint of heart at all. Very wooded trail and you will see wildlife.
Wear your helmet as the park states. There are some hills and parts where a slip could find you tumbling down a hill into a tree or the large rocks that dot that trail. I did not think it was particularly easy at all. However, after just riding on sidewalks and asphalt it was time for a change.
If this trail is classified as easy I need more practice. I am going to continue to hit this trail though until I can ride through without walking up or down any of the hills.
Truly a great aerobic workout. Great to find something like this in Toledo!
The Toledo Metroparks in general are amazing, but Wildwood is probably my favorite. I grew up in Toledo, and my family spent many years going to Wildwood and spending time outside and walking the trails. The boardwalk trails are very cool, and the stream views are gorgeous. It's very quiet, and you totally forget that you're right in the heart of Toledo. Definitely a must-see for any Toledo-bound enthusiasts.
Just got into mountain biking. Been on a dirtbike most of my life, so I picked up a 29er hard tail and have been coming here at least 3 times a week. It is a very diverse track that is fun for beginners and advanced riders. Features a couple decent jumps a nice log tabletop, and some nice technical obstacles. I have been having a great time here. And everyone I meet is very friendly.
Fantastic asset to have in an urban environment. What started as a little over 3 miles of singletrack has exponentially grown to over 7. There is a good mix of varying course, in addition to a newly completed jump park. Highly recommended for anyone in the Toledo mountain biking community who doesn't want to drive 2 hours north.
What a nice surprise in the heart of Toledo. Jermain Park MTB trail has a lot to
offer. A nice variety of obstacles of varying difficulty. The trail is well marked
and the harder obstacles have markers and the trail offers bypass loops for
beginners. Lots of wildlife (I saw several deer on my ride). There are some
hill climbs in the form of switchbacks up a hillside. Ottawa Metropark is adjacent to Jermain and has some nice paved biketrails as well. Jermain can
be as easy or as difficult as you want to make it. A good trail for groups of riders with different skill levels.
This is a paved trail that you can access from the Univ. Of Toledo campus or the Wildwood Metropark. Parking is much easier to find in the park. There is a spur off the main park trail that connects to the University trail. Trail runs along RR tracts, power lines, and crosses some busy city streets. A typical metropolitan trail. Moderate use on weekdays, can be crowded on weekends.
