Village Greens Park North Mountain Bike Skills Trail is a 2 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Englewood, Colorado and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for mountain biking and is accessible year-round.
Generally, not a place for cardio or a long ride. It's a great place to build technical mountain biking skills. Practice climbing, riding over logs and rocks, and riding down steeps. The Mountain Bike Skills Course is approximately 2.75 miles in length and provides a single track trail experience. The course contains over 100 obstacles, which vary in difficulty ranging from beginner to black diamond obstacles. Each obstacle in this area has a bypass.At the north end of the single track are two smaller, more challenging loops: the hill loop and the prairie loop. The hill loop has more steep climbs and even segments of track containing difficult, black diamond, obstacles and no bypasses. Riders are reminded to wear protective gear and to ride within their skill limits. The riders approach speed, line and balance will affect their ability to successfully maneuver over the different features. Please review the entry course signs for trail etiquette and trail details.
Numerous obstacles from beginner to expert. Great place to teach kids technique. Unbelievable sessions, from switchbacks to log rolls, from steep incline to pump track, drop-offs to technical climbs. This place has it all. Only thing missing is big jumps. Would recommend to riders of all abilities. Only knock on this trail is that it has no shade but the trees are only a short ride away.
I don't see how this place is rated so high. The few obstacles that are there are intermediate for a kid maybe. It's annoying to hear all the traffic right off of i225. No shade what so ever. The only nice part is how close it is... takes 20 minutes to get there from my house. Go just a little outside of the city and find a much nicer trail.
I love this park I will definitely come back again, so many thing to do!
Five stars for meeting its purpose. I have ridden these trails with my 9 year old daughter and 10 year old son. The other people on the trail were friendly, and I felt like there was ample time and space for me to teach my children mountain biking skills. There's plenty of room for them to grow and practice here before going to more difficult and longer trails. It's just a great place to assess their skills and stamina. There is no sun protection here, so prepare accordingly. Fortunately, you are never far from the parking lot.
