A little hidden gem! I never knew this park was here. It’s about a 1.75 mile loop. It’s a great way get a quick challenging (for a novice like me) ride in. You drop in for a brief flat ride until you hit a dangerously steep curved drop to the trail. You’ll cross a windy bridge ( a great Eagle Scout Project) to the Trail. It has a rambling beginning with slight turns but primarily straight, slightly downhill. There is a short curve upward to a decent elevation change. Some rocks but still Trail. There is another nice stretch of flat riding to pick up speed and build endurance. The next section has multiple switchbacks through trees and along narrow paths. Finally you drop into an extremely fun dry creek bed and curl up and down the banks. Then you pop out at the Eagle Scout bridge and decide if you want to do it again. I love it.

I've driven by this park hundreds of time in the past. Never knew this little gem was tucked away in there. Nice network of trails intertwining in the midst of a loop that runs along the expressway on one edge and the quiet fencelines of private property elsewhere. So much there, before you know it, you've put in an hour and a great workout.

Great trail for the family. Hikers loved it and our boys (bikers) love the end!
