Open year round. Do not use trail when it is soft. The soil here is high in clay so it dries quickly after a rain, but generally stays wet well into the spring. Check the frequently updated conditions at nearby Royalview Singletrack for an idea of how things stand.

An impressive amount of singletrack is packed into a small park. They are best ridden in one big loop and are laid out to easily allow this. The trails are mostly marked as one way, so please respect this.

The character of the trails varies a bit, but generally twists tightly on bench cut singletrack through young forest and a river floodplain. The trails are mostly well marked but there are several points on the Reagan Park Trail where needed signs are missing, although I can't imagine anyone getting seriously lost.
This featured ride starts at Huffman Park, where there is plenty of parking. There is a trail map kiosk near the entrance and the singletrack starts off to the right after passing through a gate.

This is the Huffman Trail. It is easily followed until it ends at a doubletrack path that is followed to the right and around some soccerfields. Just before getting back to the parking lot, follow a connector trail leading off to the right and onto the road to cross a river before dropping back into the woods on the right. This is the Fawn Ridge Trail.

After a steep uphill the River Trail heads off to the right. This follows the river until you get to an intersection where you can skip the harder sections of the River Trail to the left or bear right and follow the trail around a loop. Eventually you get near the road and back onto the Fawn Ridge Trail for about 100 yards.

When you get right next to the road where there are a couple of parking spots and a short section of guardrail you can cross the road onto a paved path. Shortly off to the left is the one way Reagan Park Trail. Follow this around its loop. There are some sections near fields that have had lots of little paths added from kids hiking into the woods. Pay attention to the map in these areas and it is easy to stay on the trail.

At one point the trail pops out of the woods near a baseball field and it is unmarked for about 50 yards. Follow the baseball field fence to the left and you'll see a sign pointing you back into the woods. When you reemerge on the paved path that started the Reagan Park Trail take it back across the road and continue right on the Fawn Ridge Trail back across the road bridge to the parking lot.

It isn't an epic ride - but it is fun.
