“A fast, rolling, purpose-built trail system that has fantastic flow.”— Logan Watts
Camping and swimming are park amenities.
The Hawk Loop dumps you back on the main state park road where you'll find the entrance to Monbo on the right after the bridge. Monbo is the fastest and arguably the most fun trail in the park. Full of many fairly dramatic rollers formed over the terrain, the downhills are fast and have an unbelievable flow.
The Laurel Loop expansion was completed in 2012 which upped the total mileage to 9.75. Laurel is by far the most challenging trail in the park, but is still intermediate at most. There are several steep climbs out of gullies that may make it slightly difficult for beginners. A large chunk of Laurel was built around an awesome ravine, so there are several beautifully built gully runs that have some nice berms.
Also completed in 2012, the Wildlife, Fallstown and Fox Loop offer 8+ more miles to the Laurel expansion. The Wildlife Loop is probably one of the fastest loops in the park, harboring several straightaways, one with some nice jumps and rollers, and one very fun bermed gully run.
