Description

Marion Diehl has undergone some changes in the last year or so due to the expansion of the ball fields at Marion Diehl Park and the Sugar Creek Greenway construction. The start of the trail is now at the southeastern end that connects with the Sugar Creek Greenway. The trail can still be accessed from the original entrance of the trail across Tyvola Rd. from Farmbrook Dr. but once the BYT Parking Lot is complete, access to the Marion Diehl parking lot will be restricted.

The trail climbs from the start back to the original entrance then turns around and is a fairly speedy descent back to the Sugar Creek Greenway. There are many punchy, rooty climbs to challenge even the best riders. The creek crossing which required a hike-a-bike has been rerouted through a short two-way section of trail near the middle but can still be ridden if you chose to do so.
