A nice ride with lots of variety, moderate climbs, tight turns and man-made obstacles.

Description

Find the trailhead on the west side of Eastman Rd., just past the county fair grounds. The South Loop can be reached by riding a short distance a little past the 1-mile marker.

The trail offers a variety of obstacles, both natural and man-made. Lots of bridges, up and overs, man-made jumps, some natural drops, and some moderate climbs. The South Loop offers a more challenging ride than the North Loop, but has similar trail conditions. The trails are fairly smooth-rolling, for the most part, but there are some parts that are getting rooted out.

Overall, this is a nice, quiet trail. Some nights are busy with local group rides but never crowded. You would never know while out there that you are less than a mile from the city. Dogs are allowed off leash in the park, but must be under control. I have never had an issue with dogs out there, and have seen several roaming off leash.

I have run into the occasional horse on the bike trails which is not allowed and posted everywhere.

In all there are over 14 miles of trails at City Park, which have something for just about everyone. This is one of my favorite rides in the area because of how few people are out there.
