A grand tour of Devou Park Trails

Overview

Park Closes at Dark
Downhill yield to uphill
Slow down and exchange pleasantries, its a beautiful day.
This is the marquee trail system in the greater Cincinnati Area. You'll find a combination of super flowy-bermy-jumpy-pumpy singletrack with some modern day tight and twisties. There are three 200+ vertical foot drops/climbs clocking in just under a mile per. There are four to six other 100+ vertical foot drops/climbs clocking in between 1/4 and 1/2 mile. There are road crossings and some pavement one will need to venture on to link up all the trails. This place is sweet! devouparktrails.com for further info

Description

Located minutes off of I-75 and from Downtown Cincinnati, Devou Park is quickly becoming a destination off-road cycling spot. There are numerous areas in the park one can start. Devou Park has the best over look of the City of Cincinnati in the area. It is advised to take time to explore all the trails and all the park amenities. Allow 5-6 hours to do so. See you on the trails!

History & Background

Trail expansion in Devou Park is a multi-year, multi-phase project. The Devou Park Trail Expansion Project is a joint effort between the Greater Cincinnati Off-Road Alliance, and the City of Covington.

Devou Park is a 703-acre park managed by the City of Covington Administration. William Devou purchased the Eubank house (current Behringer- Crawford Museum) and land in 1848. In 1910, the land was given to the City of Covington by the Devou family in memory of their parents (the donation stipulated that the land must be used as a free park to the public).

In 2003, local natural trail surface advocacy members met with the City of Covington Administration and the Devou Park Advisory Committee to plan the establishment of destination-class natural surface trails in Devou Park. Groundbreaking took place in 2008.

To date: (11-19-14) 11 miles of new singletrack has been constructed. A goal to construct another 4-6 miles in the coming years has been set forth. See devouparktrails.co
