Great "Something for everyone" local trail system

Adopt These Trails!

Overview

A nice series of trails for you to go as long as you want. Most trails lead back to the main gravel road that goes through the middle of the park. There's doubletrack, easy peasy winding dirt track, log overs, rocky terrain, some climbing and quick, fun descents.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

Most people start in the parking lot off of Lenhert Rd. You head out toward the sidewalk and from there, you can access most trails by following that road. As you ride along the main road, you'll see trails meeting from either side. If you take the first trail on the left as you start to enter the park, you can take the trail out to the ball fields and cross a bridge over the creek that'll take you to more singletrack. It's easy to end up back on the same trail, sometimes going the opposite way. Some trails can get overgrown and there are many side trails that are, more or less, access for fishing spots and not necessarily good for riding. There's a lot of foot traffic by hikers, people fishing and the disc golf course also on the land.

With its close proximity to the malls and a lot of suburban areas surrounding, this is a great training spot if you live in the whitehall area and need a quick ride after work before the sun goes down. Its easy enough for beginners to ride, while providing rollers and other technical features to practice for better spots like Trexler. I'd love if VMB would start having trail days here to improve some of the trails and maybe make some more technical trails. Sep 28, 2015
