Description

Riley Trails as a formal mountain bike trail is just a couple years old. It features gently rolling terrain through pines and beech-maple forests. It's a popular trail for singletrack mountain biking, as well as being a destination trail for fat bikes in the winter.

The trailhead begins at the park's main parking lot. The one way singletrack winds around mostly the perimeter of the park. The trail includes four segments, featuring some short climbs and descents. The trail is mostly flat though. The trail base is mostly sandy, making not it an ideal destination when rains have closed most other area trails.

The trail is open year round, hours are 7am to 10 pm daily.
