Update

Old school singletrack through a mix of hardwood, pine, and grassy clearings.

Bill Walters

Overview

This is an old-school mountain bike trail that follows three primary sections in the Eastwood Park. These easy singletrack trails pack in a surprising amount of mileage through tightly loops and turns. Follow the ride counterclockwise, as mapped, for the most fun!

Need to Know

There are a number of connector trails scattered about. If you make a wrong turn the area is small enough that you should soon be back on track.

Description

Start the ride on the West Trail near the horseshoe pits and gazebo. The singletrack heads right into a grove of mostly hardwood trees. There are some short moderate climbs and descents along the fall line, but overall the elevation tends to head moderately upwards. Keep an eye out for a few optional obstacles along the way. Near the end, the West Trail travels through a prairie like clearing before entering back into the trees.

The Middle Trail begins as riders exit the woods to cross the lawn past the baseball diamond. From there it twists and winds through tight turns beneath the trees. There's also one very short fall-line climb before it crosses over the lawn on the other side to where the West Trail begins.

At the edge of the trees turn onto a paved path. Almost immediately, look for the singletrack to take off on your left. This section is characterized by some tight turns through a mostly pine grove. The second part of the East Trail travels through a mix of pine and sections of buckthorn. The buckthorn forms a kind of impenetrable hedge that gives riders the feeling of moving down a tunnel. The East Trail ends next to the playground equipment back on the Middle Trail.

Head west across the lawn to a short doubletrack through the trees. On the other side, travel around the baseball diamond to arrive back by the gazebo near the start.

Typical midwest trail, lots of short climbs and descents. Lots of small technical features that really increase replay value.

Look out for soft sand at the bottom of descents and pick a good line so to not bog and maintain speed for the next hill. Jul 30, 2017
