Description

This is a public trail on private land near downtown Lafayette. The owners are avid mountain bikers and welcome all mountain bikers (no bmx) and trail runners at no charge, but a liability form is required. This can be filled out in the back yard of the house at 920 E State Street, Lafayette, Indiana. This trail is not for beginners, but parts of the Valley Street section can be ridden by less skilled riders.

The trail was designed by Bob Haan so he and his wife could learn the mountain biking techniques needed to ride trails around the country. While there are lots of technical sections, overall the trail flows well and can be ridden with speed.

The intermediate sections have benched areas, rocks, bridges, ramps, and other features, and the advanced areas have more extreme features. Built in a ravine, this trail has significant climbs. Proximity to the Murdock Park trail allows riders to ride both trails without driving.

Cool tight trails with lots of obstacles. No longer need to fill out a liability form. Enter trail behind the carriage house.

Good shape overall. The valley is overgrown but lush and a little bit surreal. Watch out for obstacles that mischievous kids have placed on the trail.
