Family Friendly Picnic area with playground and duck pond adjacent to the beginner trails (Crazy Eights, Tadpole, Thunder). Beginner trails are very well designed for progression with berms and tiny rock gardens.

The park closes at sundown.

Overview

This is a fun park with multiple trails connecting each other. This quick loop utilizes the best up and down sections of the park.

Need to Know

This park has many trails and it is very easy to get lost, so be prepared with a map or the MTB Project mobile app and just keep the pond as a reference. This loop is quick and uses the best trails of the park (my opinion), but you can spend hours in this maze of trails.

Description

Start from the parking lot and follow the road on the right of the pond, and you'll find the Tadpole (1) on the right. Climb up. At the top, cross the paved road and get onto Lyon's Gait (16) you'll find yourself in a maze of trails. Don't panic as they will all end up at one of the two ends, (you want to end up at the north part). Meanwhile, have fun. These trails are easy up and down singletracks

Lyon's Gait (16) goes all around the capped landfill, and it will take you to the west side of the park. From there, Lower Ledge (4) will take you to the Grand Junction. Here, I take the expert section Viper (14) (note I mark this ride as intermediate not considering this section). This section is a quick downhill with four open jumps not good for new riders.

My next stop is to get to the top of the Cyclone (10). To get there, there are many trails. Keep Cyclone (10) as a reference point. At the top, you start the fun downhill back to the Grand Junction, then instead of getting onto Viper (14), you'll continue on the Thunder (3), which will lead you to the bottom of the park.

1 of many bridges on Galloping Gert and this side of the park.  They all have expanded metal sheets on them for traction over Trex decking.
