Overview

This trail is all singletrack with lots of speed and some challenging hills. Many racers train here and its location makes this trail a great "after work" ride for anyone.

Need to Know

Park at the playground. There are trails heading out from either side of the road from there. All trails will lead back to this area, so it's hard to get lost.

Description

A favorite loop of this trail is to start at the playground and head up the "radio tower" trail which is just north and on the same side of the road as the parking lot. This will take you to the front of the park where you'll cross the road and head up a steep climb known as "Montana Mountain".

From there, as you continue, stay left at each (marked) trail fork to couple all the (~7.5 mile) trail segments together and you'll eventually make a loop. Otherwise, If you get tired, take any of the trail forks right which will bring you out across from the playground.

This trail is not technically challenging, but is VERY fast, and has a fair share of climbing, which makes it a workout.

Waverly Park is also a popular night riding destination.

Although close to the city, sections of Waverly can have a "backcounty" feel.

Mostly nice small singletrack with moderate uphills and fast downhills. Minimal features, but the ones they do have are fun and well built. My frie… 6.4mi — 2h 30m

Starts with a decent climb but the 2nd half is fast, flowy, and fun. Good go to in Louisville. Hit this when it's dry, mostly dirt.
