Aldeen Park

Average Rating:    (4.44 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 9

Lots of roots, double track throughout the park. Some singletrack-- the real fun is jumping over the sides of the creek, otherwise, there isnt a whole lot to do...But if your into some "extreme" freeriding, this is the best spot in Rockford. A number of high flying jumps, and sick drop offs. Check out my website for some pictures of aldeen, and of me riding it . http://homestead.juno.com/mak90_1/mountainbike.html

Summary:
some very fun stuff out there. problem is, its just a spider-webbed, cluster-f*** of a trail system, no signage or layout of any kind. I went out and just rode around trying to ride everything and get an idea of whats there. rode for like 2 hours and still didn't ride it all. There were lots of trails that just dead end into nothing. you could tell there was some crazy m-f'ers out there at one point. lots of potential for some fun freeride stuff, i'm going to look into doing some work there, and building some stuff, but i've got to figure out who to talk to.

one thing it has plenty of is steep hills, i was in my smallest chainring almost the whole time. a few hills i couldn't even get up because my front tire wouldn't stay down. definitely some challenges.

Recommended Route:
just plan on going in circles and doubling back alot

Summary:
great trails, my buddy and i went out there today and had alot of fun, it's right next to the rockford college campus so if your going there next semester you wont get bored. some technical stuff here and there whenever you see a tree down, have no fear there are usually built up logs and sticks before it so you can either jump it or ride right over. we even ran into a suspended log (between 3 and 4 feet up) to ride over a 25 foot long ditch so if your a more advanced rider out with some people that are new to the activity you can show off a little without getting bored. i am new to the sport myself so i need ideas on a new bike considering i am riding a walmart bike.

These trails are so awesome. I would serioulsy like to meet who the hell is making this crazy stuff so give me an e-mail because if u need help building this summer i'll be more than happy to help out. This stuff is just so fun to ride and whoever is building this stuff is crazy but cool. I would recommend these trails to anyone whos looking for something a little more tech and different than Rockcut. Peace out

Summary:
lots of nice fresh single track. routs change after each spring thaw. no limit to the unmarked trails. just domt draw too much attention to the riding or we will get kicked out like in rock cut.

Recommended Route:
drive on alpine and you will find it. big park with a big dam.
