Summary:
Sorry to report but as of last year this trail no longer exists. You can find bits and pieces but it's not worth it.

Reviewed by: terry , from elkgrove village

Summary:
Challanging climb with 5 different routes to test your legs. Try them all in the same day-I dare ya.
Take the north route behind the hill as it turns and twistd between trees and usually Deer will watch your travels. There are a few down trees to jump and a creek to "TRY" to cross if the water's not too high. Play with combining routes and you can easily put on 10 miles there. Mostly flat, can be muddy at times but fun. Try it you'll like Busse woods offering.

Recommended Route:
climb the hill from the east and follow the trail down the back side to the sw. Watch out for the small trees along the trail they'll grab you. Follow to right,turn left and right again to head north toward the creek. Multiple trails along the way to take but some are now full of water due to construction.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Go to Deer grove for more technical riding.

Summary:
only trail not overgrown was the "10 o'clock trail" but i didn't try all of them. the ones to the north off the top of the hill got lost in five foot grass. cool descent down the hill and creek crossing. anybody wanna ride around here send me an email.

Recommended Route:
behind Alexian Bros Hospital a quarter mile on left through chained off access road, up hill. trails lead off there. good trail about 10 o'clock if you come up the hill from that access road. you can see the hill from 53.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
deer grove
