Meandering singletrack loop with some technical hills and bridge crossings. The trail has some tight technical stretches and several portions where you can open the throttle. Work continues on this newly developed trail (2002).

Summary:
This trail is now closed, and has been for some time. I got down to Terre Haute in the fall of 2005, and the trail had a nice little sign "bike trail closed." Being the only good trail in the area, my friends and I continued to ride it until in the spring of 2006, we arrived and were greeted by bulldozers. Apparently the area is being logged, and so dies another great trail. The latest thing I've heard is that the trail will re-open after logging and is currently owned by one of the local bike shops, Terre Haute Cycling and Fitness.

NONE, that's the problem. Most of the Terre Haute Parks have great trails with "NO BIKES ALLOWED" signs. Contact me if you want to help change this.

Summary:
Great trail for my skill level and more.
Nice single track with plenty of technicals, turns, fast downs and a few bridges thrown in for fun (these keep the ATV's off the trail). There are enough riders on this trail to keep it in really good shape but not be crowded.
I marked 4 miles on my computer but there are some offshoots that one might explore.
Dino had a race here 2003 and is still marked with surveyor tape to keep you on route. BSG's tell me there are plans to expand the system.

Recommended Route:
Start at the N.E. corner from the shelter, stay left until you hit singletrack. The first splinter trail is a left turn, but stay right and dig in. It just gets better and better from there on.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Kickapoo State Park, Danville Ill.
Nebo Ridge, Story Ind.

Summary:
This is a great little trail! A few thrills, tight sections, and fun bridges make this a very enjoyable ride.

If you live anywhere nearby please get involved and help the riders who built it continue and add more trail. There is a strong possibility DINO will visit for a race in the near future...

Recommended Route:
Start to the right side, stay right each turn until you hit singletrack. Then go with the flow.
