Summary:
I ride here almost everyday and hardly ever see another soul besides some runners every now and then. The Trails are mostly wider single/double track with some dirt/gravel roads and field crossings. You'll come across ups, downs, rooty trails, smooth trails, creeks, bridges, etc. Nothing is too tech, but still fun. Good place to ride.

Recommended Route:
Park at the baseball/softball diamonds towards the back of campus. Big trailhead there at the end of a gravel road. If you follow the tree line you'll find more smaller trailheads(this is true for most wooded areas around the whole campus). Explore and enjoy.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Scales Lakes

Summary:
this is a great trail lots of trees and loads of great hills both up and down hill, plenty of braking and all that fun stuff watch out if it rains before you go but not enough to make the mud sticky cuz you'll be walking alot.

Recommended Route:
Lloyd Expressway to 164 loop(go to the Kentucky side) to bypass the lloyd stop lights come back to the lloyd after the casino aztar and turn left to Eichoff Road.

Reviewed by: JeffBmontana , from Evansville,Indiana

Summary:
Excellent local trail, ride the trifecta of the Evansville area in the same day (Angel Mounds, USI, and Scales Lake). Start at the softball diamond and ride the right side of the open field until you come to the bottom of the hill. Enter the wooded trail and follow until you come to the back baseball diamonds. Follow the trail back into the woods and enjoy a variety of loops that interconnect. Lots of steep hills, some open field riding, several stream crossings. You might see a few runners on the trails during the school year. Like most places in Southern Indiana....you should not ride for a few days after a rain. Beginners to experts can find this trail to be fun!

Recommended Route:
Instead of parking at baseball fields park at softball diamond(bypass bennet ln and continue straight thru campus until you see the softball field

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Scales Lake, Angel Mounds
