Summary:
Don't be confused by the number of trails as they all connect and can be done as one ride. This is a fantastic system through the park. It is very fast and not technical at all, but a great ride with great flow. The most technical section or trail would be Creek Side due to the loose rock. The second most technical section IMHO is Cliff Side due to the slide potential if you fall off the bike and a couple of very short uphill sections.

Summary:
Went here for the first time on July 4, 2010. The trail was in great shape and maintained well. Rode the trail clockwise. The trail has a very good flow. A lot of nice downhill without the steep hard uphill. Some really rocky sections and several creek crossings. I love the flow, but the trail is rather boring. No jumps or log piles...I retract that 1 log pile. Nice trail just not enough "stuff " for me.

Recommended Route:
Counter clockwise

Summary:
This trail system is just another "Feather in the Cap" of Indiana mountain biking. I had a chance to ride it for the second time this weekend, including my first traverse of both Cliffside and Shadow
Run trails. In fact, we did Shadow Run twice, once in each direction. The trails are extremely well designed, implemented and maintained. You can't go wrong with any of the trails at the park, so I suggest you ride them all!

Recommended Route:
We did Shadow Run counter-clockwise, then Creekside, Grandview, Cliffside and Shadow Run clockwise. Just a little over 17 miles that way.

Summary:
Great new trail system.
There are 16 miles of trails at Versailles as of 10-2009. Well maintained with lots of variety. It's mostly intermediate level except for the beginner Shadow Run loop.
There are some 200 foot climbs/descents, excellent scenic views, and riverside runs. There are also some rocky sections, which is rare for Indiana. Nice flow.

Recommended Route:
I think that all the trails flow well in either direction.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Muscatuck County Park in North Vernon, IN.

Summary:
The trail is a nice single track that has a bit of everything. It features a rock garden, tight trees, a few climbs, some logs, etc. If you don't want to ride over the obstacles, you can usually avoid them (except the rock garden). It rides pretty fast for the most part and is pretty easy to navigate. An overall enjoyable ride.

Recommended Route:
Grandview
