Summary:
Directions:
The trail is relatively easy to get to. Once in Dodge City, take interstate 50 east. Take a left on 116th Rd. Take that down until you see a small parking lot on the right hand side.

Track:
This single track is fun to ride. It offers 10 miles of twisty trails, both in the woods and in open fields. It offers an area with some decent drops and climbs (around 6'). The grass area is not too fun to ride through. I enjoy riding through the wooded areas. They have some alright obstacles, nothing very technical. This is probably the best trail to ride in southwest Kansas.

Summary:
Don't waste your time! This trail hasn't been ridden in two years I would guess. Can't even find a lot of the trails and the ones that are there are totally overgrown and not even rideable. I wish I would've posted a question about the condition of this trail before I loaded my bike up and brought it with me on my work road trip! There obviously isn't a group or shop in the area anymore.

Recommended Route:
None

Summary:
Nice trails. I was on a biz trip here a couple of years ago and one
of the local bike shops lined me up with a guy from Garden City
for a ride here. Great fun and a real suprise. If I get back out to
the Dodge area I will ride again. Trail was 7 miles out and back
when I rode it. Seems like the local folks ran a Wed evening ride
here. If you're in the area definetly ride it!

Recommended Route:
follow other descriptions given here

Reviewed by: Marty Bates , from Garden City, Kansas

Summary:
I ride this trail a lot, there are often regular group rides on Wednesday, Thursday evenings and Sunday afternoons. It's a sweet fast trail with some fun attributes, The trail builders are always finding ingenious ways to add a few 10ths of a mile. My rating is based on it's great to have a local trail.

Recommended Route:
Definitely park in the bikers lot, about a half mile south of the main entrance. The way locals generally ride is to the left out of the parking lot and just follow the trail. There's a total of about 10 miles in one continuous loop. (including the playground)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lake Scott State Park, Frazier Park in Ulysses, Garden City has a river trail.
