Good Climbs and steep runs. Choose from several types of trails. Several fast with good flow. All may find the initial climb a good challenge. New Down hill run.

Summary:
Trails are great and they just keep growing. If you like berms and flowing trails you won't find better in the Cincinnati area.

Recommended Route:
Incinerator to the top (around a mile), Bates Loop (2 miles) a few times in either direction, the outer side of Back Bowl down to Train Surfer, back to Incinerator and out.
Then across the street from the parking lot up to the top to ride Monty, a screaming blast of a downhill trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
England Idlewild, East Fork Lake

Summary:
This is in my opinion the best trail in the Northern KY area.
The Trailhead is located next to a baseball field under the train trestle, that is how you know you are in correct spot.
There is a choice of 2 different basic routes to get to the top loop, both consisting of about 1 mile climbs, Incinerator and Train Surfer. Also, a shortcut that is fairly steep technical 1/4mile climb, Pigs Tail that you access from the Train Surfer.
Up top you have a nice 2 mile loop, Bates Loop. You then have several options to come down. A 1/4mi downhill dedicated one way trail, the Pigs tail,and the Back Bowl. These all run back onto the Train Surfer trail and can take you back out of the park. The Back Bowl to Train Surfer to Incinerator and out the bottom, consists mostly of a beautiful long downhill run. Of course you can take the Incinerator back down also.

Recommended Route:
Incinerator up to top loop. Couple laps counterclockwise. Take Devoution down hill trail down to Train surfer. Continue back up to the Pigs tail connection and climb up. Back on loop, go to the second back bowl entrance and bomb down that. Then either climb up that Back Bowl section or ride all way down and out.
