Good downhills and very peaceful at bottom by the creek. Can be very tricky when wet. Lots of rocks and logs to ride. Go and check it out!

Summary:
The first thing you will notice about these trails is there are not tire tracks. There are no tire tracks because this place charges $10 per bike! What a joke.

The trails were nice, but obviously they are only trying to deter riders. Avoid this place at all costs.

Recommended Route:
Don't bother.

Summary:
Well, the trails are awesome! The main loop is a blast to ride and will challenge most folks. There are also additional loops built just last year that will give you additional ride time and you'll be thankful for the work the fellas and ladies put into them. Before you go though stop by Outdoor Ventures in Radcliff and get a map of the trails. I'll be honest though, the park service does charge 10bucks to ride the trails. That's why I don't go out very often. It's a shame too, the trails are great and fun to ride but b/c of the pricetag, I can't give these trails a "5" rating.

Recommended Route:
Green loop is the most utilized by both bikes and hikers but there are some additional loops that were built in 2011.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Youngers Creek (about 20-25 miles from Otter Creek...and they're FREE); Fort Duffield (about 10 miles from Otter Creek.....unless you're a DH guy I think the trails here are "meh"); Waverly Park (in Louisville about 30-35 miles away, these are good but I say hit Youngers Creek.

Summary:
Since reopening Otter Creek has been a big disappointment. The trails are minimal and are not easy to find. Especially the trails down by the creek. Not only that but these dumbass horse riders are tearing up the trails more and more everytime i go back. To top it off, they charge $10 PER BIKER not per vehicle. If you live in Louisville do not waste your time driving all the way out there and paying $10 to get lost on horse trails more or less.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Waverly, Fort Duffield, Cherokee, Briar hill, Younger creek.

Summary:
Otter Creek Park has been closed by the Louisville Metro Gov. It is no longer legal to ride there. As of Sept 09 they have made no plans to re-open it.

Summary:
I really like these trails. I wasn't able to ride all of them so I'm anxious to get back next summer. From what I saw this would be a great place for beginners and intermediate riders. I've read that there's some tech DH stuff, but I'm not sure where. I also spoke with someone who said the trail by the river is much more technical than the upper trails.

The area I rode was mostly to the north of the Nature Center. There were enough roots to keep it interesting but I wouldn't say it was technical. It was rolling singletrack with rideable hills for anyone in average shape. The trails are very clearly marked and the scenery is nice including a great overlook of the river.

Recommended Route:
Everyone I saw seemed to be heading north from the Nature Center and riding it clockwise.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
I've read Duffield is great but haven't been yet.
