Summary:
I recently rode this trail with a friend of mine after having not ridden this system in some time. Unfortunately, it seems to have degraded significantly over the past year and a half. While the main loop remains somewhat cleared, many of the lesser used trails have become overgrown and difficult to follow. Storms and flooding have eroded much of the north bank of the creek that divides the trail system, making riding the creek side section of the north side section treachorous.Large fallen trees that are too large to move and too thick for a light chainsaw to cut have blocked several trails, making it awkward to pass.

In an effort to get this trail system back up to par (and hopefully beyond), we have initiated some substantial trail maintenance efforts on this system. Thus far we have cleared several existing trails and added new trails on the north side. On the south side we have added a bridge crossing for one of the muckier sections of the trail. In reference to some of the complaints about the trail system being confusing, we plan to add colored blazes marking loops, including the popular race loop, a loop for novice riders, and a loop for experts looking for a more technical ride. We would also like to map this trail system and make these maps available at the local bike shops. With the help of the local bike club, we plan to continue this effort through the winter and by spring hopefully have a much improved City Park trail system. In an effort to get this process moving as quickly as possible, we welcome anyone in the area who would like to help. Also, please get out there and ride these trails. The new trails are soft and need to broken in. If you do ride the trails, we would love any feedback or suggestions on what can be done to improve them. Please feel free to contact me (Tony) at my email address - acarrick@comcast.net. I will post to this board periodically with updates on the trail maintenance efforts for this system.

Summary:
I was in Salisbury working for the week so I read the reviews for this place and decided to bring my bike. I found a few good trails but I was not able to make a good flowing ride from this place. I assume it would have been better if I was with some one who knew the trail and was able to link up the trails to make this 4 mile loop I read about. I can say these trails are packed a tiny area. I probably won't bring my bike if I'm in the area next time.

Recommended Route:
Deffinately find some one who knows this 4 mile loop every one wtites about.

Summary:
there is some tight, windy, and fairly rooty singletrack in these trails. I would recommend seeing one of the local bike shops and asking their advice before riding. There is a lot of trail packed into a very small area, and it can be confusing. the good thing is that you won't get lost because the area is so small that you are always near a major road. I would also recommend that you keep your speed in check while riding these trails. There are a lot of people around this area and some of them do walk on the trails. I think that this is a good little trail system for riders of all skill levels. there is little else in the area for mountain biking and kudos to those who built and maintained these trails.

Recommended Route:
I found out about this trail from this website, otherwise I wouldve never known it existed. I parked at the Civic Center and kinda wandered around the area till I found myself on the trail. there seems to be 2 major sections of trails, one on each side of the water. I only saw one place where one might be able to cross the (bigger) stream but I decided against trying it. The trails on one side are much more hilly than the other flatter side. However the hilly side has so many trails crisscrossing one another that it can be confusing to ride at times. The other flatter side seems to have 3 major trails that run close to the full length of the system. by zigzagging back and forth on the trails you can get a decent ride in.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
i havent found any, has anyone ever ridden the ATV trails down at snow hill at the state park? I went down there once, not exactly great but it was nice and isolated and quiet. of course i didnt run into any ATVers either.

Summary:
These trails are very well maintained. There is a little over 4 miles of windy tight singletrack. There is one creek crossing and multiple log crossings. There are two so called hills in this area but not enough to make your heart jump out of your chest. These trails are very rootie and will make you work for every pedal stroke. These trails are maintained by both the shops in the area ( not just bikesport ). If you're looking to ride with the cooler shop call JR or Kevin at the Salisbury Schwinn shop. 410-546-4747. We do night and day group rides daily. All skill levels welcome!

Recommended Route:
Park at civic center

Summary:
This is a very good single track trail system. We have a NORBA sanctioned race here in May. This trail can be as had as you like or you can ride around most of the obstructions. Multiple log piles one creek crossing amazingly long up hills and down hills for flat land. This trail is a lot of fun and a great place to improve your skills.

Recommended Route:
Park at the Pavillion and proceed upstream of the river. The course crosses the gravel path on three locations. You can pick up the trail any where along here. If you are interestd in riding the entire course as we have it set contact Jeremy or Rob at BikeSport. A map of the trails is in the process of being put together.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Unfortunatly we are very limited in trails here. If you like flat and easy there are numerous trails at the beach. Assategue Island is only 25 miles away.
