Cliff Cave County Park

Average Rating:    (3.55 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 11

The section to the North is a rocky loop thats fairly technical, watch out you don't go off the cliffs! this loops around to a spot near the South trailhead which is where most of the trails are. Trails seem to go everywhich way, and I estimate 15-20 miles in total. There is lots of fast singletrack, with an assortment of steep hills, logs, and so forth to keep you busy. follow the last group of NORBA arrows to see how the latest race course was set up. The place gets muddy after wet weather, so a dry spell is best. Lots of bug s in the summer.

Summary:
Park trails have had alot of work put into them in the last 2 years by Gateway Offroad Cyclists (GORC). 4+ miles that can be ridden in multiple loops with several cross connectors. You can easily ride for 1 hour and feel like you have not been on the same trail. From fast and flowing to tight and twisty surfing trails with minimal elevation up and down. Very single speed friendly on the Spring Valley trail and inner loop. Great place for a beginner to learn. Small techinical sections are on the North side of the road with a 1 mile loop with several rock gardens and drops.

Recommended Route:
If you do not want the steep climb up to the trail loops park at Oakville Middle School on Telegraph road and ride across north end of field in back of school.

Summary:
I usually ride these trails because i leve right by them. i think they are pretty good because on the far south it gets more for speed and once you move north it gets rockier and more hilly. once you cross north over the road it gets fun because its just strait up rocks just try not to fall of the cliff. Its nice because when u are done riding you can either follow the road down and sit by the river or you can cool off in cliff cave which is pretty refreshing.

Recommended Route:

Summary:
I was not impressed with the way the trail had been marked. It wasn't especially challenging, however, I must admit it was faster than I had expected. It was nice to finally experience it though.

Recommended Route:
Take one of the two trailheads and your guess is as good as mine is; it was that poorly marked.

Summary:
This trail is a very hard one to stay on.It has lots of dead end trails and alot of fallen trails.You do not want to get to close to the edge of the trails because of the ditches to fall in.I would recommend riden this trail with someone incase you do get hurt.Do not ride if it has rained in the last 3 or 4 days.If you get lost follow the houses back to Cliff Cave or Oakville Middle. Walk the trail before you ride it.

Recommended Route:
Start at
Oakville Middle and and follow the houses through the trail. Go down Cliff Cave Rd. it is a fast and cool ride.
