Quail Ridge

Average Rating:    (3.8 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 10

Old equestrian trails rehabbed by Gateway Off-Road Cyclists and St.Charles County Parks. Narrow trails with multiple creek crossings and many short power hills. Rocky to packed dirt trail surface gives you a little bit of everything. Scenic views of Peruque Creek and the valley top off the experience.

Summary:
quite a bit of trail packed in a small area.

ALL the good bits are in the little loops, concentrated on the eastern end of the trail. multiple creek crossings that probably requires dismount. lots of rocks and loose gravel. there's a little section next to the red loop (runs along the river) that's probably built for hiking, and is very technical or unridable, depending on your point of view.

once outside these loops the trails are flat and fast. runs along a river so it can be very relaxing.

not a bad trail overall.

Recommended Route:
start off on the west side trail head (not very well marked so you have to look for it), ride the smooth sections for warm up, ride all the loops and repeat as many times as you see fit, then ride back for warm down.

Summary:
Lots of different terrain packed into a short-ish ride. Great fun for SS. Get's pretty muddy, but still fun and not very technical.

Recommended Route:
Every which way but loose.

Summary:
i think this park and trail is a great for those who are needing to get out and have a good time. the flat trail follows the creek and the hills are a great work out. but not to bad for those who are not in the best shape and skilled.

Recommended Route:
does'nt matter where to start. the park workers told me they are working on and adding better markers for the trails . heres a link for the maps. .http://www.stccparks.org/qrmap.htm

Summary:
"Why haven't I brought my bike out here before?" was what I found myself saying repeatedly as I rode the trails at Quail Ridge. Like a Castlewood for St. Charles County (CW River Scene & Stinging Nettle Trails, with a little Grotpeter thrown in for good measure).

I gave it a 3 on aerobic, but you can make it more difficult by riding it faster ;-)

It's not really technical, you can bomb down just about all the hills on the west side without fear of what you'll hit at the bottom.

Summary:
a very fun network of trails. the climbs are more technical than long. a lot of variety of terrain, and lots of sweet creek crossings and switchbacks to keep you entertained. a good trail to ride on a singlespeed on.

a very impressive park on the whole. St. Charles is becoming its own center for riding now, what with This trail, Matson Hill, Lost Valley, and soon to have Klondike... totally sweet.

Recommended Route:
i dunno, just go

Other recommended trails in the same area:
