Summary:
Great trail for beginner mountain bikers. The trail is flat with few obstacles in the path, mostly just roots. You can make the trail as hard as you want by choosing how fast you go. It gets pretty awesome when you build some speed and the trail begins to flow nicely Watch for incoming cyclists around the corners though...most people know the trail's direction but I've encountered a few zipping around a blind corner.

Summary:
Definittely for the beginner to never rideen a bike before rider. If you just do the same loop for an hour you could probably be at a mile haha. Very slow easy rolling ride. I suggest you ride the jamaica trail which runs along the trails it is like 15 miles long if u go there and back nice trail.

Recommended Route:
just ride

Summary:
Very flat and twisty loop. You can make this trail as easy or technical as you want depending on how much speed you are willing to carry through it! I'm writing this review because I am finally appreciating Wilderness park for what it is. I haven't run across another trail that has done more for my off-road riding skills than Wilderness. In all fairness, that could be because of it's proximity to me or the frequency of which I ride it, but either way it can do wonders for you if you want to work on your bike handling skills. I'm not suggesting this is a "destination" trail - if you have to drive 30 minutes or more just go to Platte or Lewis & Clark - but if you're in the area you owe it to yourself to learn the benefits of this trail. At <13 mph it's a very ho-hum trail, and it seems it's only redeeming quality is it's not concrete or crushed rock. But kick that speed up to around 20mph and try to hold 15 or better through the corners and you'll learn a whole lot about your bike handling skills!

Recommended Route:
I usually run at night with lights and I start from the north end ride the biker side all the way to the big bridge, hiker side back. If you're running during the day stay off the hiker side until policy changes. During the late spring, summer, & early fall cover is thick so bring a bell or something because head-ons are not uncommon.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Platte
Lewis & Clark

Summary:
The bridge North of Pioneer is out. A round trip is something like 22 miles. Mostly flat. I give it a 3 because its about 5 miles from my house.

Recommended Route:
I recomend starting at Pioneer street and ride south. I think the best section of the trail is between pioneer and the old railroad tracks, they are located south of oldcheney.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Branced Oak is fairly close, and more challenging.

Summary:
Flat and very curvy trail that is challenging when ridden fast with a group of strong riders. A few small jumps and small downed trees may be found, but it is not overly technical.

Recommended Route:
I have ridden this trail now around 5-10 times. I usually ride the trail with the MWC crew on Tuesday nights. Like others have said before me, this trail is very fun if ridden at a smoking pace. I ride a 34x16 29er and one must spin hard to keep up with the lead group. The park is flat, but there are turns both tight and swooping everywhere. You have to carry alot of momentum and watch your lines when traveling at speed or you will soon be off your bike.

Please note that my ratings are purely based upon riding this trail balls to the wall with a big group seasoned riders. If you ride this trail at a slow pace then you will probably not agree with my ratings.
