Summary:
I rode the trail for the first time on 10/27/13. It was a wet, muddy day. It was definitely rideable and there were quite a few people on the trail, but there were a few spots that were very muddy.

I am a new rider and found this trail to be pretty challenging. There was nothing dangerous but it was a technical ride and it was difficult to get a good flow going due to my lack of skills. For newer riders, I'd definitely recommend Royalview in Strongsville over this trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Reagan Park, Royalview, West Branch, Mohican, Vulture's Knob

Summary:
AKA "The Thorn" MTB Trail
I am updating my old review because this place has changed a bit - for the better, of course!
It is now very close to 10 mi. All the classic lines are still there, but thanks to Nab and the boys a new section has been added to include 2 creek crossings and some fast twisty's. The faster you go, the tougher it gets. And while it is quite flat, anyone can get a really good workout here while having fun. For the racers, there are about 1,000 chances to gain or lose time, which is what makes the Tues. time trials in the Summer such a big hit.
For the novices, nothing terribly daunting awaits you, but the short, steep climbs will catch you, and there are bypasses for some of the trickier stuff.
Trail is often wet (and closed) early in the season, but once it dries out it gets ridden in and gets faster throughout the season. Getting around the campground is easy with a map, allowing you to cut your ride short if you're not feeling your mojo.

Summary:
Excellent trail close to Cleveland. Nothing super tough, just lots of twisty, fairly flat riding with more log stunts being added regularly. A few short steep drops and climbs- just enough to keep it interesting, plus the last section has lots of roots to make it challenging. Awesome new bridge at old creek crossing after steep drop. Definitely worth the trip from Cleveland.

Recommended Route:
Mountain bike parking area is left from park entrance. Enter trail on left past gate. Follow clockwise. Do the stunts- there's nothing dangerous.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Medina- Reagan/ Huffman is only 1/2 hour away.

Summary:
This is a gem of a trail for north central Ohio. The trail builders did a great job with what they had to work with. Fun small ups and downs, with tight twisty single track. Trail also has some fun log rollovers, and other wooden stunts built to make flat sections more interesting. Lots of roots to keep you honest. If you are in this area I highly suggest stopping by. My hat is off to the trail builders, thanks.

Recommended Route:
just one loop, take it and go!
