Follow this over the railroad tracks and hang an immediate left. Follow this road until you get to Keehner park. Use the second entrance. It will be on your right (you will see tennis courts as you drive in). If you parked in front of the tennis courts, You should see a little white sign on the tree line. That would be the trailhead (in case you didn't know).

Summary:
I've pasted by Kheener park for years and didn't realize they had a trail to ride so I was excited to check it out. I mostly ride Cesars Creek trails (advanced) and Harbin Park (intermediate). I was very surprised how good the Kheener Park trail is! This is a great intermediate (almost advanced) track and a great workout!

The trail has a great mix of technical components and speed. It's very hilly and the actual trail is pretty tight. There are tons quick up and down areas where you drop ~5ft and then have to climb right back up. I'd say overall is more of a technical course. But if you want speed and thrills you can get it by bombing 3-4 huge hills. The huge hills are on the east and west ends where you can start. Then going from east to west you have a long downhill connecting east to the west. This is a wide space (20ft wide).

I thought the trail was well 95% well maintained. There was only one spot that really could of used some trimming. It is a tight trail overall, but after I read some of the comments I expected WAY worse. Not the case. A well maintained trail that was fine for my liking.

I started on the east end by the tennis courts, bombed the east hill to start, passed over the creek, turned right then bombed downhill all the way down to the west end. That satisfied my speed hunger....very fun. Once on the west side I climbed the south hill (west side has two massive hills to climb) then found an entering trail. I then weaved through the main bike trail mostly going west to east. I eventually hit the far east side and then started back west on different trails.

Overall, it's a fun technical course with some spots that you can generate some speed. It's hilly, challenging and best of all a great workout, which is what I like. You can easily ride for an hour and not get bored even if you have to repeat some trails. Can't wait to go back!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cesars Creek by the far the hardest and most grueling trail in this area. You have an 8mile route and 12 mile route without repeating. You can easily go 16 miles with only some repeat of trails. It's technical and the hills you climb will crush your legs. It's difficult but it's fun. This trail really has it all. It does have more roots than any other trail I've been to....that's my only drawback.

Harbin Park is a good track with one of the best hill/s to bomb or try to climb. It also has a 3-4 ft tall man-made ramp that is blast to hit. You will get an outstanding workout, especially if you try to climb the main hill/s.

Summary:
It is much better now, they put signs on trees for the trail, there is a "main" trail + plenty of sepereate trails that hook up to various areas, there are nice smooth areas, rocky areas, small bridges and twisty technical areas, steep hills, creek crossings, etc. Actually pretty nice and if you keep your eyes open plenty of deer.

Recommended Route:
Any and all

Summary:
the trail is very soft right now. It is also muddy. It has more options than harbin park. It is the first time I have riden here, so I need to ride more to see how long the trails are. I rode the outside up to the powerlines into the back of the park. then down into the creek area. It was about 3 miles. See it is only 10 min from my house. It was not a bad trail. It is very hilly.

Recommended Route:
Harbin, Houstin, Doing it out doors

Summary:
I guess I'd call this my "home" trail since it is about 5 minutes away from my office. It isn't the best trail in the area, but for a quick ride after work it can't be beat. Some light maintenance work has been done recently and a couple of spots that were unridable are no longer a problem. It is surprisingly technical for the area, including one climb near the beginning that I've only seen one person make. Overall, it has a nice balance of climbs, downhills, and flats. The biggest downside is that it is poorly marked.

Recommended Route:
As listed in previous reviews, the trailhead is past the tennis courts and marked with a sign along the treeline.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hueston Woods (Favorite), Idlewild, Landen

Summary:
I previously reviewed this trail (see below). While I still feel that this trail is good for proximity to West Chester, Liberty Township, and Mason, etc, it is not as well maintained as it once was. The trail still offers a good workout and keeps the rider on their toes (albeit, it is a bit short - just ride it multiple times!) Many of the bridges are broken out as a result of wood that has decayed. The synthetic (high impact plastic) bridges are still in good repair. Root exposure is still minimal and I hope it stays that way. Riders can help prevent root exposure by not riding in muddy conditions. The directional signs seem to be placed differently every time I go here. This is probably the result of pranksters and declining trail maintenance. Cyclists, please stay off of trails that you know are for hikers only!! I do not want to lose the privelage of using this trail.

Recommended Route:
See below

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Harbin Park, Caesars Creek, Tower Park, Lake Hope, Landen
