Single and mowed double track. With multiple intertwining loops. This trail is used heavily by horses. Mountain bikes are welcome and the trail is challenging. Trail is relatively unknown to Ohio mountain bikers. The park is part of the Licking County Park system. Trailhead is 30 minutes from Columbus.

Summary:
nice place but horses suck and they're everywhere. everythings muddy almost all the time but when it's dry there's some fast, steep, short downhills.

Recommended Route:
circle through all the fields and just go into the trails you see. you can spend hours here.

Summary:
This place can be confusing at first so get a trail map at the bulletin board.It is really just a bunch of fields linked by a few trails that criscross a small stream that is wooded.Some of it is unridable because horses have mucked it up.There is a nice strem crossing and a few good places that are fun.

Recommended Route:
the routes are numbered.@0 and 19 are the creekcrossing.Route 17 at the post go into the woods is the nicest single track to the 16 post then work your way to the 13 fun downhill jump the log to the creek again.

Summary:
I rode this trail in August '03. If there's no maps at the trailhead its a little confusing. There are trail markers on posts but no arrows. Trail was a bit pockmarked from horses. Some areas that were wet were unridable due to the horses. A couple really cool stream crossings. Warning: there is a lot of grass here. There's basically a bunch of fields with a grass strip around them where you ride to duck into the woods and follow the trails that lead out to another field. Great scenery but for the hardcore mtbkr might be disappointed.
I don't think that I rode the whole place so I can't say too much about the place. Check it out for yourself.
Nice bathroom at the trailhead. Water pump is available to wash off any mud! Don't spook the horses.

Recommended Route:
Take 161 east, then follow the 36/37 signs to take a left (north). You will head up to Alexandria a couple miles. Take a right at the first light. Go about 2 miles and it will be on your right.

Summary:
This place is just awesome. It's beautiful. I reccommend it a lot.

Recommended Route:
Go down the trail to the left of the trailhead, the one that goes downhill. If you follow it down you can cross the stream on the stepping stones, but watch out because it is very slippery. It's really nice back down in there inthe foresty area, and you can walk around by the stream.
