Summary:
I just rode this trail for the first time yesterday. I'll admit that my hopes were not high based on what everyone says about it. Yeah, it's short. No, it's not technical or hilly. But it's really fun. The build quality and flow are excellent. No brakes, no shifting, just pure speed and lots of turns. 5 laps was just enough for a light workout. Plus it's only like 15 minutes from Mike's Place in Kent. Worth the drive from the west side just for that.

Recommended Route:
Only 1 way. Ride fast.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
West Branch isn't far, and there used to be some kick-ass BMX trails not too far away- by a KOA campground, but I couldn't give anyone directions anymore.

Summary:
My husband and I had previously walked parts of this trail, but biked it today for the first time. The mud was a problem, but I loved it! We plan to ride this trail often. One of the best parts was riding through the tall grass meadow...wish we had the camera. We may just be beginners, but i think this trail has the potential to be exciting each and every time we ride it! Give it a try!

Recommended Route:
Take Market Ave. north through Hartville. Park entrance located right beyond Congress Lake Country Club.

Look forward to trying out some new ones in our area thanks to this web site!

Summary:
I just bought my 1st MTB 3 days before going to this trail. I am in descent shape but have not been on a bicycle in more than 15 years. (background info) The trail was a lot of fun. If you blinked you would hit a tree. lots of twists, turns, up, downs, rocks, logs.... I will admitt, I stoped about 3X to catch my breath (for less that a minute). Eventhough it rained 2 days ago, the mud was so thick it looked like... it was bad. In some areas my pedals were sinking into the mud, about 150 feet of the trail was in this condition. The worst part being the open field about 1/3 of the way through the trail. The trail is too much for my 6 year old (and probably my wife) but it is close and I will return (durring a drought). From the time I started the trail, loaded the bike back up on the car and ate lunch it was less than an hour. Lost 1 star for the mud, more than 6' deep in some areas!

Recommended Route:
Check the Stark Parks website.

Not yet! Going to try Bear Creek today (if the rain holds out)!

Summary:
This is a fast, middle chain ring trail. Total distance is 3.7 miles for the loop. There are a few log piles to cross for obstacles. The best part about it is the flow through some tight turns. 3 flamers because it is too short.

Recommended Route:
The directions above are WRONG. Follow 619 East until it turns into 619 E/43 SOUTH. Continue maybe a 1/2 mile and turn left (North) at the light where 43 splits off to the right(South). This is where the first poster mistook this road for 43 north.

Summary:
The trail is alot of fun, i plan to bring my wife to try it out(she is a first timer) The first section flows along smoothly with a few tight turns and log hops. Then you get a nice ride through the edge of a field that leads back into a pine forest. After a few small climbs you get to cruise around some tight turns and over some more log hops. Then you cross a couple creekbeds, one has a bridge the other is a nice fast hill. There is one sweet log hop that is huge...butt the approach is well made so you clear it easily.. I plan to return many times....

Other recommended trails in the same area:
West Branch, Beaver Creek, Pymatuming, Mosquito Lake, Poland Woods
