Reagan Park

Average Rating:    (4.04 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 24

The park is 316 acres but filled with ball fields. Using the limited land and every inch of the wooded areas of the park; the guys that cut this trail made it a challenge for all. It has been a hidden gem for several years but is gaining popularity (dont screw it up). It is tough to peace together, made up of wooded sections between ball fields - If you can find someone who knows the entire loop you are in for a sweet ride. There are no huge hill climbs because the park is basically located in the citybutthere are some very short, steep descents. At the end of one of the steepest hills is a killer tabletop jump followed by a 2-3 ft drop into a creek. On the backside there is a section of log crossing that will wear down most riders. There is a section towards Reagan Parkway that contains some nice switchbacks and a fun, long, hilly, whop-to-do section. There are also several small rocky sections, some tight technical trail, many creek crossings, short steep behind-the-seat drops, roots and several jumps. Mix up the sections, ride it backwards for a new challengethis loop has it allbut lacks any huge climbs.

Trail Directions
There is no one main trailhead; it depends on where you enter the park. Get yourself to Medina, the main park entrance is off of St Route 3 (Weymouth Road), dont park there, go several hundred feet to the light and take the service entrance. There is a parking lot at the bottom of the hill by the baseball field/RC race track, or follow the road up the next hill, past the service garage and park down the hill by the soccer fields. You are now surrounded by the trails and several trailheads. You can also access the park through a new back entrance off of Reagan Parkway, which connects route 3 with route 42.

Summary:
Nice flowing trail and well maintained but not very challenging. This was my first time out on this trail and was VERY hard to follow do to very little markings on were to go.It has lots of roots and little rock gardens.No challenging climbs but I'm coming from riding Mohican and Vultures knob.I can see why there is TT events here very fast.I ran into several hikers with dogs and runners on this trail witch made for a more cautious ride (bummer). Be very careful and pay attention because you will run into other riders riding it the opposite direction.I will be back but will definitely map it out so not to stop to find witch way to go.Great for novice or intermediate riders looking on starting out in the sport of mountain biking.If you ride all 4 trails your looking at around 10 miles. I would rec. doing it twice to make it worth while and this is coming from a forty something clydesdale.

Recommended Route:
Start at Huffman or Reagan park and good luck on finding your way.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Mohican state park,Vultures Knob,Alum Creek phase 1 and 2, Dillon

Summary:
Pretty bad ass. I have ridden all three trails, and really love Reagan trail. Its fast and has curves. It only gets better with time. Very few technical parts, so its fairly easy riding. But for the 20 min drive to get there, its fantastic. I would, and have, riding this trail when ever you get the chance. I would ride Hoffman trail to get a good taste of what the park is all about. Then take a right when done with it and head for the River or Reagan trail. Took about 2 hours to ride the whole park once. Stopped alot and shot the sht with friends and people riding by.

Summary:
If you live within an hour or so of Medina, this place is definitely worth the trip. It's super short, so expect to do a few laps, but there's just enough variety to keep you from getting bored. This year's re-routes definitely help avoid head-ons with other riders. Larry and the rest of the trail building team are doing a great job, so make sure you thank them when you see them.

Recommended Route:
I always start on the Huffman side and do a lap there before heading to Reagan. Start by the restroom and go around the whole park counter-clockwise. When you come out the far end of the river trail, head up through the field, cross Reagan Parkway and you'll see the paved path leading into the park. The real trail entrance is on the left just past the fence.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Findley State Park- faster, longer, a little more technical
Vulture's Knob- no joke, don't miss it

Summary:
Extremely fun trail, not very technicle but plently to keep you on your toes, not super fast, but quick rolling and will test your cornering skills, plenty of fun stuff like rolls, and a couple of small drops, many roots and ruts also make things interesting. Even though the trail doesnt excell at anything specifically it is a great overall trail with a little bit of everything. I was easily able to complete the loop twice on my brothers first bike which is too small of me (its a crappy Triax PK7, a 100 dollar walmart bike). Its tons of fun and a weekly trip for me :)

Recommended Route:
i entered at the service enterance by the skate park/ RC track, and started my ride on the right side of the road that leads to the parking lot.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Vultures knob and west branch
