Lot of singletrack going all over the place behind the South Park Fairgrounds Complex and up and around the Wave Pool too. Not to hard, but fun to ride on a daily/weekly basis. -Brady's Run is also a decent place to ride

Summary:
Haven't ridden it in a while b/c I moved. However, if you live close to South Park, you must ride there. It's a fun network of trails with some pretty good terrain, log piles and other cool stuff. Not the most technical but it's fast and fun.

Recommended Route:
I always started by the ice rink and went up the hill then made my way across the main road and back towards the wave pool. There are tons of trails and they all end up inside the park so don't be scared to explore the trails to link them together.

Summary:
Great System of trails. Some go from the VIP to the Wave Pool and down to and behind the horse stables. Other trails are located by the golf course. Fun twisty turrny single-track with many fun downhill. Some very fun log piles and a new tearer-totter are located by the golf course.

Recommended Route:
Start at the VIP and take the trail to the wave pool. Keep going straight at the trail head located in the corner of the wave pool parking lot. Go across McConkey road where you will see a single-track going up into the woods. This is a fun fast forest section with cool ferns that ends in a field. Continue to the corner of the field where it meets the fenced in area. Take this single-track to the bottom of the field where I head down to the trail with the log pile trail by the creek by the traffic circle. Take this trail to the field and cross the creek and go up the steep short uphill and cross the road. Take a loop on this section by the golf course and continue on the high side of the creek all the way back to the horse stables. From there you can go up the model plane testing area where numerous loops can be made. From there make I make my way back the VIP from the trail by the Girl Scout lodge and continue to the VIP.

Summary:
None of the trails are hard just convenient if you live close. The best trails there are behind the wave pool, im building more with jumps b/c there are not enough. Watch out for the horses on saturdays and sundays.

Recommended Route:
just ride everything at once, not much trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Mingo park is a little better despite the horses, no jumps though which sucks

Summary:
Um, dem trails is real good. Iffin it's bin raining, den it be real muddy. Not all that much many hills, but the lil ones be all slick and muddy like I said. Some dudes be puttin big logs all up on the trail, whats up with that? I think they was starting to build something, they look like big Lincoln logs on the trail.

Recommended Route:
start at the icey skating rink parking lot. follow trail by the creek, come out at 4-way intersection. Go left uphill to wave pool, trail picks up again in parking lot. It winds back down to another 4 way intersection. turn left and find the round about, turn right. trail picks up again about 100 yards on left going uphill.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Old Hoe gorge.
