This is a good beginner to intermediate single track. The trail ends go out to rd.to return to parking lot. We always go back down the trail the wrong way. YEA! your not suppost to but we do.

Summary:
What a pleasant little secret! I was in suffolk fiending for some single track, when an old friend suggested Nike park. Not thinking much of the flatland, i thought that it would be a non event...i was wrong! This little beast is a busy, super fun rolling single track, especially when ridden fast! Although not hilly it has depressions for some fun "downhills" & nice tight turns & switches. Nothing technical, but way smooth & fun. The creators took full advantage of the topography & built a master piece that flows! Its a 2 mile run that spits you out on a baseball field that leads back to the entrance for another greedy repeat!

Recommended Route:
Repeat 4 times

Summary:
This was the place of my first mountain bike experience. My Motobecane fantom trail did great. Great work out! Good place to build skills. Kinda tight. I need to figure out how to stop popping wheelies. If you aren't careful you can run into a tree. Fun trail. I'm going back tommorow if it isn't too cold.

Summary:
Fun little trail, this was my first experience into mountain bike riding. This trail is alot of fun, went after it had recently rained so it was a little muddy, wet leaves and pine needles made it more challenging, there are some small liitle hills to climb, and go down, none of the climbs are challenging, as long as you carry your speed going downhill. There are some tight turns between trees, roots in those turns can be challenging, a small bridge or two, a few small log piles to go over, all in all it was fun. IT is marked that it is about two miles.

Summary:
This ride would be good either for a beginner or for a local just looking for a place to build some skills. It is flat twisty singletrack, nothing exciting. Some things of interest here though: A skatepark built over an old missile bunker, check that out for a minute. I also came upon multiple teens in the woods getting some action, so beware of the X-rated scene you may ride into. But most entertaining of all was the game that i titled "Feldspar". There were about 16 teenagers dressed up in football pads, wearing goggles and carrying wiffle bats. They would march towards each other and scream, "WAR!" and then selectively beat each other with wiffle bats and lacrosse sticks. Very, very amusing. Over all I was not very impressed.

Recommended Route:
You should ride this one as an out and back because of how short the trail is.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
York River and Waller Mill.

Summary:
Great little trail to touch up on the skills. A beginner can ride it but it is actually quite tough if you are going FAST. It is the narrowest trail in the area and covered with pine needles.

Recommended Route:
Take trail - ride road back and do it again.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The obvious: Waller Mill and York River
