I ride this trail, hike this trail, run this trail, they've really improved since the tornado, actually in just a few months they've really come a long ways. Very fun for beginners, Harmony's trails are more advanced but too far for me. A lot of tight turns and very challenging even without hills.The scenery is nice.

Angel Mounds got hit hard by the tornado in 2005 but is starting to make a comeback. Several people have been maintaining the trails and building new ones, and as more people start riding out there a nice smooth line is starting to develop. One new bridge has already been constructed and another one is in the works, along with some new trail options. Right now the main loop is around 2.5 miles but that should be growing soon. Local DNR has been very open to letting bikers work on the trails and build 'features'.

Park at the levee and take the first entrance, left or right. I like riding in a figure 8 so I hit every section of trail at least once in each direction.

Was there last week and I had forgot about the tornato over a year ago. It basically took out everything south of the levi. Theres a few trails left but once you go back about 100 yards every tree is down. Looked like theres been some work clearing a trail through everything but you cant ride far. I used to ride here years ago and they weren't bad. I liked them cause they were close.

The Angel Mounds trail system was severly effected by a tornado that came through the woods in November of 2005. It is completley unrideable as of right now due the numerous trees that were knocked down. This is basically a rest in peace trail. It will take
significant work to repair.

i like the river trail because there are lots of pretty places on the trail. there are lots of nice jummps and it's not to easy or to hard for me. i like because you can go around logs that my dad can jump but i can't. little kids who have bikes with gears and stuff can have a great time. i have a great time. i have a diamondback that has gears and you can go very fast on it but sometimes the sides of my handlbars get caught on trees cause they are curved up. we are going to take the handlebar sides off. when you get to the river you can walk on a dead tree and you can eat your snacks there if you bring any. i always have a great time riding there.

The trails are mainly flat. They are tight in some areas(trees). There are some fallen trees that require some expertise on crossing and staying on the pedals (no I have not quite mastered them all). This is an exellent place for beginners and those not wanting to get to crazy. It is a good place to start getting into shape. My only complaint is the follage overgrows onto the trails in some places.

Customer Service

See Above. There are many trails entering and exiting at the levee and the trails cross each other in the woods. They do lead back to the river which provides a nice view (but not always a nice smell).

This is, as everyone else has said, for beginners. I took my girlfriend to Scales before this,and, needless to say, she had a hard time. This trail, however, allowes more extended rides than scales.

Customer Service

Enter the parking lot by the overpass, then ride the levee for about 300 yards or so. Then take a right into the trails.

Fast, fun singletrack. Not very technical but enough tight turns to keep it interesting. The trails on the south side of the levee will all lead you to the river. In the early spring and late fall it can be very wet with 2 or 3 washouts. lots of roots in the winter. This is a great trail for beginners. Advanced riders can roll fast enough to make it challanging. Enjoy the ride.

Customer Service

Park under the overpass on Pollak rd. Ride east on the levee to the designated trail on the right.

The trail is very flat. There are no obstacles whatsoever. It is a good trial to take your kids on, or for an extreme beginner. If you follow the trail all the way down you have a nice view of the river. It is a nice walking trail

Customer Service

Take HWY 41 south from the expressway. Turn left on to Pollack avenue. Follow past green river road. Go under the underpass and make a quick right. Turn immediately onto the levee on the left. Ride bike on levee untill the trail appears on the right.
