Rode the yellow trail (16mi) at the beginning of spring and was pretty impressed. Rode on a Saturday and was so pleased with the ride that I went back Sunday (I live about 1 hr. 45 min. away). Well worth the drive The trial was not overly technical but had a fair amount of root patches and rock gardens which required some vigilance. Climbs were numerous but not overwhelming. Down hills were flowing and rewarding. Will definitely go back!

This is a really good trail system. I rode this trail for the first time about a month ago and i've been back donw every weekend since then. It's not an overly difficult trail but it does provide enough challenge to not be boring. The climbs are nice and the downhill sections are awesome. The trail is very well maintained. I haven't even had to stop to pick up a dead limb thats fallen from a tree or anything. The trail has always been clear for me. All in all i would reccomend this trail to anybody that loves riding. Also if you need anything while your riding there is an awesome bike shop close by called truman lake bikes.

Trail has recently been lengthened to approximately 20 miles in total length. The trail surface varies from smooth hardpack to rocky singletrack. There are some good climbs and fast flowing decents. The trails drain well and can be ridden shortly after or even during rain. There are several good views of truman lake from the trail, with lake access from the trail being planned. All trails are well marked and color coded. Maps are available at the trailhead, or at the Warsaw Parks and Recreation office at the community building in Warsaw. There is one bathroom at the trailhead and no running water, so be sure to bring water along. Trail is very well maintained by the local bike club and is always being improved. If visiting during the summer months be sure to use a good insect repellant.

This is a great place to introduce someone to mountain biking. The trails shed water very well, the climbs aren't terribly steep and there is a little something for most everyone. I don't know how many miles of trail there are now, I will guess at around 15, but they are always working on improving and adding new trail. These trails recieve a lot of love, but there isn't a lot of money available so there is no running water at the trailhead. There is one port-a-potty at the trailhead, that's it, so plan accordingly. Some random thoughts; You will find some nice views of Truman lake in many places on the trail. The terrain is quite rocky so pinch flats are common here. The big rocks at the trailhead make a nice picnic table. This is just a fun, quiet place to ride.
