Having ridden this when it was first built (including the time trials in the summer) and then again recently, I'm very impressed by the way the trails have held up. This has always been a gem in the middle of the city. Mother is still a mother, especially now that I can't make it up her at all!!

The section at the top of the hill is great. Twisty singletrack weaved through a beautiful section of woods. All of it is great really. Kudos to CORA?, BioWheels, and especially the city of Fairfield for creating this!

We went in September and all of the colorful leaves across the woods and down into the valleys only made the experience even better.

Up the hill, into the woods, and through the top part first, then follow the route on the map to the older section of trails for the harder loop ending in Mother. You'll understand when you get to her because the first words out of your mouth will be ...

I tried this trail out for the first time, I wish I would have known about it sooner, awits less then 20 minutes from my house I like it almost as much as Hueston Woods which is 45 Minutes away. The trail seems to be well maintained with a few obstacles. It may be a little easy for the expert rider, but for someone like myself beginner to intermediate its a fun ride.

Customer Service

I did the Orange Route which is the longest, will be trying out the others in the coming months.

I just moved back from Atlanta and I must say that when dry, this place compares to some of the better maintained stuff in the Blue Ridge mountains in northern Georgia. Not very technical, but a fun ride none the less. Tight twisties that you can fly on, but remember there may be walkers or runners as this is a city park. There is a downhil that you can tear a** on if you have a decent rig. Other than that, a great work out trail. Needs more work though. Maybe some high banks and a few jumps. Teter totter?

Park at the top of the sled hill. Ride to your direct right and follow the trail that direction.

The map is incorrect Harbin is in Fairfield,Ohio not Kentucky. Anyway there are about 6 miles of tight twisty singletrack trail and and I would say about 70 percent climbing flows good and can be alot of fun but don't ride when wet. Very nice park.

This trail was way too flat and boring. No obstacles, no climbing, no downhill.

Ive been riding trails all over southwest Ohio, I had no clue that this trail sat just a few miles from my house,
dont know how that happened,
just yesterday i took a rocky mountain full suspension on this trail,
it was crazy fun,
those who dont think this is a technical trail, where do you ride?
it has parts on it that are down right scary,
the open down hills are fast and fun, the climbs will take your breathe,
i'm talking granny gear!
however the climbs are getting very rutted from rain wash out.
reminds me of the good old days at Butler sate park.
watch out for the deer and have fun,
very close to the highway, easy access and lots of fast food available

The trail is quick hard pack that is rather smooth. It doesn't offer much other than that. More experienced riders might find it a little boring as it doesn't have very many obstacles other than a killer hill. I'm not sure when they added the new stuff as I have been out of the area for awhile, but it follows suit with the rest of trail. It adds to the value but purely by adding miles in my opinion. I don't want to knock it because it is a good trail. I just ride it for a nice easy ride ride to recover. Whatever the case just get out there and ride.

I really like this trail. It contains some nice single-track which can be difficult to find in the Cincinnati area. The orange loop contains a killer climb not far from the bifurcation with the green loop. My only complaint about these trails are that they seem to be getting alot of root exposure. This is no doubt due to inexperienced riders doing excessive skidding and other cyclists riding these trails when they are too muddy. Please do not ride the trails when conditions are muddy. It might be fun but it is not good for the overall condition of the trail. I want this trail to stay in good repair because I enjoy it and would like my daughters to enjoy it when they get older.

Customer Service

Either loop is a blast.
