Beans Bike Park - Trail, New Philadelphia, Ohio

Beans Bike Park - Trail, New Philadelphia, Ohio

DESCRIPTION

Recognizing the need to provide access to all levels and abilities, this facility offers the features that make it enjoyable for all levels. Mastering single track takes skills not normally used in everyday riding. Thats why the mountain bikers who designed Beans have constructed a gentle, obstacle free, clearly marked, wide beginner loop that leads to the technical offshoots that provide stunts, teeter-totters, and behind the seat drops that experts and novices have come to expect and enjoy. When you cant muster up the energy for the Pine-Hill climb, use the unique trail marking system to take the bypass, catch your breath, regroup and plan your attack on the next lap. Open riding is available 365 days a year, with a race series making its debut in the spring of 2001. By the way... this place has an intense, district 12, motocross course available, check out beansroadraceway.com and/or pitracer.com for more information on MX. This makes Beans Bike Park a great place for a weekend getaway of two-wheel off-roading, offering parking, bathroom facilities, P.A. system, Motocross Track and mountain bike trails. Get ready to challenge yourself; soon you will be able to bring your Motocross and Mountain bike to Beans Road for a great day of fun!

These trails have not been maintained for about five years. It used to be awesome cross country. Too bad.

Drove out there on a whim to check out some different local trails. Easy enough to find, talked to the owner before we rode. According to him - "the trails are marked, have fun." Neither statement is legitimate. There is no way that he has been out to check on them in...at least 5 years, judging by the growth into and over the "stunts." The actual trail is blocked by a downed tree that looks as if it has been there for years, and it is in such a location that circumnavigation is nearly impossible. This place looks like it was really something when it was originally built, and then nobody ever maintained anything. Don't waste your time, there's nothing to actually ride.

I just came back from Beans. I recently moved to New Philly and I've been looking for some good riding in the area. This isn't what I'm looking for. Calling this place a "mtn bike park" is a little generous. There are a few stunts, but this place is really not designed for that kind of riding. I couldn't imagine someone bringing their big-hit bike and suiting up in armor to ride this place. It'd be a huge disappointment. Also, the trail is not singletrack; it's double track. Right now it is 100% covered in leaves and the roots are wet and slippery. I read somewhere that the trail was 6.5 miles long. If it was longer than 3 miles, I'd be surprised. I'll probably never go back.

i don't know if this trail is ridable at other times during the year, but right now it isn't going to happen. just tried to ride the mountain bike course. the place looks like it hasn't been touched in a while. i made it up a big hill, wound up in a field and figured i missed my turn. so i turned around and went the way your supposed to and made it about a hundred feet before the trail became so choked with sticker bushes i gave up. unless you have a machete in your camelback i'd try somewhere else.

If you like up hill switchbacks this is the place for you. Built on two nice size hills that will give you a workout. Its a good loop that took about an hour and a half (including replacing a tube) on the green loop. Two no-brakes downhills were pretty fast. Beans is pretty well maintained and easy to get to.. If you have a full suspension take a look at the sick trails course! I have some pics on www.geocities.com/nelsonpsu/BikeReviews.htm

the turn off of 250 is by a church and a crappy Inn. Look for the BEANS sign and continue down the road. You can't miss it.

A real gem in hilly ,East Central Ohio! Shall return again when it dries. The day I went it had been awhile since the last rain so it was 95% dry. Well executed loop and very disorienting. Nice variety of woodlands and fields. The sign posted three trails, but I became confused du to bad signage. Impossible to get lost however........just stayed on the trail that left the p.lot. (clockwise) The skinny bridges off to the sides of the trail are insane! I dont believe this 40 year old will partake.

Check this place out. Www.BeansBikePark.com The stunts are insane. 10' drops to 25' gaps, skinnys and more to come. These stunts are built by guys who go out and ride BC every year. These guys know what they are doing.

This is a sweet trail to go and cruise on and still get some technically challenging spots. It was a good price too!

The trail didn't live up to all the hype that I had heard about it. I was expecting a trail very similar to the knob, but found one more like west branch. There isn't anything very technical about the xc loop just a lot of climbing followed by not so interesting downhills. The trail was REALLY muddy, so if you plan on going bring the right tires. Overall its a good work-out but if you're looking for something that will challenge your bike handling skills this isn't the place.

I rode the XC trail on Memorial Day in 2001. The loop took about 45 minutes, but I was following a race lap (some section were cut out). Just like everything else in Ohio this spring...it was wet. Other than that, the course is well laid out with a lot of good climbing switchbacks. Good mix of technical and fast parts. Costs $4 and you have to sign a waiver form.
