Great trail for beginers, my 10 year old is starting to learn and he's doing great on this trail, even the singletrack.

Customer Service

Start at fish hatchery and try to ride the uphill singletrack, then continue downhill and loop back up park area before riding the park.

I actually ride these trails more than once a week. There are so many different technical trails to take - some of which you really have to look for to find. The trails here are very diverse and challenging. Some good logs to hop over too.

Customer Service

The gravel paths are nice but taking the side trails is more fun.

This is my home trail so I have to give it a 5/5... if you are a beginner you can stick to the gravel loop that parallels the canal on both sides. If you are more advanced there are numerous side trails that can keep you busy for hours (keep your eyes open... if the canal is on your right, look to your left for excellent climbs/decents). I recommend hooking up w/ someone who knows the area, or just explore it on your own.

Very Scenic flat trail with once or two small hills. Not technical at all unless you continue to the fish hatchery where a short patch of downhill and uphill ahs some degree of bump. rock and root.
nice trail to take a leasurely ride on but watch out for the people in the summer. The trail is wide enough to allow for many people and bikes, but you can get some speed up on the down hill and run into someone.
Overall very nice straight trail. Excellent for the beginner or someone out for an easy ride. Enjoy the scenery.

Customer Service

Start where ever you want and keep going!If you start at the fish hatchery and ride behind it up hill it is a better work out.

I always thought the Parway sucked until I road it with
with some people who know the place. There is a ton of
tough climbs and single track in that little area just
look to the out side of the main trail when riding there are about 20 trails off the main one that go to
the top and then back to the main loop.A real good ride
is to ride up south mnt. and do one loop of the single track at the parkway this will give you a 25 mile ride.
For a good thrill go to the mulch dump and do the 80 ft
drop into the parkway ( it's real fun at night )

Customer Service

It is a loop so you can start any were in the Parkway

This is a great trail if you have a friend or significant other you want to get into riding. The main road is gravel and generally level excpet for a few easy climb. Although there is a couple of semi-technical trails that run off the main course. Great for tutorials for inexperienced riders.

Customer Service

Start at the fish hatchery
