Quarry Park - TRAIL

Quarry Park - Trail, Madison, Wisconsin

Tons of singletrack filled with bending roots, rocks of all sizes. Huge insane drops with all of the above. In the clearings the have built huge dirt jumps. Just about everything there has a name for it. (ex) Elevator shaft, rollercoaster, ect. Quarry Park is the hang out for all of the big time bikers in madison.

Initial impression of the trails in madison... terrible. Suprised to say that. However, being from a big city, we travel 30 min to 1 hour to get to good riding areas.

My suggestion? Camrock / Camridge. It is 25 minutes from downtown Madison. Camrock Cafe ROCKED it for me. They had sweet 29ers for rent too so it made my vacation! Thanks Jeff n gang. Real helpful crew and what a beautiful little town, think Norman Rockwell built it. Let em know the motorcycle guy from Miami is how ya heard about it. Rubber side down!

Customer Service

Very fun trail,very technical trail it does take some experience to be able to enjoy it.There are some steep hills there,before you go down one make sure there is not a tree at the bottom waiting for you to crash into it and make sure it does not have blood stains.There I also found a giant banked turn so if you don't get your speed up that will be another fast way to go to the hospital.On the BMX/pump track there is a tree waiting for you in the 3rd banked turn also on the starting part of the BMX track there is a tree that splits the 2 lanes that I almost ran into.some of the trails there are pretty skinny.Do not bring a kid under 8-9 unless they know how to MTB.I found it easy even though I'm 11.The BMX track would be a great RC track,some time I will probably bring my Maxxis-ified Team Associated SC10.

Nice and technical, small trees everywhere and rocks make it interesting and very fun.

This place is also loaded with exotic, invasive plant species. Clean your tires before riding elsewhere.

Very cool, especially being in downtown madison. Cool singletrack on the outer rim. I've been there a few times and its definitely worth checking out. Not too technical but it is challenging in spots. Lots of jumps too.

I learned about this trail system after reading the trail reviews on mtbr. Yesterday was really the first day that I was able to ride 95% off all the trails. There's still a little snow on the ground. The trails that run east and west along the ridges are the most challenging. Sweeping turns with short, steep downhills and uphills. It's very important to maintain speed, especially if you're on a single speed (like me). Some of the trails are moderately technical. Rocks, roots, a few log rides, small table-tops, a few drops, all added sporadically throughout the trail system. It's not a very big network of trails but bigger than you'd expect. And, there's enough spider trails that you can always reroute yourself and make it more interesting. No doubt an excellent place to go for riders in Madison.

Customer Service

Take the outer trails along the ridges for a moderately technical, fun ride. Otherwise, follow the trails all over and explore.

nick   Cross Country Rider [Jul 22, 2007]

this trail is very different from any other trails i have ever ridden. there are short single tracks with random steep, short climbs and then unexpected drops on the other side. it is very technically challenging and like someone said before, be prepared to bail out a few times. i believe the area used to be quarried so that is why there are so many random rocks and piles of gravel. its great for the madison area because its close to campus and the trails are challenging. i would definitely recommend a helmet because of all the hills, trees and boulders. have fun and be alert on this one.

This trail is no 10 miles! Try 1 if you are lucky. There are some cool parts to this system that make it short but sweet. It's more of a BMXers paradise than a mtb trail.
