Local Mountain Biker, Bike Stolen.

PLEASE NOTE – HELP NEEDED: Calling all local sleuth’s and friends… help us keep an eye out for our buddy Nate Shipley’s Trek Bicycle Marlin 5 29’er mountain bike, which was stolen off his back porch on East Market Street. Here’s a photo of the bike, and it has egg beater clipless pedals on it. Please contact the police and let Nate know if you have any insight. Let’s help him get his bike back!

Trails Are Open – For Now

As dry as we have been the rain did the trails some good. There may be some greasy spots but overall the trail is good for use. However, there is rain in the forecast the next few days and we may need to close them down again. Keep an eye out on the website and our Facebook page for the latest details.

Trails are Closed

The good news is we have not had to close down the mountain bike trails most of the summer.  The bad news is we are closing them due to yesterday’s rain and the high percentage chance of rain today.

We’ll keep an eye on the conditions and let you know when they are good to ride again.  Remember ride dirt trails not mud trails.



Crossfit Haymaker will be hosting “Trial in the Trails” – Saturday, August 13

Please note that our friends at Crossfit Haymaker will be hosting “Trial in the Trails” on Saturday, August 13. Weather permitting, portions of the trails will be used in the morning from 10:30am – 11:30am. Sections near Robbie’s Ridge, the big bridge, and Black and Blue will be taped off for event purposes. The trails will remain open, however, please be careful when coming upon these taped sections, respecting volunteers and competitors. And be sure not to knock any tape down. Thanks for your courtesy!


With the humidity staying high, and another burst of rain on Thursday night, please remember that regardless of what the website and Facebook pages say, use common sense before heading for the trails. If it is wet, and you would be leaving ruts, or tearing up the top soil, refrain from walking, running, or riding on the trails. This certainly goes for during or even after a heavy storm – give the trails time to drain and dry.

When it comes to posting on the sites, we are all volunteers with other full-time jobs, so we may not be able to get out to the trails to do a thorough observation of conditions and then post/update as quickly as we’d like or you’d like. So, thanks for your understanding and patience.

Trails Open

We are opening the trails.  They have dried out nicely and are ridable this afternoon.  Look out for any fallen trees, we did have some pretty nice wind gusts yesterday afternoon.


Fat and Skinny Tire Fest 13 This Weekend!

Trails Closed

Due to the wet conditions the trails will be closed until further notice. In preparation for next weekend’s Fat & Skinny Tire Fest we may keep them closed longer to fully dry out and get some work done. Thanks for your patience and help in spreading the word!
