      This is a very hilly park, and all of the trails are either going up or down for the entire length, some of it in the shadow of the Six Flags roller coasters! Because of this steep terrain, large parts of these trails, mainly the low-lying areas, are slow to dry. Waiting 2-3 days after a rain is a good rule of thumb, except in very dry or frozen conditions. Please use your best judgment on deciding whether to ride them when they are wet.

      Many changes have taken place since GORC has reworked parts of existing trails, and built several new ones. The Dogwood loop was almost completely rerouted from 2004-06, and the DeClue trail has increased its length by nearly 2 miles, including the rerouting of some unsustainable fall-line sections.

      There is also a new section of singletrack on the Eagle Valley trail behind the Visitor Center which opens up a variety of new possibilities for exploring the park.

      Due to the number of trail features, and its rocky surface, DeClue (6.7 miles) is considered a fairly technical place to ride. Expect a tough workout, and some sections that may require hike-a-bike (for short runs). If you like choosing your lines, fast narrow descents, and rocks to test your skills, then you'll love this trail. Dogwood (2.6 miles) is fast and flowy, with a banked s-turn, and some rocky spots thrown in to keep you on your toes. Eagle Valley (3.4 miles) is chat-covered doubletrack with the exception of 0.3 miles of singletrack behind the Visitor Center, and a short section near the stables. The Green Rock now shares a large part of its length with the DeClue trail. Its total length has increased to 14.5 miles, of which 7.8 are in Greensfelder.

      All of the trails in the park are open to hikers, bikers, and equestrians. Trail traffic often includes horses, so be careful and courteous when encountering equestrian traffic. Always dismount your bike and go off the downhill side of the trail. For the most part though, this park is not heavily used. Make sure and take the bug spray in the summer.

      If you want to "taste" Greensfelder before diving in, ride the Dogwood trail first. Depending on how you choose to ride the loops, you can get in rides from 8 to more than 18 miles just on Dogwood/DeClue/Eagle Valley.
