Appropriately named, Hidden Valley Park features climbing and twisting singletrack situated in deep, yet hidden ravines. Currently the maintained trail is a 3 mile loop that follows the natural contour and terrain of the old growth woods.

There is an additional mile of trail currently under construction in this 195 acre park, with many more in the planning stages.

Access Info

Take Interstate 435 to the Parvin Road exit and proceed west 0.5 mile. Turn left (south) onto Bennigton Road. Stay on this for a third of a mile and turn right (west) on to Russell Road. Look for the parking lot on the top of the hill on the right.

       Great flow and a great place to learn how to ride fast. No rock gardens with plenty of pump opportunities to keep things moving. Clockwise gets you some fast decents; especially leading into the roller coaster section. Counter or anti-clockwise you'll have suttle climbs with 1 or 2 tough ones, short and sweet though. Flow remains throughout.
