Outstanding for suburbia location. Mountain biking consists of many short spurs, some very challenging. Trails are in good condition, a bit sandy right now. View of the river from the far western section is outstanding, it's better in winter. For as near as this park is to MSP and it's high quality, it is very uncrowded, as most of the traffic is in the dog unleashed section and in the cave section in the far west. Venture a little further and you will find some solitude in the midsts of suburbia.

Battle Creek IS the best riding spot within the Twin Cities. There is a lot more than 1 mile of trails, although many of them are closed or being closed due to erosion. The terrain is varied, but tends to be on the wide side for single track. Still, some excellent climbing and descending including technical sections. PLEASE obey all rules and stay off closed trails or we will lose this gem of a trail system for good.
