Terrace Oaks Professional Review and Guide

"This short trail is another favorite in these parts. Designed by local resident Gary Sjoquist, a tireless mountain bike advocate with a keen eye, Terrace Oaks is a gem in the heart of suburbia. This path shares park space with hikers, and each group has its own designated trail. The mountain bike portion is gnarly, hard-packed singletrack with loads of tight switchback turns through thick woods. Encroaching trees present steady challenges, grazing your handlebars every chance they get.

Toward the end of the loop are a couple of long, steep downhills on wider gravel trail that quickly deliver you back at the start. A short detour to a more technical section is available on the back half of the main loop. As its name implies, Terrace Oaks is loaded with mature oaks, along with maple and aspen and a barrage of low-lying shrubbery. It’s hard to believe you’re surrounded by urban sprawl as you make your way through the park. We are fortunate to have a refuge like this so close to home. Tread: Entire loop is mix of gravel and dirt singletrack."
