This trail is a lung burner...no matter which direction you ride. Recent trail additions have been made to the Orange Loop that adds an additional mile of single track to this suburban gem! The main trail head kiosk can be found in the horseshoe parking lot. From there, head east into the first cut in the woods. This fire road will take you about 1/4 mile back before the entrance of the Orange Trail appears on your left. Follow this trail until it pops out into an open field. Ride straight north towards the woods in the back. There you will find the second entrance for the Orange Loop. Continue on this trail. About 3 miles in you will encounter the infamous Mt. Mother! Straight down to a hard straight up climb. Follow this all the way to the water tower to complete "The Presidential Challenge" or cut left to drop back into the Orange Loop.

Devou Park is a 704 acre parcel of land managed by the City of Covington. In and around the year of 2005, a few residents of Covington, Kentucky in conjunction with The Kentucky Mountain Bike Association (KyMBA) and partnership with the Cincinnati Off-Road Alliance (CORA) petitioned the City of Covington and the Devou Park Advisory Committee to allow an all-volunteer effort to install an additional 11-12 miles of trails to the already established 3 mile inventory within Devou Park. The project was approved and ground was broken in February of 2009. The first phase was completed in September of 2011.

10+ miles of single-track mountain bike trails in a 100-acre wood are the most recent addition to England - Idlewild Park. These are a four-tier route designed for riders of all levels. Beginner (half-mile), Intermediate (2-1/2 mile), and Advanced (5-mile) courses were supplemented with a Technical (1-1/2 mile) route. The trail is well signed to prevent getting lost in the dense woods. Several creek crossings, two picnic kiosks, and elements such as teeter-totters for advanced riders enhance the already beautiful area surrounding the trails.

Can you say old school trail! Only ten minutes from downtown Cincinnati, and it's probably the most technical trail in the Tri-State Area! It's almost all single-track, lots of rocks, roots, and off-camber sections. A true mountain biker's mountain bike trail! One set of trails go down near the Ohio River and then back up!

East Fork offers something for every rider and no one will ever be bored on any of the trails.

Then ride all seven miles to the Deer Run picnic area, turn around and ride all back! This 18 miles will leave you smiling and wanting more if your legs can handle it.

Trail building efforts led by CORA over the last few years. Great network of trails by the lake. There are a lot of hills on this trail to keep the trail rolling. Several descents are steep and the ascents can be just as challenging. Lots of leaves here in the fall to slip you up. Much of the trail is tight, twisty single-track lined with small trees. Varied terrain with a few sections that are difficult and technical.
