Wadsworth Falls SP
Report Type: TA Report:
Trail Name: Wadsworth Falls SP
Trail Conditions: Excellent
Observations/Information: I hit Wadswoth for a quick hour's ride after River Highlands. The trails were in excellent condition amd improved by recent rain. The dirt was too dry before, even dusty, but now it is nice and tacky for improved traction and dust control. There are a few muddy spots on the carriage roads and a puddle on yellow and, although I didn't get there, the red trail off of four corners is probably a muddy mess, but that's it. Taco Bell, yellow/black, and Alex's trail are free of mud or puddles. Someone has done an admirable job of keeping the trails clear of sticks and even leaves in most places, and they looked well-ridden.
Only problems were some evidence of "rear wheel steering" on the steep slope at the end of Taco Bell, where it spills down into yellow/black. That could become a problem if it continues. I also found a really stupid little thrill line at the intersection of red and blue. I closed it off because it was unsustainable and, worse, could lead to a biker-hiker collision.
If you're looking for a place to ride around Middletown I'd recommend Wadsworth. The trails are in great shape
