Explore Washington Township Park’s Various Mountain Bike Trails
One of the best things about this time of year is the Washington Township Park. Sitting on top of 160 acres that weave in and around trees, there are a number of different trails to enjoy. Whether someone wants a more wilderness feel or an urban walk about, the Washington Township Parks offer many options.
The White Lick Creek Trail is a smooth asphalt paved path that is perfect for a city bike ride. On the other hand, travel the mountain bike designed trails that offer a little more adventure for the outdoorsy person. There are upper and lower portions of the park that are spread out across the acreage.
Hoosier Mountain Bike Association (HMBA) built the mountain bike trails, offering various levels such as single-track trails, high grasses on an undeveloped trail, and more intense treks for experienced bikers. According to the Washington Township Park website, each mountain bike trail has a sign at the trailhead indicating the level of difficulty required to safely ride each of the trails.
Some of the trails contain specially enhanced, man-made features that are going to make the experience even more exciting. The park website explains that many of their mountain bike trails are one directional, so bikers need to be aware and watch for “do not enter” signs while they are riding.
