Needing to rehab a torn hamstring suffered in another sport and unable to ride at the moment, I decided to hike the Muscatatuck Park trails to regain some strength in the injured leg.
What I discovered was the excellent progress that has been made on building new trails in the park. It's obvious that much thought and hard work has gone into the trails and, as an occasional biking visitor there, I'd like thank the trail crews for their hard work in building and maintaining the trails and giving all of us another excellent place to ride.
I've enjoyed the steady progress that's been made on the trails in recent years and remember the original trails that seemed to go straight up one ridge and down the other. It's not that way any more as well contoured, bench cut, and bermed turns have gradually replaced the original trails. It appears to me that all the new trails need now is a lot of bike use to finish them up (when it's dry of course).
So, if you haven't ridden Muscatatuck in a while, you should plan a visit there soon. It's another small gem in the wealth of places we have to ride right here in southern Indiana. It's a fun place to ride and technical and challenging enough to keep it interesting. Check it out if you haven't already.
