Great trail. Great people. Horrible and hateful local vendors. The trail has a moderate difficulty level, and there are limited accommodations (at the time I was there). Check their web site for current info.

We attended a mountain bike race last Sunday, in which our granddaughter was riding. She & our son both said it was a difficult and in parts, technical course. I am happy we did not stay there in our RV.

Enjoyed a great trail race out at RHR. This was one of the most beautiful parks I've seen. great trails (challenging on foot) Most trails dip in and out of ravines all day long.

The owners are investing in this campground/bike trail in SMITHVILLE. Please, Trip Advisor, move it to a Smithville heading.

Great place to go for a long ride. You could easily spend 4 hours riding around at this place. Be sure to stop by the saloon for a beer and cheeseburger on your way out.
