MetroParks Mountain Biking Area Trail Head

About this Location

This facility features the area’s first fully sustainable trail system designed to International Mountain Biking Association standards, specifically for mountain bike use. The area features great terrain and natural assets, including beautiful hardwoods, a rock-bottom creek, great hills, and a rock-filled ridge. Volunteers can help maintain this trail that provides over 8 miles of mountain biking opportunities for the most advanced to the novice rider.

In 2005, Five Rivers MetroParks entered a new era of public service when it established an active recreation initiative. The initiative was established to answer the region’s call for more recreational opportunities close to home. Constantly seeking new ways for people to get out and connect with the outdoors, Five Rivers MetroParks opened MoMBA (MetroParks Mountain Bike Area) in September of 2007 at Huffman MetroPark.

About Huffman MetroPark

See all hotspots at Huffman MetroPark

Huffman MetroPark is the result of the Miami Conservancy District and Arthur Morgan’s vision and commitment to meeting the needs of the population of the Miami Valley. The main purpose was the prevention of another devastating flood like the Great Flood of 1913, but they also saw the need for green space to be preserved for the public to enjoy. The result was five earthen dams built in the early 1920s, one being Huffman Dam. The land adjacent to the dams was retained by the Miami Conservancy district and in the 1930s the Civilian Conservation Corps built what is known today as Huffman MetroPark.

In 1967 Five Rivers MetroParks leased Huffman MetroPark from the Miami Conservancy District. Since then MetroParks has been managing the park, and many changes have happened. Huffman MetroPark now is primarily managed for natural diversity, providing the Miami Valley with a variety of outdoor activities.
