    Current Peoria trail conditions

    Hey guys,

    Can anyone in peoria or someone who's ridden any of the peoria area trails give a report on trail conditions? A buddy and I try to make it down there at least one weekend a summer from Chicago. Right now we are looking hitting up at least farmdale and jubilee.

    Thanks!

    Trails are in great shape in Peoria.. .and the weather looks fantastic for the next week or so.

    you can also post up at www.pambamtb.org before you head down for up to the minute trail conditions.... also... may I suggest Independence Park instead of jubilee?? If you've never done indy... you owe it to yourself.

    I'd agree, Indy is awesome - if you dont sprain your ankle one mile in
    Fun place though!!

    Hey thanks guys. I've never tried Indy. Is it in close proximity to the other trails? Part of the reason why we are going to Jubilee is so we can camp.

    Peoria was fantastic this past weekend. Rode Indy and jubilee on saturday, and Farmdale on Sunday. First time at indy, it was good, but seemed a little overgrown in some areas, and could probably use a little work... I'm not complaining though it was still fun. Jubilee was nice, and we camped there. Farmdale was the favorite again. Great conditions.

    Indy and Dirksen are practically across from each other separated by Marquette Heights and are both great rides. Farmdale is still the best, but I like indy/dirksen over Jubilee.
