    We moved 2 years ago, but Mingo was a frequent and favored ride. We we just drove through the park 7/2 and took a look at the trails on foot. Besides beign incredibly muddy (that wet concrete mud) they looked about the same. We didn't have the time to take our bikes, although we were both would have loved to go around that loop again.

    In case someone reads this and decides to check out this hidden gem, I feel obligated to mention:

    - Mingo trails are multi-use (hike/bike/horse) with some posted closed to bikes.
    - Many of the trails were created by and for local equestrian enthusiasts.
    - Equestrian trail users pay for thier use, bikers do not.
    - Nobody has the told the local horse folks that we're bad neighbors, so let's keep it that way. Always yield to horses.
