ABOUT SAW WEE KEE

Once upon a time, the park was a strip mine and piles and rows of mined earth were deposited around the property. That has turned out to be an exceptional gift for mountain bikers as most of the trails course around and over the lumpy and long-since reforested terrain, making for a truly unique riding experience for this area.

Local riders compare the park to an amusement park, and have named many trails after roller coasters: Vertical Velocity, Wildcat, Anaconda, Colossus. These trails offer short but sometimes steep climbs, lots of low rollers, quick turns, and winding decents. Overall elevation change here is minor, but the frequent climbs over the mounds give your legs a good workout nonetheless.

This is not purely a playground for those with well-developed leg muscles. There are trails for less-experienced riders too, like Cotton Candy and Lolligagger. And all riders can try the roller coasters trails, if they don't mind dismounting from time to time.
