Trail Description
About this trail
Two primary directional loops: Yellow - 7 Miles - Easy multi-use trail that is mostly level. Blue - 12 Miles - Moderate mostly singletrack trail with some bypass-able technical features. Dont expect any fast downhills or extremely steep uphills. Limited singletrack, some double, some powerlines. Nice lake to take a dip in. Excellent camping accommodations.

Night riding is allowed, but the park closes at 9:45pm.

Review: Rode the yellow trail I must say it was a bit confusing. The marks were not clear at certain points so we ended up backtracking a lot. It took us about 2:34 to finish ????????. Besides that is a fun trail and beautiful sceneries.

Review: Rode the 12 mile blue loop. Fun trail with various scenic lake views along the way. Nice trail markers at each major intersection. Trail was nice but nothing special in terms of features or difficulty, a few moderate climbs and some flowly downhill sections. Worth a visit if you're way out yonder

Review: Would be much higher if not for the overgrown poison ivy along much of the bike trail between the dam and the entrance. We had three young kids riding with us and that made for a lot of concern about one falling into it or even riding through it. When you consider that you have to pay a hefty bike fee for each rider the least that could be done is to ortho back the yard on either side of the trail in the summer.

Similar Trail: Haw creek but twice as long and a bit more difficult

Review: Fun, fast flowy trails. Mostly smooth with a couple decent climbs and fast downhill sections. Very nice campgrounds and facilities on the lake as well.

Review: Very good fun trail. I am an intermediate rider so this trail was a little tough but was glad to complete it. One of the best I've been on.

Review: Great trail system and well marked throughout. I only did the Tue-Thur-Sat direction, which featured some nice descents, climbs and areas to jump. Would love to go back and hit the opposite direction.

The only gripes I have with the trail are the way the state parks department maintains it (lots of pinestraw, no visible repairs) and money being charged. I have no problem donating and paying, but the money should be used for upkeep of the trail.

Review: I like this place for riding my single speed. Not a lot of climbing, not a lot of descending, but it will challenge your fitness level. I've always enjoyed riding here.

Similar Trail: Not sure

Review: Love this trail. Fast and flowing, but still some moderate climbing that will get your heart going. A lot of good extras with bypass options. They do close for it being wet way more often than necessary so definitely call ahead if you are unsure of the conditions. There is a parking fee and a fee to ride (though not much).

Review: Started on the Blue Trail and some how wound up on the Yellow Trail. Great down hills nothing real technical. Me and the kids had a blast! The trails are not marked real well, so I just made sure I kept the lake to my left to ensure we did not get lost.
