Review: This is a 3 mile trail that circles Clopper Lake. There's no elevation change although there are plenty of roots. Given the large number of hikers and runners that frequent this trail I would not recommend this trail for mountain bikers especially when there are soooo many other trails nearby.

Review: Had a fair amount of roots and a large amount of hikers. That said, it had great views, no real climbs, and I had a great time.

Review: I ride this trail during the Winter when Shaeffer and others are closed/not safe. It is fun. Go either clockwise or counter clockwise. Lots of views of lake. Lots of roots in sections. No climbs though. Takes 40 to 45 minutes to do circle

Similar Trail: Probably any Montgomery County park around a lake

Review: Great beginner trail and/or a warm up to hit before riding Schaeffer or any of the other singletrack trails in the area. Found some roots, no climbs to mention, and good views.
