Mountain Biking Lake Hope State Park

Quite possibly the best singletrack in OH. Well maintained trails and very flowy. Low on the technical side, but the flow and speed you can carry, coupled with the relative distance of the loops (25 miles or so of pure singletrack) make it darn near impossible to beat in OH. Have fun!

Getting there
Take OH-56 (Union St) out of Athens, OH about 12 miles, then turn left on OH-278 for another 5 or so miles. The park is on the right, look for signs to the campground where you can camp and jump on the trail from your site, or park in next to the giant furnace on the right off of 278 and ride in from the Hope Furnace Trail.
