Mountain Biking Lake Whitehall

***   Add a review

Marked loop around the lake, all told about 6-7 miles depending on if you follow the loop directly. Singletrack branches off here and there which could add some miles to your ride. Sometimes it just braids around worn out parts, other times it's a small loop of its own. One side of Whitehall is pretty fun, the other is... well... interesting. Much of what you expect from a lake loop with mud, roots, rocks, and tight trails in patches. Some hills too. Eventually the trail hits a road and if you ride across it you'll find trail linking to Upton State Park. A trail near the parking area can link you to Hopkinton State Park. String em together and you have potential for serious miles

    The main trail around the lake is too technical, it doesn't matter how good you are, if you come here, you're going to be doing a lot of hiking.

    This place is extremely challenging. I went once on my hard tail and got about one third way through before my rear brakes blew. I can't blame the trails for that as the brakes were very old. I went back one more time on a friend's full suspension Aluminium Santa Cruz Bronson and was able to do a full lap. Some sections are flowy with lots of elevation changes and obstacles. There are a few hills that are extremely steep and will likely require you to hike up. I did not find any jumps or rollers but many stumps and some bridges which added to the technicality. It's worth riding at least once if it's not too far away. Enjoy!
