This a circular trail around Tobyhanna Lake. Great views of the lake at the start
and end of the ride with a wooded section between. Improved trail, fairly flat
and fast.

The Lakeside Trail starts and finishes in the main parking lot and can be easily
found by following blue blazes.

    Great short ride for the family. Follow the blue trail around the lake. My 7 year old handled the small hills and obstacles just fine. Plenty of shape for most of the trail, as it is mostly through the woods. There was an ice cream truck that the kids bought ice cream from when we made it to the beach.

    Very easy (gravel/dirt) until you get to the yellow trail. Yellow trail has lots of rocks and roots, especially after crossing the power line.

    Very beautiful but very flat and easy and short - about 6 mi. double track or more - there are some secondary trails which are more technical and singletrack, but I was with a girl that couldn't handle them, so i never checked them out.
