Mountain Biking Lake Storey Trail System
#24 of 126 mountain bike trails in Illinois
Lake Storey Trail System is made up of various single track loops, connected at times by paved bike path or open grass sections. The trails traverse numerous drainages around the lake. They are tight and flowy with various wooden features added to keep things interesting. A large portion of LSTS traverses within feet of the lake edge, providing beautiful views while riding.
The park is open till midnight, so night riding is open all year long. Trials are meticulously maintained by a local group of riders all year long, regardless of season. They are built by mountain bikers, and used by riders and hikers a like. Trails are true single track, and built to be mountain bike trails. You can always bet the trails will be in great shape, and ready to rip! Call the local bike shop, Ride & Run, for trail conditions and any questions you may have. Lastly, as with any trail, don't ride when it's wet!
