Mountain Biking Lums Pond State Park / Swamp Forest Trail

****   Add a review
#5 of 22 mountain bike trails in Delaware
#1,890 in the world

(Description from the website) The Swamp Forest Trail loops around Lums Pond through fresh water wetland forests of Black Cherry, Sweet Gum, and maple. The trail links to the campground, boat launch, disc golf course, dog training area, nature center and picnic areas. Hikers will follow gentle terrain over a packed earth or crushed stone surface and cross over many elevated boardwalks and bridges.

Very fun little trail a few cool elevated walkways and tight areas make for an interesting ride, but not technical to the point to scare the novice rider. Definitely a great place to start, and the views of the pond are amazing!! Lots of fun.
