Description: From the post and rail fence near the kiosk, begin this scenic and challengingly rugged, hiking-biking, single-track, dirt loop-trail. You won’t find any long climbs here, but other challenges include close trees, steep slopes, rough ruts, roots, and rocks. Experts may not be overly challenged, but all levels of riders will get a good workout. You will traverse an amazing variety of habitats including cedar and hardwood ridges, young oak woods, towering pine stands, and open grassy inlets. As you ascend to peaceful, high points overlooking beautiful lake vistas, or descend to quiet, sandy, back coves along the lake shore, watch for birds, deer, snakes, and other wildlife. During the warm summer months there is a cool breeze from the lake and access to the water for a swim.
