Tight, twisting singletrack with quick climbs and descents. The trails cover a lot of topography to challenge any rider. Roots and loose rock add a technical edge to climbs. Trails can be linked in many ways to custom tailor your ride. The easiest trail can be reached by crossing the dam and following the blue loop. On the opposite side of the lake, Wilkin’s Way offers a scenic ride along the lake and provides access to several technical downhill runs.
