      Banner Lakes is host to around 5.5 miles of singletrack. They range from easy to difficult. Most are tight singletrack through woods, or on top of the former strip-mine's tailings. They flow well and fast. Prepare for some short, challenging climbs and being rewarded with fast descents.

      Start at the parking lot nearest the entrance. Ride into the park on the main road. The entrance to Coal Miner's Daughter will be on your left.

      A recommended run starts with Coal Miner's Daughter, New Ed Beach, Missing Link, Corner Pocket, Riverside, and Extra Credit.
      AKA: Summerland State Park
