      The trails at Beaverdam State Recreation Area on Falls Lake are a lot of fun. In my opinion, they are easier than New Light--less steep hills, rocks, and sharp turns--but harder than Crabtree. Beginners who feel comfortable at Crabtree should definitely give Beaverdam a try. There will only be a few obstacles they'll want to walk. Intermediate and advanced riders will find Beaverdam a fast, uncrowded ride but still enjoy a good workout.

      Here's the details: The trails are rated beginner to intermediate and include three loops: a 2.6-mile outer loop, a 1.6-mile inner loop, a 2.4-mile west loop and more advanced 8.5-mile loop called South Loop.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country
