      6 miles of single track that is very well maintained and entirely wooded, except for one small loop by the parking lot.

      A fairly tough climb to start off with, but once you get in the single track rolls along with some good switchbacks. The lake loop was a lot of fun, pretty fast going down and a decent climb coming back up. The downhill section I rode on my way out had lots of big swooping turns, some good jumps and log pyramids off to the sides, and was super fast and fun. There is a jeep trail that runs through the middle of the trail system (its an even tougher climb going up this road but it is fairly flat at the top), and you can get to just about any part of the trails from it. There are also campgrounds at other parts of the lake, as well as a boat ramp, so it can make for a really fun weekend.
