The Perry Lake Bike Trail was designed and built specifically for serious mountain biking (advanced skills). Most area riders refer to the trail as "physical" not "technical" The trail consists of many hills, tight turns, off camber sections, fast trails and technical rocky sections. Trail rating is moderate with areas of difficulty. The trail is well marked and maps are available at the trail head. Currently there are 19 miles of single track trail and 2 mile of old abandoned camp ground roads.
