The Cemetery Loop of the Lake Trail System is a quality mix of everything. From short, but fun, descents to semi-technical climbs, and a bit this and that. This loop is fairly small, but has many connectors that allow riders to mix and match trails in both directions to put together several unique segments and a decent amount of mileage. Riders will find many features from progressive jumps, to berms to rail, flowing trails, and log skinnies. There is a core group of riders who work to maintain and improve this loop along with the (East) Lick Creek segment and the Polecat segment. Don't believe the old reviews; these trails can link together 10+ miles of super fun, challenging, and flowing riding, and each trail segment is quite unique from the others. The Lake Trails used to be complete rubbish, but have been completely transformed in the last 2-3 years thanks to the hard work and dedication of a small group of individuals.
