Welcome to the mountain bike trail at Deam Lake State
Recreation Area. The bike trail consists of a loop known as
the "Yellow Trail", and is shared with horse riding enthusiasts.
The loop is approximately 6.0 miles in its entirety. The
east side of the trail is gravel and is mostly flat. The west
side of the trail winds through wooded areas and is gravel
and dirt. It offers several moderate hills, but no jumps or
obstacles. Cyclists should park either in the overflow lot just
past the entrance gate or in the Day Ride parking lot. The
Sunday before Thanksgiving each year we will close the
gate to the campground road just past the Day Ride parking
lot. Cyclists should access the Yellow Trail at the NW corner
of the lot. We want you to have a great time! For enjoyment
of all our visitors, please keep a few things in mind:
• Mountain bikes permitted on the Yellow Trail ONLY.
• Cyclists will be sharing the trail with horseback riders and
hikers. Right-of-way should always be yielded to people
on horseback.
• Currently mountain biking is prohibited anywhere else in
Clark State Forest, so check your maps carefully to make
sure you stay within the designated Yellow Trail at Deam
• Always be sure to wear orange during hunting season!
