      Dry and clear. This is entirely double track - very little technical riding. Recommend riding counter clockwise.

       This 19km loop is a well marked tour through the park. It's more level than hilly, but don't be fooled: there are ups and downs that require an effort. In that sense, it's not a "family friendly" trail: it requires some stamina and skill. You also might need to have the fitness to keep on going without rests, if only to keep the bugs off. Not much in the way of technical challenges, but still enough to keep you focused: this is not a gravel road; yes, there's some easy double tracks, but most of it is single track. The forest is very nice. There are few views of the lake. Definitely worth riding, if you happen to be in the area, but probably not worth a long drive, unless you also want to camp, swim, and enjoy the provincial park. Speaking of which, a nice conclusion to the ride (in much of the year) is to take a swim in the lake. Also: there are private showers for you to enjoy at the end of your ride/swim. Combining the ride with a swim and a picnic could make Silent Lake well worth your time.
