Theres two main trails at Lums Pond. The inner loop that hugs the pond which is a bit funner with more flow than the other. The second is the outer loop which is used by horses as well, so its much longer and flatter than the inner loop.

Neither trail is very challenging but its good for a quick couple of loops around the pond.

Access Info

Most of the main parking lots have access to the trails.
