Mountain Biking

mg_mtn_lake_015

The Mountain Lake Conservancy manages 2,600 acres of mountainous terrain that encompasses a very unique ecosystem due to an average elevation of over 4,000′. More than twenty miles of fern-lined trails on the property are now open to the public for biking year-round.

Due to this high elevation, these trails are a perfect place for mid-summer riding. Temperatures are typically 10-15 degrees cooler here than at nearby Pandapas Pond Recreation Area.

There are also over 35 miles of public fire road and jeep track accessible from the new trail access. Perfect for endurance training or long rides with friends, the jeep trails are rocky and can be technical with hard climbs and super fast, rocky descents. The Butt Mountain Loop is a local favorite!
