Trail Description

The following photo gallery is of the eastern part of the Lake Trail and is typical of it. This is a circuit the kids or inexperienced users can head around on the mountain bikes as it is fairly flat and undemanding being on management roads. I have included it as some families may have inexperienced riders who could do this trail while the other more experienced riders do other trails in the park.
