There are bike paths, dirt roads, single tracks and bike parks around the lake. You can go for a mellow ride on a trail with great views of the area, or get your adrenaline pumping with some of the steeper, downhill trails. One of the most popular bike rides is where you can get a lift pass from a ski resort to take you to the summit from where you can ride down the dusty ski trails.

If you are a beginner you can choose trails where the land is flat without many obstacles, perfect for those who have come for mountain biking right off the couch. The most popular trails for beginners are the Fountain Place- where you have paved roads and slightly more difficult trials too. Angora Ridge which is a moderate trails has spectacular views and Twin Peaks are for those who are short on time. If you are a slightly more experienced biker, the advanced trails will put your skills to test. But if you want a real challenge, the Brockway Summit, the McKinney- Rubicon Road and the Marlette Lake trail, will test even the most experienced rider.
