The first in a series of new singletrack trails is now open at Lake Wedington.
While crews are still at work on several planned improvements to the area, we can confirm that a nice, new section is ready for riding.
We headed out this week to explore a bit, and here’s what we found.
We started at the paved parking lot on the north side of Highway 16 just to the east of the main park entrance at Lake Wedington. From there we followed the trail for about 5.7 miles until it crossed the highway and continued for another mile before ending at a second gravel parking lot. From there, it was just a half-mile ride along the highway back to the start.
It’s an easy, but fun ride with only about 200 feet of elevation rise on the singletrack portion. Nothing technical, just a flowy ride through the woods. Once you’ve crossed the highway, take the first left or continue to the right to finish early. You’ll notice in the video that we opted to ride across the lake dam and back before finishing the ride.
If you’re short on time, there’s also a 2-mile route that ends across from the same lot as the longer route.
There are a couple of trails still under construction, so don’t be surprised when the path ends if you decide to venture in those directions (see map below).
We’ve got a short video above with on-screen turn instructions, and some photos and the map below. Enjoy.
