Description

The Loyston Loop trail is a family-friendly, flowy trail. This machine groomed trail is wider than singletrack, with no distinct obstacles and natural elevation changes provide easy to moderate climbs. The Trail has scenic views of Norris Lake, drains well, and withstands riding soon after precipitation events.

The trails are part of Loyston Point Recreational Area which provides hiking, biking, boat ramp, Lake swimming, camping, and RV hook ups. There is a camp store.
