“Great introduction to mountain biking; scenic tour around Lake Fayetteville.”— Leslie Kehmeier
The route is a combination of singletrack traveling through open hardwood forests and grassy meadows and the paved bikeway around the lake.
The trail is easy, mostly smooth singletrack with a few roots here and there. There's not much elevation change except for a few shortcut options that dip down and up. Stay right at these intersections to follow the main trail.
Initially the route is in the trees right along the lake. As you travel east and approach the botanical gardens the trail crosses a bridge and transitions to open grassy meadows.
As you make the bend around the far north end of the lake, the trail jumps back into the forest near the big Lake Fayetteville sign. Enjoy a fresh section of pines before jumping out onto Lake Fayetteville Road.
The route finishes on the paved bikeway which travels along the Lake Fayetteville Dam. The final stretch travels over a large bridge across a spillway before reaching the starting point at the main parking area.
