Family Friendly: Easy grades, wide, smooth trail surface, lots of interesting things to see.
The West Spur is a wide gravel trail that connects Backbone
to the west side of Lake Lehigh. It also connects to the Mountain Goats
and Lakeside West
The trail is about 11 feet wide, and is surfaced with fine limestone screenings. The surface is smooth and fast, and handles rain well. Even when the singletrack is muddy, the gravel trails can still be ridden. It's a fine trail for families, walkers, those with limited mobility, and bicyclists lacking mountain bikes suitable for the singletrack trails.
