Family Friendly This is a very obstacle free trail, however, it does have tight turns with trees and short, punchy climbs and descents. No extended climbing.

Description

This trail is currently being added to regularly but is currently over a 10 mile loop. There are 2 parking lots. The North parking lot is off of Ellsworth Road. The South Parking lot is off of Shilling Road. The North Parking lot is the preferred parking lot with the exception of times when you want to avoid crossing the creek. When you want to avoid the creek crossing twice the South Parking lot is a better choice.

The trail is very well laid out in the terrain available, probably one of the best locally. This trail barely has any straight lengths, with many twists and turns around trees and terrain, many having well-designed berms. There are also many areas that are bench cut into the side of a hill, and some other areas that have been left intentionally off camber.

The trail has almost zero rocks, and very minimal roots, so beginners can fair pretty well here. There are some short, punchy climbs, which turn into nice flowing ways to gain speed on the way back.

The trail is a fun and exciting ride and worth checking out.

The Lake Milton State Park trail system as a whole is still under development by the Rust Belt Revival Trail Coalition, however, this trail is complete and ready to ride

Highlights of a ride through Lake Milton Trail. Very twisty, mostly flat, and difficult to pick up speed.
