“A beautiful scenic loop for beginner to intermediate riders.”— Richard Tydryszewski
Family Friendly Picnic areas, community events, playground equipment, fishing and disc golf.
Lakefront Trail takes you through private properties, which is allowed, just be respectful and don't litter. On this trail, there were many downed trees, mud, and brier bushes. I'm sure this section of trail will be cleaned up soon.
Next, I crossed the road where it said there was another trailhead ("Big Dam" on this map).
I could not for the life of me find a trail anywhere in this area, but there is a wooden bridge structure. There was very tall dead grass and under that grass was about six inches of mud so I decided to take the Sweet Arrow Lake Road back to the parking lot where I started. Then I went up Waterfall Trail and made a right after I crossed the waterfall onto Berger Dam Trail and noticed there are disc golf holes all along this trail. This trail was pretty clear from debris with a great view of the waterfall right after you cross a small wooden bridge.
I continued to ride this trail and there was a brief technical section containing a tight turn between trees which you can get around by going to the left. It then leads to a pump track-like section briefly. Finally, the trail leads to a turn-around point at a historical landmark of the dam before backtracking to the parking lot.
