Combo Trail (Lums Pond State Park)

Average Rating:    (2.3 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 10

Open and under tree canopy single track. This is a combination trail for hikers, horses and bikes. I live close by and use this area when I just want to get out and stretch my legs. If you are a camper you can camp there and ride. Never more than a hiker or fisherman around. Not very challenging, but offers an alternative to trespassing! Clear, clean, safe trails for the beginner to start trail riding

Summary:
Ok so hears the skinny.
These trails are a blast! Sure there are no climbs or hairy descents ,
But for shear speed and fun flowing single track then it's worth a visit.
Outer double track is about 8 1/2 miles as of this posting.
The sweet inner loop of connecting single track is twisty flowing fast fun!
This places begs for flat out speed.
Park at the Buck Jersey road lot and go clockwise around the pond.
Get a Fat Tire bike and rip your legs off!!

Recommended Route:
See above

Summary:
Thanks to local bike people like the members of the Delaware Trailspinners and the Lum's Pond staff, this is a fun loop for beginners and kids. Bill Bachelor has been instrumental in working on the trails and making it exciting. There are some small tricky sections, but it relatively easy for most poeple.

Recommended Route:
Park at the Nature Center, ride the road for 200 yards North back towards the gate and dive left onto the trail, follow the Yellow blazes all the way around the pond. It is a 6.4 mile loop, but there are some small ways to sprad it out to 10 miles.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
White Clay Creek and Middle Run are by far more technical and challenging, , but don't discount Lum's, it is a fun ride afterwork or if you are crunched for time.

I give Lum's a 3 only becuase it doesn't have the climbing based on geography, nothing against the way it is laid out..

Summary:
Pretty boring, the multi-use trail is torn up by horses. No hills or anything. If you want more technical stuff, the hiking trail is more interesting...

Recommended Route:
It's a loop around the pond

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Middle Run, Fair Hill (MD)

Summary:
Great for beginners and if your new to Mountain Biking. Kids will also love the ride you can get your work out plus spend quality time with the kids.(ages from 6+) Impossible to get lost you either go left or right around the pond. Your mid point around the pond will be the camp site you can rest and use the rest room.
7.5+ miles
Flat NO HILLS
After a good rain you will find a lots mud,
Have fun

Recommended Route:
