Arcadia Lake Mtn Bike Trail

Average Rating:    (2.81 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 26

Nothing difficult here. If ridden hard, one can get a very good aerobic workout. All singletrack with some good semi-tight tree sections and some hills. A good beginner trail. This is not a loop.

Summary:
Family friendly beginner trail.

Just moved to the Edmond area and was looking for a close place to get some dirt on the mountain bikes. Took the entire family (including the dog) for a ride on this super easy, but fun trail. Kids are 10 and 6 and enjoyed it. Thy did have to dismount a few times but it didn't crush their spirit. I can see the sand on a few sections becoming a problem. We parked at the main most Eastern parking lot and hit the red trail. Nothing technical about it.

Recommended Route:
We did an out and back on the red trail.

Summary:
With the heavy rain earlier this summer this trail has become very sandy. Also with the heavy rain and flooding that closed the last for awhile it appears the lake crews have concentrated more on cleaning/maintaining the rest of the lake and have left the trails until last. As of the first Saturday of Sept, the trail from the project office was not mowed with heavy/high grass and stickers. The trailheads for Central State Park entrance were mowed but became heavily overgrown again once the trail was out of sight of the entrance. The trail south of the Edmond Park entrance had been mowed fairly recently and was decent with only a few high spots until almost the large creek crossing. There were also multiple areas with storm debris on/in the trail.

Trail is in need of maintenance.

Trail is generally a good all around trail, with some technical, single track, and hills ........and sand (too much of it now though).

Summary:
Before the flooding rains of early summer 2010. The trail was in the best shape it had been in years . Since the rain, I ride it once a month and I have to say that it is in the worst shape that Ive ever seen since Ive been riding there(1997). Arcadia lake has alot of nerve to actually charge admission to ride it. You would think that for the money ,they could do some repairs to it. Until they do, I recommend avoiding it. Why waist your time riding there When Bluff creek and NuDraiper are in such good shape.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Bluff Creek, Draiper,Clear bay, Turkey Mt.

Summary:
I want to start by saying I have not owned a bike in 22 years. I am 36 and finding this sport to be a blast. I bought a Fisher Paragon last month and have rode this 12 times or so. Starting to get a bit boring, however perfect for what I was looking for just starting out. My odometer has it around 11 miles, however I have yet to cross the so called creek. Overall if you have never rode this course would be ideal to ride. and if you need more of a challenge put it in a tougher gear and go hard!

Recommended Route:
go left from the entrance at the project office.

Summary:
This is the a great trail for beginners and casual riders. It offers some tight turns, good hills (that you won't kill yourself on) and although there is some sand, you just work through it. The scenery is nice and you can get a solid workout heading out and back. There always seems to be a good number of bikes on the trail with all levels of riders.
