Situated in one of Maryland's most popular vacation spots, the trails at Deep Creek Lake State Park offer a challenging network of rides that is bound to satisfy even the most demanding mountain biker. Expect a well-marked trail system that will take you, among other places, up to the heights of Deep Creek Lake's lookout tower, where breathtaking views of western Maryland's mountainous terrain await. Climbing is not all you'll do, though. Upon reaching the summit and the lookout tower, you'll be treated to some outstanding western Maryland singletrack that takes you downhill all the way back to the car.
