The resort offers many guest activities on its 2,600-acre lot, and recently designated several miles of its wooded trails for mountain bikes. Tangent Outfitters of Dublin, Virginia, occupies a small shop at the resort and rents mountain bikes form the Lakeview Cottage. Guided mountain bike trips are also scheduled form the resort for those interested in exploring some of the area's more scenic spots. Maps detailing their trail systems are available form Mountain Lake Resort. This fairly large loop, form Mountain Lake Resort to Butt Mountain, doesn't actually use any of the trails on the Mountain Lake Resort property. Instead, it leads cyclists on a more strenuous off-road journey deep into the Jefferson National Forest. This is a great ride for anyone interested in spending an afternoon mountain biking, who isn't afraid of a few hefty climbs along the way. Trail Surface: hilly dirt roads and jeep trails, some of which can get rocky.

Home of Dirty Dancing. Great trails, Awesome views from the top. The trail bed is very rocky. Extremely HARD when you face plant on it. Some sweet single track in the area. After a hard day in the saddle, enjoy some downtime poolside at the lodge.
