The Lakes Area offers many miles of pleasant cycling on gravel roads. Some of the roads are closed to motor vehicles, and several loops have been signed as mountain bike routes. Many of the outings are easy; others make good training rides. Beginners will find the circuit challenging. The route includes an excellent 1.6-mile singletrack trip around Swan Lake. The road conditions vary considerably. Much of the ride is on doubletracks that are slowly becoming trail-like. There is also riding on good gravel roads, rough spurs, and a short stretch of pavement. The trail around Swan Lake is in good shape. The singletrack has some challenging sections, but pushing your bike through them is only moderately difficult. Good camping and swimming at Swan Lake.
