Located on the beautiful 4,500 acre Claytor Lake in Dublin, Va., the Claytor Lake State Park offers a great selection of outdoor recreation opportunities, including nearly five miles of trails for mountain biking. The Claytor Lake Trail is the longest one in the park at 1.55 miles and the Shady Ridge Trail (a self-guided interpretive loop trail) is the shortest at 0.66 miles. Each trail features colored markers to help riders navigate. All the trails are classified as “Easy” in the park’s trail guide and serve as a great way for the family to enjoy a mountain biking adventure together through an oak-hickory-poplar forest. The park also offers bike rental services.
