Distance: between 7-10 miles

Time spent riding: 1.5 - 2 hours (longer depending on the group)

Difficulty: Lake Crabtree is one of the easiest trails to ride with ride arounds for all obstacles.

Details: No-drop ride for ALL Skill Levels / Riders. Looking for a nice, slow, low-pressure group
ride as you work your way back into shape after a layoff, or as you get started with MTB'ing?
Here ya go.. We'll meet at the Old Reedy Creek Rd. entrance, by the bench, Saturday mornings at 10:30am. We'll ride a big chunk of the LCCP trails, depending on how people feel. No one will be left behind (not for long anyway), we'll stop and rest as often as people need, and generally have a good time, get some exercise, and enjoy ourselves.

Weather permitting, of course.

Call or email Phil at[masked] or [masked] for more details or if you have
trouble finding us. I'll be the guy in a blue Ford Expedition, riding a brown Specialized Hard Rock.


Lake Crabtree County Park is a great location for rides. Expect easy to slightly moderate elevation changes. All trail obstacles have ride a rounds. Pace will be dependent on the experience and skill levels of the attendees, but I'm expecting an average speed of probably 5mph or so.

You MUST wear a helmet while riding on the trails. Make sure you have plenty of water.

    Hey Gang, I Just called the Crabtree office and the recorded message says the trails are closed. Anyone have different information?

    Hey Phillip & gang! I'll be out at Crabtree helping out with the Trips For Kids organization. If any of you are interested in hearing more about it, feel free to stop in at the last parking lot at Crabtree and look for the trailer. We start at 10 and end at noon. I hope to meet some of you...at least in passing on the trail. Hope Crabtree doesn't close!!
