Abundant scenery, varied terrain and more than 11 miles of trails await bikers at Fumee Lake.
Fumee Lake is surrounded by hills and the natural area is visually well-protected, creating the experience of wilderness. The entire natural area is 1,808 acres in size, including it's two lakes.
716 acres of property to the north and west of the lake have recently been acquired. As a result the trail system has been expanded and now consists of four loops ranging in length from 1.6 to 7.2 miles.
The trails encircling Big and Little Fumee Lakes are relatively flat and suitable for beginning bikers. The South Ridge Trail is more difficult. It involves a gradual climb of 227 feet above Fumee Lake's elevation 1,078 feet.
For bikers needing a challenge, the Fumee Mountain Trail is the most difficult and potentially the most satisfying. After a difficult climb to an elevation of 1,520 feet, bikers are rewarded with a view of Fumee Lake to the south and the Pine Creek Bluff Chain to the north. As a bonus, bikers are further rewarded with a 1.25 mile downhill run that terminates near the west parking lot.
