The mountain bike trails at Lake James are temporarily closed to allow them to dry out following recent precipitation. To protect the trails from damage and keep our riders safe during these hazardous conditions, they will be closed whenever trails are too wet to allow riders. Accordingly, riders should contact the park prior to arrival to confirm that the trail is open.
