Lake James State Park »  Current Conditions
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.
Hiking the mountain bike trails is permitted whenever the trails are open. For the safety of all trail users, hikers must maintain vigilance for bikers and yield whenever mountain bikes are passing.
Users should park in the new parking lot off the state park road at the Paddy's Creek Area. The bike trails must be vacated by 8:30 p.m. each night. Check the web site or call the park office for daily information of trail closures due to weather or other hazards.
