Mountain Laurel Loop Trail – Beginner – CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO CONSTRUCTION

This is the beginner loop of Raven Rock's mountain bike trail system, which is named for the abundant thickets of mountain laurel present along the trail. As you ride through the woods, you will cross numerous bridges; pass between stands of pines and mixed hardwoods; and traverse a restored forest. More experienced riders have the option of lengthening their rides by taking the intermediate or advanced loops, both of which veer off the beginner loop.

Bikers, please pay attention to which direction to go. Please be mindful and considerate when encountering other trail users.

Trail Location: 
Moccasin Branch Road bike field. Please pay attention to posted gate hours and weather conditions. After parking in the field, take the connector trail behind the wayside to the beginner loop.
