Lake LoopFeel like an off-roader when you traverse this hike-and-bike trail set along the lake inside the Martin Creek Lake State Park. With tall grass, undeveloped woods, and the occasional creek to ford, this relatively flat 6-to-7-mile trail gives riders the sense of being among country terrain—albeit with easy access to the waters of Martin Creek Lake. The lake is a favorite with fisherman and summertime vacationers, many of whom check into the park's cabins and screened camping shelters.
