Island Lake Recreation Area has one of the nation's safest shooting ranges. The park has great canoeing, volley ball courts, picnic shelters, swimming and cabins to rent.

How are the trails today after yesterday's rain?

Nice trail for a beginner it has some challenges but if you have the stamina they're easily handled.

My boyfriend and I did half of the blue trail last Saturday; would definitely go back to check out the rest of the trails! Also had a chance to view the meteor shower up on a hill overlooking Spring Mill Pond. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great trails. It's been a few years since we've been here and had forgotten what a great trail this is. It's a fast trail with plenty of straight always and a few fairly easy climbs. Awesome plase to come and spin your legs, also great place for beginners to experience the sport.

Nice loop featuring a pair of lakes. On the harder side of easy due to the length; the terrain is fairly flat. Sounds of civilization (shooting range, road noise) are all around. Trail maintenance was fairly good overall, but parts of the trail will need to be cleared again in the near future. Also, trail intersections are identified by letters A through I, but not all identifying signs have been erected yet. Overall, still a work in progress, but a nice loop.

had a wonderful time.

After transitioning from road to trails, I find my second visit not devoid of interesting challenges. I'm working through them with each visit but find difficult to master the long technical inclines. I look forward to each visit.

I hike the blue loop every so often ( i usually stick with the yellow because of time restraints). If anyone has hiked or biked the blue trail, have you seen the VW bug in the woods? I am trying to get a history of that car and how it got there. if you have any info please let me know. Thank you.

I Like the Yellow Trail because it is less technical then Maybury State Park Mt Bike Trail, and it feels like a faster ride.
