I have ridden this trail many times. 1 and 3 are the most interesting with 2 being mediocre. the trails are really well maintained with little chance of getting lost. there are a couple of small streams to cross, some rock gardens and small logs across the trail to hop. there are a few small climbs, and a few spots to really fly, mostly on 3. you will find a couple of benches and a nice place to stop and look out over the lake. we've seen deer, snakes and birds. it can get a little rooty in spots, but it's mostly nice packed dirt. it can get technical in spots so I would say this is for intermediate skilled riders.

The Lakeview trail (one, western trail ) is the easiest of the 3 lakeview trails. Really enjoyable. Start at the Algonquin camp.

Nice ride. Just enough challenges for a weekend rider. There are three separate trails here. Trails 1,2 and 3.
