Hi
Can anyone recommend some trails at the lakes that would be good for a young child new to trail riding?
any trail with some moderate grades. She is only 6 and enjoyed old man trail at RR so something similar to that at the lakes would be great.

thanks
Steve

Hey Steve....

I would recommend the trails that follow around Lake Williams. If you park in the gravel lot on S George St below the Redman dam and take either trail 2 which would be to your left if you are facing the Redman sign or trail 4 to the right at the top of the hill. Stay on the trails closest to the lake shore. You will never escape the hills at the Lakes so she might do some walking up the steeper hills but overall the trails are much less technical than at RR.

Good luck!

Thanks we will try that. Thinking of buying a full face helmet for her for all the rocks at RR.
