2 miles. The newest edition to the UTC family, Lexington Lake Park opened in July of 2017 with 2 miles of beginner friendly single track. Volunteers are hard at work on the next phase and have another mile almost ready to be opened. Rose, the beginner friendly loop, roughly circles a beautiful prairie while going through several incredible rock walls. Look for the glacial erratic on the west leg of the Rose loop. The trail under construction now is the Emerald trail. It will pass by a 120+ year old dry-laid stone culvert. Bluffs along the north edge of the park have potential for some incredible mountain bike trails, so the best is truly yet to come at Lexington Lake Park!
The “Trail Artist” for the Lexington Lake Park mountain bike trails is Joe Folse. Already over 50 different volunteers have helped on these trails, but the main crew includes Ray Post, Gary Flemming, Tom Yahl, Michael Chanthamontry and Shelbi Meisch.
