Create a trail that challenges riders and provides opportunities for skills improvement every day.
With a wide array of features for all level of riders Slaughter Pen has endless possibilities for your next urban mountain biking adventure.

With new features being added every year Blowing Springs is just now getting started!
The Lake Leatherwood trails are a mix of singletrack and fireroads that offers some of the best mountain biking around.
The ride is not overly technical so intermediate riders should have no issues, beginners may be on and off there bike a few times but should be able to tackle a large percentage of the trail.
Some of the more technical aspects to the trail are some semi-steep downs, switchbacks, rocks, and creek crossings. The outer loops are more technical so more experienced riders should head over to that section. The trails are well maintained and well marked.
