Arcadia Lake has excellent opportunities for those who like to go mountain biking, hiking, and horseback riding. Totaling 13 miles of beautiful landscape and scenery, there's plenty of room for such use. All trails are open seven days a week from sunrise to sunset, so recreational opportunities are greater than ever!

Multiple-Use Trail

The lake's most-used trail is the Multiple-Use Trail, which is approximately 6.5 miles one-way and extends from the park office to Spring Creek Park. This trail was designed to be used by mountain bikers; however, hikers, cross-country runners, and nature walkers also use the trail. The trail is a single dirt track with added bridges and water crossings. During the rainy seasons, some parts of the trail can be impassable.

A twisting and winding trail, the Multiple-Use Trail is used for any season of the year, especially during the winter. During the summer, the best time to ride is after some rain, because of some sandy areas of the trail. This trail is accessible in Spring Creek Park, Edmond Park, and Central State Park.

Trail Signs

Numerous signs are located throughout the Multiple-Use Trail, indicating direction. These signs also designate the main and alternate trails. These trails eventually connect and end at the trail heads. A white arrow indicates the main trails, and a yellow arrow indicates alternate trails or routes.

Equestrian Trail

Made especially for horseback riding, this six-mile trail is graced with beautiful mature trees, wildlife, and soft breezes. The parking lot is situated in the middle of the trail, so riders can roam in any direction. The fee for this trail is $4 per day per person, or you can purchase trail annual passes at the park office or any fee collection station.The Equestrian Trail is accessible from the equestrian parking site. Trailer parking is available at this location.
