Protocols for Shuttle

Where to Meet

Parking for the Lake Leatherwood Gravity Project is located off of HWY 62W (see map). If lot is full, overflow parking is located at the Leatherwood Ball Fields parking lot. DO NOT park at the Miners Rock Parking Lot, as this lot is reserved for pedestrian use of the Miners Rock XC Trail. There are porta-potties located at the shuttle pick up and each parking area, but there is also a full bathroom located on the eastern portion of the ballfields. Water is also available here too. Please respect other trail users by following proper trail etiquette at all times.

Full face helmets, eye protection, gloves, elbow pads, knee pads, and body armor are recommended, especially for anyone riding our advanced level trails. Please ensure that your bike is properly tuned before arrival, as there are no mechanical services or products available at Lake Leatherwood City Park.
