New hiking and mountain biking trails open at Lake Meredith this weekend according to the Amarillo Globe-News.

Robert Maguire is the superintendent of Lake Meredith National Recreation Area and Alibates Flint Quarries National Monument.  He says, “The new trails are part of the park’s general management plan that has been under way for several years.”

The hiking trails are an intermediate difficulty level, having scenic views, switchbacks, steep climbs, down hills and steps. Mountain bike riders can find intermediate to advanced level single tracks in the trails.  Bikers should ride in control and must yield to hikers said Maguire.

There is no admission charge or user fee for the trails.  They are open every day of the year.  The new trail is called Harbor Bay.  The trailhead is located near the boat ramp, and can be access from Lake View Drive on the east side of Fritch.

Beginner trails are scheduled to open later this summer.
