Biking To Hopewell Lake

Frank and Kev At Hopewell Lake.
After settling in we jumped on the bikes and headed to the park office. However it was right at 5pm so couldn't get any additional trail maps or talk to the ranger. Continued on to the beaver dam (no new evidence of beaver though) and the fishing pier were i took the pic above. Then we headed down to the pool, and to the old dam and spillway at the opposite side of the lake.
That was all the easy part.
Coming down from the campground was all downhill. Steep downhill in some parts. And after two minor hills - I was done. I ended pushing my bike ther rest of the way. (And was really winded more than I felt in a while.)
No more biking for me...hiking sounds good though.
