Parking and Trail Access

Bachman Lake Park Loop Trail Reviews

Much of the trail is under construction and not accessable at this time.




I recently visited this park as well. I thought it had great potential to be great again. Currently there is a lot of construction, however, the paved trail that encompasses the park is still intact.

If there was one thing that would fix this park to make it enjoyable again, what would it be?


Lots of men just waiting around in the parking lot. Very unsafe feeling. I was told later that they were all just waiting for the prostitutes to show up. It's unfortunate because there are some children's play grounds there as well.
Also, the sidewalk is torn up pretty badly on the back end (by the airfield). I will never return to this place.

Nice trail around the lake; however, a good portion of the trail is under renovation. We were forced to ride on the beaten down grass path that is mostly used by pedestrians. Just not worth the trip at this point. We would consider heading back when construction is complete. Definitely a beginner trail, not a ton of inclines to work with.

This trail is close enough for all residents living inside the loop. It is long enough and has 3 slopes for a good workout . It is narrow at times and can get crowded at times. Therefore I would say its good for beginner trail bikers who do not gain a lot of speed. There are planes landing at all times so at times a plane or two may pass overhead. It could be widened and made smoother to develop it further.
Water fountains are on the park side only (have not used them so far).
