Whether you are hiking or riding, the Fants Grove Lake Trail, located near Pendleton, is fun for everyone and features scenic views.

Loading Trails

Fants Grove Lake Trail provides views of the lake, but isn’t particularly technical or strenuous. Quarry also has views of the lake, a spur to a rock quarry, some steep eroded strenuous climbs, and some wet areas where beginners may have to dismount. The Quarry Trail can also be combined with Johnstone/Fox trail to extend your hike or ride. The Swine Farm may have an aroma of its own. Your ride will range from fast single track and short steep climbs, to dirt and gravels roads. There are also some stream crossings and downed trees, which may require dismounting. During your hike or ride, you may see a variety of birds including wild turkeys, and animals such as deer, fox, and snakes.

Be aware that this is an area shared by hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians. Insect repellent is recommended during warm months.

Camping: Camping is available a short distance away at the Twin Lakes Campground, which is operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. For more information, call 1-877-444-6777 or visit their website.
