Salem Lake Bike Trail

Map of bike path around Salem Lake

The Salem Lake Bike TRACK Trail features nine stations around the seven mile lake loop. Each stop has a sign with interpretive information about the plants and animals that make Salem Lake their home, as well as some information about the value of the lake and why it’s important to keep it clean. You will also find tips to improve your biking skills.

Kids can register their rides on the trail at to earn free bicycle gear. In addition, each sign contains a secret code letter at the bottom right corner. Remember the code letters and un-scramble them to enter the code word on the form and win a special prize! 

Salem Lake and the surrounding lands and streams draining into the lake are part of the Salem Lake Watershed. This watershed provides habitat for wildlife, recreation opportunities for people, and a water supply for the city of Winston-Salem.
