    White Rock Lake Park boasts a gorgeous 9.3 mile biking trail... take full advantage of it! If you don’t have a bike already, there are several nearby shops that can rent you a bike for about $35.

    Shhhh Don't tell anyone. City has done a great job fixing up the trails and the lake's surroundings. If it weren't for some overzealous tree pruning it would be perfect. Motorists please drive slow.

    The bike paths and roads surrounding the lake get really busy on the weekends, filled with weekend warriors and serious cyclists. Amateurs ride at their own risk. Powered by ParentsConnect.com

    Drive down Fisher Road with your date to the edge of the lake, and watch for the ghost of the Lady of the Lake to appear. If you don't see the Lady of the Lake, just make out.
