Flooded just below Simpson Park on segment two. March 7th we are expecting rain the next 2 days so plan your route accordingly
We started south of Fenton. It took us 2 tried. We got to the northern terminus and dangerous stop sign. We rode back 11 miles. Trail all broken up and poorly marked both directions. Trail was paved and it pretty good shape
This park never disappoints. The scenic overlook is breath taking and the trails thru the woods are shady and peaceful. Everything is well marked, and the posts of random information are interesting. Just lovely and dog friendly. Lots of trails, wooded, river front, and cave. Different lengths as well.
What a beautiful walking trail right in town! Smooth and paved for miles of easy walking. Half the trail is the neighborhood and the other half is the woods with a creek. Peaceful water sounds the whole walk. Dog waste stations and lots of friendly pups and people out exercising. No real shade, so go on a cooler evening when it’s dry. Not a hiking experience but a beautiful smooth walk for exercise.
This has got to be the most ridiculous trail around. It's broken up and spaced out so far you almost have to drive a vehicle to reach section. Not to mention hope short each section is. The 20+ mile trail distance is VERY misleading.
There is a MTB trail that begins at the top of the hill near the overlook. Not a great trail for a 1st time rider but good if you have been at it awhile. Goes from Blue to Black in some spots. There is also a nice 3 foot drop that can be done. Go only on dry days as this trail can get slick fast.
This is my new favorite trail. We'd done the Rock Hollow portion before, but had never ventured past it. The Al Foster Trail was beautiful and pretty much completely flat. It was fun to see the miniature trains full of people along the route as well. This trail is top on my list!
We enjoyed this trail very much! Unfortunately it was a 1/2 mile too short for what we needed, but lovely paths that go through shade, sunny spots, and nice views of the river. It was a gorgeous day and while the trail had lots of activity, it didn't feel crowded at all! PLENTY of benches about every 1/3 mile to rest and relax. An absolute treasure!
First ride on the trail, I believe was segment 2, exceeded our expectations. Second ride was just as enjoyable. The first ride was during the week with thoughts the trial would not be very busy. It wasn't so we were able to take it all in.
The second ride was on a late Saturday morning. We expected the trail to be busy it wasn't. I believe it may have to do with the length of the trails and all the many areas to pull off and take break to enjoy the views.
I'm sure we will put this trail on top of our list.
Today was my second ride on this trail. Love it, but the railroad crossing was kind of iffy my first time out. Today, I got to the crossing & apparently they are improving it because all of the wood is gone & I had to carry my bike over each individual rail. The mud from the flooding is dried up, too. Can't wait to see how they improve he railroad crossint.
first segment (Al Foster) trail is so gorgeous. perfect for lone bikers/walkers/runners and connects easily to Hamilton Carr trail at NW end and mid way roughly on western portion has the Rock Hollow trail. families...weekends in May-Oct the railroad runs [$4 donation] and is fun for kids. Trail is primarily gravel but is well maintained and is great for beginning bikers [even this 60+ new biker] and longtime bikers ...take the Stinging Nettle trail over to Castlewood to get some off road biking in. Excellent fun!!
We've traveled segment 2 from 141 to Simpson Lake and loved it. Will continue to go back. Kid friendly and very scenic.
