Great trail / riding conditions. A few stretches between towns that have not been upgraded but overall a great ride. A couple stretches need shoulder improvements.....if you veer off the trail you're in trouble due to a 4" drop into class 5 rock and then into the woods (the only reason I deduct a rating star). Get this fixed, the trail deserves 5 stars!
I did the loop starting in Perry. I liked that there are several little towns for rest and nutrition stops. Other riders were courteous and friendly although some could turn down the tunes....hard to enjoy the peacefulness when AC/DC is blaring throughout the woods.
Walked the first section of the trail with our dog. Met a few bikes, a runner and a couple of walkers. Pleasant, well-maintained. Crossed three low railroad bridges; saw 2 deer in the creek below. Lovely place to spend a few hours.
Visiting parents in Atlantic, my dad was part of trail development in the area, Dick Hensley. Road his touring bike that he rode on 16 RAGBRAIs and the bike ride across the US to celebrate Iowa sesquicentennial years ago. Beautiful trail with lots of catbirds and other native songbirds, butterflies and plant life. Definitely worth the ride. Live in TX but will be back, down the road. Thanks dad. It’s an honor to ride your bike.
2-ish miles south of Jefferson the bridge is still out, w/no practical alternative route. Construction was active, but still no stable bed on new bridge. Let’s hope it’s passable by end of 2021.
A national landmark for the Des Moines area trail system. A must see for hikers/bike riders. Well worth the drive to experience first class trails in America heartland! Thank you Iowa!!!
This is a nice, almost completely paved trail through the town. Benches are placed along the trail. This is a flowing trail with flat areas and hills.
Great ride! Great trail!
This is a great trail! This bridge is a true diamond! You gotta see it in person. Pictures don't do it justice.
First time riding a paved trail and I love it! Very well maintained and an absolute delight. Had such a wonderful time this was my first 50 mile ride. I did not want to quit. Look forward to many more rides on this wonderful trail!
wonderful trip across America
Great ride, trail well maintained and the fall foliage was a perfect setting. The bridge after sunset was beautiful.
Went out and got to the first bridge from Jefferson that crosses the river and it was still down, the detour kind of sucked but other than that the trail was nice.
