Easy ride. Trail is clean-has a few leaves & sticks. Easy to park & go to the trail.
Cute little towns line the trail as it weaves in and out of locations. Not intended for someone trying to get in long continious miles. Several street crossings.
Park at Blanchard park. The trail is asphalt and well maintained. Very scenic. Worth the ride.
Did 11 miles great experience love this park.
Going east on the trail at Rouse Rd there is no marking as to where to continue. I thought i was at the end. I'll have to go back another time to complete it.
Experienced a bit of difficulty finding parking but eventually solved that problem. The trail is nice and the section my wife and I rode was scenic. In all honesty this trail is too urban for my tastes but I can see how it would appeal to locals for walking, running and recreational riding.
We started at the golf club. We only rode this trail for a very short distance - but what we did see the trail was absolutely beautiful. It was too challenging for my wife and I - we are in our mid 70s. Glad we gave it a shot. (Wish we were 10 years younger!
I pick up the trail at Destination Parkway and go all the way up to Oak Ridge (3 miles total). It's well maintained, and really quite beautiful and peaceful. I incorporate these two sections into my daily ride and love it every time! The Destination Parkway to Sand Lakr road section is 1 mile along a canal setting. Lots of Sandhill Cranes to be seen, and some snakes (be careful, they're pretty venomous), but never any gators, which I have seen on the Sand Lake to Oak Ridge section (2 miles) in the lakes/ponds. This is a popular multi use trail, so be aware of people walking/running.
Trail is in great shape.. nice view as you ride.. It is very short 8.5 mile round trip..
Trail is average.. no much to see.. 90% of the trail is next to a busy road... Trail is not road bike friendly... ok if you have mountain bike.. I will not recommend!!
Great for biking, skating, running, walking you name it. Nice wide paved path so there’s room for everybody. Scenic ride along the water with fun spots over and under bridges. Lots of benches and water fountains to stop at along the way.
Cycled the full trail North & South today for the first time:
Trail is extremely well maintained, with mileage markers, and water & restrooms at terminus points. Incredibly scenic. Tons of wildlife! Mostly shaded. Very courteous visitors when passing in both directions, and from behind.
Here's my main concern: Deer.
I was riding early on a Sat morning, on the trail from about 8:30 A.M. to 11:00 A.M.
I had TWO very close calls of deer leaping out of the forest, crossing directly in front of me. First incident was two deer about 40 yards ahead. They crossed, then two more turned around just as I passed the point of the first crossing. Second encounter was only about 10 feet in front of me! A true Yikes! moment. Had no time to react whatsoever, a large deer bounded out and across the trail. Luckily we didn't collide. I was riding about 18 mph, not overly fast (or slow). I'm curious if other cyclists have had similar encounters. Crashing hard on the trail would potentially be serious, since help may not arrive rapidly. Also passed about 10-12 other deer just off the trail. I'm wondering if there was some kind of herd movement today that explained so many deer sightings/encounters inside one single ride. Any additional experiences would be helpful, as I surely want to continue riding this otherwise wonderful cycling heaven trail.
