Short but sweet. Nice bridge over the skunk river. Benches along the way but little shade.
Well maintained. You'll see and hear wildlife. Bring bug spray. You'll be along rivers and other bodies of water. Lots of activities along the way....this is an excellent biking trail as well.
It’s a pretty nice rides. Some of the asphalt has holes and cracks in it but just watch where you ride. Trail is mainly covered by trees so very shady.
The trail is closed near the dam. It has been closed for over 2 years and no sign that may change.
Best linear park in the world. Starting at the People's Bank trailhead, you
experience restored prairie marshland on your left and restored prairie potholes on your right with riparian woodland in the background. At about 1,500' you cross the North River and ascend a 10% grade with upland woodland on your left and cropland on your right. At the peak of the grade you descend to a 3-acre pond and then ascend via a hairpin trail through an oak savanna. You cross under Scotch Ridge Road and then traverse a conservation subdivision and two city parks before you connect to the Summerset Trail.
A good training trail. Not a level trail—nothing but hills and valleys. Very scenic and plenty of places to stop to catch your breath and measure your heart rate...
Beautiful trail, some asphalt dips but asphalt is difficult to maintain everywhere. Great signage. Nice range of canopy/ open areas and weed management
We especially enjoyed the area around Copper Creek Lake! We connected with the trail coming from The Chichaqua Valley Trail at Berwick. Coming into Altoona there were a few hills which made it more interesting. Looking forward for the completion of the trail with the connection to Bondurant! Loved it!!
Beautiful ride. Wide concrete trail around a lake. Wooded, bridges, scenic. Plenty of places to stop with picnic tables.
Perfect length, completely paved, great views!
We biked this trail from Shellrock to Bristol May 2020. Great ride 46 mile round trip. The bridge outside Clarksville has been repaired. The Bluebells were blooming and were beautiful. The trail is now open to Bristol and is paved.
After the high school, I wouldn't call the hills "gentle". Even the ones that aren't as steep are long. Trail surface was good. I enjoyed the country landscape, and Rock Creek State Park is a worthy destination. But if you don't like hills, you will NOT like this trail.
