Archer Braid Trail Reviews

This is not the most scenic trail around but if you're looking for a smooth, well maintained asphalt trail with little to no interaction with cars; this is the one. Great for fitness/speed rides!! I'm a fan.

Pros: - pavement is pretty smooth for the most part, wooded portion not well kept (leaves etc) - pretty sunset - parking that won't Gaye you in overnight (end furthest from SHANDS hospital) - no swerves - adequate width - nice balance of flat and hilly - cows are awesome Cons - no water fountains - can be boring at times - pine needles - non-wooded portion w/ several interruptions w/ crossroads/speed bumps
