The East Circle Drive Bike Path is an asphalt sidepath in northern Rochester that helps provide a connection between the John Wellner Memorial Trail and the Zumbro North Trail, two key components of the area trail network. The path runs between Broadway Avenue and Viola Road, separated from the nearby roadway by a wide grassy berm. Passing through a mixture of suburban commercial sites and residential neighborhoods, the smooth path does have some shade from nearby trees, as it makes its way over a series of rolling hills.
At the western end, trail users can continue on the south side of the road with the Foster-Arend Trail, which leads up to the Zumbro North Trail. The southeastern end provides additional opportunities to connect with other paths and trails, as well as a useful community connection to a local high school and the grounds of Emerald Hills Park.
Parking may be available at Century High School during non-operating hours and weekends, located at 2525 Viola Road NE. Additional parking may be available at nearby local businesses; be sure to follow any posted parking signs and regulations.
