Lowlands Trail Reviews

I found this trail and since it was a wet Monday we gave it a try. We started at the lot by the dam. The trail consists of the park road that leads to the gravel trail. We started out on a steep uphill climb. I’m not in the best shape but managed to pull myself up the hill. The ride downhill was worth it. The trail passes through a picnic area and the gravel portion through marsh. We saw turkeys . There is an elk viewing pavilion at the end of the trail. On the way back the hill is long but not too steep. We got back to the parking lot I decided to ride down the dirt road about a quarter mile and glad I did. I chased out an immature bald eagle

This trail is nice. It's about 6 miles long has small inclines and declines. The first 3 miles are paved and the traffic flows in a one direction. There is very little traffic on the road normally. At mile three the trail breaks to the right and extends for another 2 1/2 miles through the forest. There are no cars permitted on this part of the trail. The only think to make it better would be to make it longer.
