Sioux Falls Bike Trails Description

The Sioux Falls trail system, sometimes referred to as the Sioux Falls River Greenway, forms a loop of nearly 30 miles of paved, multi-use pathways that link many of the city’s parks and green spaces. The trail system is enclosed by Interstate 90 in the north, 57th Street in the south, Westward Ho Park in the west (with another short segment by Skunk Creek Legacy), and Rotary Park on the east. Much of the trail runs adjacent to Big Sioux River, which encircles the city.

A 1.5-mile spur of the trail, along Southeastern Avenue, parallels an active railroad line in a scenario known as rail-with-trail.

Parking and Trail Access

The Sioux Falls trail loop connects several parks where parking is available including (clockwise from the northernmost point):

  • Falls Park
  • Cherry Rock Park
  • Rotary Park
  • Pasley Park
  • Lions Centennial Park (and restrooms)
  • Spencer Park
  • Tomar Park
  • Yankton Trails Park
  • Farm Field Park
  • Dunham Park
  • Elmen Park (and restrooms)
  • Elmwood Park (and restrooms)

Sioux Falls Bike Trails Reviews

We rode several miles from Sertoma Park going south and east. These are a wonderful resource.

We are from northeast TN and spent part of our 20 hours in Sioux Falls riding about 20 miles of the trail. Our first impressions were the friendliness of the people and the cleanliness of the trails, the adjoining parks and even the trailer park on the southwest side. Having never been to this city before we have a great impression.

Good surface-flat, lots of trees so you are not walking in the direct sun the entire time.

I live in Sioux Falls, and ride the trail often. I've ridden trails in many areas around the United States, and honestly think this one is one of the best. There are plans to expand it significantly, which will make it even better. if you're in the area make sure to take advantage of this gem.

Connecting city parks, SFBT is a great urban trail for stretching your legs after miles in a car. Lot's of green and room to ride. The paved trail was in great shape. Busy with bikers walkers, joggers, etc. But, all were courteous. Very enjoyable.

Arrived in Sioux Falls 3 hours before sunset and enjoyed the beautiful Falls with trails throughout “Falls Park” . Many people in park. For exercise riders the Perimeter Trails were in use. The next morning I parked in “Cherry Rock Park” and took the trail down River to Falls Park. Also crossed the river at Cherry Rock and did a short section of “River Blvd Greenway” This section is older surface with expansion cracks. Be\ sure and ride if in area. 17 &18 Jun 13, Noel Keller
