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.
The Sioux Falls trail loop connects several parks where parking is available including (clockwise from the northernmost point):
We rode the 26 +/- mile route in mid July 2019.... Very nicely maintained trail and quite well marked. Mostly level with a few grades, nothing major. Wind was a nuisance the day we rode, but still a great experience.
Was so surprised at how nice this trail system is; well maintained and laid out! Many cities should use this as a model for what should be!
Love our trail system. Ride it regularly! Pick you direction carefully so as to not have to ride UP the spillway ;-)
On my way to the black hills I stayed at one of the hotels near I-29 and just biked on the sidewalk a few blocks east to the loop. The 21 mile loop is all paved and smooth, and very scenic while along the rivers. The north section of the loop around the airport is on the top of a levy and kind of dull, but is flat and smooth so you can get a good workout if desired.
There is a good bike map on the city website.
We came to Sioux Falls specifically to ride the trails and they were absolutely delightful. There's a nice mix of urban and suburban cycling here. It's possible to get just about everywhere by bike. Many intersections include wide, well lit underpasses. Solid system. Five stars.
The city of Sioux Falls has created a wonderful biking experience for its residents and visitors!We road in October 2018 and could not have more pleased with the ever changing scenery and smooth trail surface.Road bikes work the entire 26 miles with very few cross roads to contend with.The trail passes through several city parks and South Dakotans enjoy the outdoors!Sioux Falls has many interesting restaurants and Airbnbs to add enjoyment to your visit.
We rode the entire loop last October and it was fantastic! So many cool things along the way including the spectacular falls park. Highly recommend!
We rode the entire loop today and this is an exceptional trail. It winds through park after park with smooth, wide lanes.
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
