http://iowacitytrails.blogspot.com/2015/05/solon-lake-mcbride-trail.html

A very pleasant scenic trail that runs along Lake MacBride. The trail is crushed stone and well maintained. Bridges span the few creeks draining into MacBride. The trail is fairly flat with a few gentle grades There are informational stations describing the flora and fauna as well as newly installed benches. The trail is wide enough for bikers ,dog walkers(leash required), and joggers to occupy the same space. Cool breezes from the lake make even the hottest days tolerable. The trail has multiple access points, with an excellent roadside map at the entrance to MacBride State Park at the end of Hwy 382.
