This is a good trail for a leisurely ride, but not what I was looking for. This is a good trail for family/scenic riding. Speeds above 10 mph were hard to maintain, and in some spots down right dangerous. Most of the trail was bumpy do to deteriorating conditions, and the boardwalk crossings were in an ill state of repair. Downtown I came across signs stating no bikes allowed?!
I ended up riding on Aurelius and College Roads where there were very nice bike lanes were you could maintain higher average speeds.
My family took this trip on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and had a great time. The zoo was great, the trail was well marked and the Capital was great. We would recomend it to anyone.
I love this trail. I went to MSU so I used it all the time. Not extremely strenuous, bathroom outside the zoo and different scenery to look at! Highly recommend.
