Mingo Creek County Park in eastern Washington County is the base for two short but sweet country rides. After exploring the full length of the scenic and serene Mingo Creek County Park, the ramble offers a fine sample of rural Washington County in a relatively easy 14 miles. The 30-mile cruise adds more variety, more hills, more views, plus the opportunity to enjoy the refreshing wares of a working dairy farm. After your ride, be sure to spend some relaxing moments along Mingo’s unspoiled trout stream or on one of the park’s many hiking paths in search of its abundant wildflowers and wildlife.

Great ride. Tough hills to end the longer ramble but little traffic, nice farm store to visit and a lot of accessible wildlife. The trail is not marked but the descriptions and mileage were great. I definitely recommend this ride.

My husband and I did the ramble, nice trail, very light traffic,though some roads are not clearly marked, I made a copy of the directions and brought with us, but the bike computer was most helpful with the odometer reading.

Nice trail, light traffic and nice country ride although Church Rd. towards the end is kind of steep. Some roads aren't marked well but if you have a computer and your watching your odometer you can navigate the unmarked roads fairly easily. Will definately re-ride this one over and over.
