    Fairly easy ride. It has been extended by 2 miles. Historic sites along the way, including railway structures from early 1900’s, restored caboose, cement kilns from 1900 and of course the Troxell Steckel house from 1756. Also two public swimming pools to cool off!

    This is a very nice trail, around ten miles if you ride the loop and spur. Unfortunately, safety is becoming an issue as road bikers are finding the blacktop surface ideal for training at high speed. The trail doesn't have a speed limit so you may find cyclists blowing by you at 20-30 mph, thus the less than great rating.

    Excellent ride with some beautiful scenery. There is some more difficult riding if you take some of the traidl spurs. I recommend doing this ride.

    My wife and I biked the trail on a warm January day and we had a wonderful experience. Your description is very accurate. It was a lot of fun.
