I biked this trail on a beautiful Saturday morning in May. The crowd was pretty light. I looped the lake twice and also went over to the Prairie View Lake Trail on the other side of 180th Street. The Newport Landing side of the trail is paved and well maintained with gentle ups and downs along the way. There are nice views of the lake and also the fields surrounding the area. The area seems rife with activities--fishing, boating, walking, biking, etc. There were also a dozen, or so, Canadian geese along the trail just hanging out. Overall, I really enjoyed this trail.
