my favorite trail for biking, people are very friendly, beautiful scenery
Lots of variety to see. Water, fields, wetlands, towns, saw bunnies one time. Can be crowded on weekends, or for those bikers who really like to zoom past everyone. Places to stop for food or ice cream.
Best trail near me, but there are a lot of frost heaves and bumps. Ouch!
