The paved bike trail within Moraine State Park is 7 miles long (not a loop). It starts at the Bike Rental on North Shore Drive near the park entrance from West Park Road. The paved trail winds along, with some hills, grades, and curves, and many views of the lake. About halfway it passes through Lakeview Beach area, with a disc golf course, playground, and a swimming area (open Memorial Day to Labor Day, swim at your own risk), food concession, and picnic areas. The bike trail ends near Davis Hollow.
Fun path to hike with friends. Not very challenging for longer distance hikers, but fun trip to Moraine.
all paved. little winding path watch your speed everybody uses
We only went out a mile before we turned around but it was such a great trail! It was easily followed and absolutely beautiful. One fair warning is that there were small-game hunters so be sure to wear a bright color. I am definitely planning on going back and completing the entire trail!
Nice quiet walk through the woods
Mtn Bike trails are nice with some very nice easy places, and some Expert level places. New Trails were being made that are more trials oriented last time I was there. Get a Map of the Trails or you will get lost. Once you know the layout though, they are vary easy to navigate.
Roller bladed on the bike trail, with my two daughters (8 & 15) today. Somewhat hilly but not to bad, my 8yo did it with little problems. The leaves are changing, it's very pretty and the lake is calm and quiet.
This is my favorite kind of trail. Woods, water, beauty, a lot of up and down and it has difficult sections and it has easy sections.
What a wonderful way to see the beauty of the park. And such a beautiful day.
