I’m on this trail a lot for running, walking and biking. It’s fantastic. I just wish the city would be more consistent with bathroom quality and placement, and that they’d open them earlier in the mornings for early-rising runners.

Paved hiking/bicycle path. Extremely easy. Parts were flooded. BUG SPRAY lots of mosquitos, prob due to so much standing water.

Fun trail with a lot of great views. A small section is aggressively uphill and wear you out if not prepared. The nature sounds are always present and views are spectacular for eastern South Dakota.

Awesome Trail. One of my favorite trails in the 15 states I have cycled in. Stunning parks, one after another on the southern portion. Since I don’t see anyway to post pictures, I will post them to my site, cyclingthe50.com.

We love Leaders Park. It’s almost completely wooded, so not many ugly, hot clearings like many of the state parks. The whole understory is buckthorn, but it’s maintained by a biking group, not the city or state. Maybe that’s why it feels so good, Parks and Rec isn’t in there killing everything all the time. Small, and audible interstate traffic, but close to home and my 4-year old is very partial to these trails. This is the only park at which we hike that he feels an instinct to run. Great job F.A.S.T.

Edibles and usefuls: mushrooms, nettle, garlic mustard, a few gooseberry, a couple grapes,and buckthorn (laxative). Large trees are mostly cottonwood, maple, boxelder, and ash.

Enjoyable year round for all ages. Great for hiking and mountain biking. There is multiple trails with different levels of difficulty and they sometimes change or add new ones every year! A great escape from the city (even though it’s smack dab in the heart of it!)

This is FAR from "Aggressive"!
I love this trail for exercising my dog, and myself, as well as early morning (sunrise) photography, but this is FAR from "Aggressive" (Maybe for YOUNG children I guess)

Fun little treasure tucked in the very NW corner of Iowa. Excluding some cool geologic formations, nothing in Gitchie will blow you away. Depending if the grounds have been maintained you might run into some graffiti.

One of few places you can combine trails and get a few miles in

Holy Mosquitos, Batman! I'd definitely consider this a moderate hike at most, and that's considering that I pretty much sprinted up the hill to get away from the swarms of 'skeeters. The views are gorgeous from the top though!

The southern part was especially pretty.

Great scenic hike close to home. I would rate this more moderate than hard. There is one steep incline, and one decline, otherwise this trail is pretty much flat

Very nice paved trail. Used for walking, running, cycling, NOT a horse trail. Goes around Sioux Falls. Parked at Fair Grounds, loop was a little over 20 miles.

It's hard to tell where you're supposed to go, all of the sudden the trail gets overgrown. The parts that were maintained were great. The bridges were fun, the creek was pretty and the old homestead is very cool.

I would like to thanks to "FAST" for maintaining this amazing single track in our area. It has a wide variety of areas that will test your ability and give you a great ride.

It was my first time riding the trail and it was a great uphill workout I must say. The downhill wasn't bad and was able to gain some good speed. Trail was well maintained so high five to the park!

Kind of confusing but fun. But I must strongly advise you to bring bug repellent if you are going in the warmer months. I plan to come again and maybe try the different trails in the fall time.

I had my little one with me so we just did the green loop, but it had nice scenery and lots of mild ups and downs. We looped it twice. I look forward to going back soon!
