Nice path if it wasn’t for the construction taking you on the road and all the potholes and bumps making it a rough ride. Good work out though

Would suggest biking instead of walking. Deer common. Paved trail immediately next to highway/road.

Fun trail! The start was a little confusing as you need to follow the sidewalk along 67 to access the paved trail. Super easy 7mi to the lake - too bumpy for a road bike. The way back is tough.. be ready for a steady incline the whole way! Overall great ride! Lake at the end is beautiful. Tip - when you get to the lake you can take the mountain bike trails that run along side the campground and this will allow you to access the trail again without having to ride on the road. You will still have to cross 67.

This is a sneaky little trail! The first 7 miles fly by because of the decline. The last 7 are grinders! I recommend this for anyone looking to up their cardio and their legs!

Mostly flat nice trail. Good views but it is along a fairly busy road. We only did the first 4 starting in Woodland Park. I think itget more secluded the further you go.

Great ride north, killer back south! Trail is paved but that doesn't mean it's smooth! Lots of cracks that make it a bit more challenging on a road bike. If I would do it again, I would start at the lake and ride to town; the hills would be more manageable when your not so tired. Aspens were pretty today and weather was great too.

This is a very easy trail from Woodland Park to Manatou Lake. It does Follow highway 67 so there is a lot of highway noise unless you hit it really early in the morning. The lake is nice with a campground and picnic area and an additional trail around the lake. There is one point near mile 7 where the trail has you cross the highway along a bridge and then cross back. This might make sense for those on a bicycle but as a hiker/runner, I prefer to be on the left side of the road going into traffic. There is no path through here - you are just on the shoulder of the road. Then at Painted Rocks Road the trail/bike path starts back up.
