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.
