The Rend Lake Bike Trail is actually a 20 mile trail that goes around part of the lake. I hike/bike it often by the dam area. The lake officials are working on making the trail a loop that crosses the highway bridge, and comes back together. It's a great work out trail. Hike or Bike, then Swim.

I am new to this site and have the app loaded on my smartphone but did not use the app on this hike. I completed a small portion of this trail from just past the Ranger Station to Rend Lake Resort and back. A very nice trail. Weather was cold and gloomy that day and cut things short. Looking forward to backpacking this full trail one day on camping.
