There miles of single track dirt trails. Kinda hidden that take you on a longer route around the lake. This app is good for finding trails but it leaves out the dirt trails

Great trail! Paved with some spurs. My only complaint is there are no signs marking the trail for what is located where. Twice I've been on this trail and twice I've missed the "turn" to go back to the parking areas. I've never been on a trail this nice that has no signs (except for the 911 locate signs). There were bicyclists, skateboarders, people with dogs and people pushing baby strollers on this trail.

I travel for business and I love coming up to Sioux City to work, all because I get to come walk here at Bacon Creek. I live out in central NE and we don't have the landscape this park has,.

Went there with my family and had a great time. The main path is great for beginning riders and there are trails off of that that are enjoyable for the more adventurous.

Awesome. The paved trail is a nice little loop with some hill climbing as you circumnavigate the drainage basin. The real gems are the single-track trails that twist and turn around and thru gullies.

watch out for jerks on the mountain bike trails. lot of self proclaimed professionals ride these trails and if you dont have the jerseys, top notch equipment, etc... they are complete ***holes. kindly moving yourself and your bike off the trail isnt enough for them, and i pride myself on trail etiquette. this is not an isolated incident either, has happened multiple times. Try to go early to beat the extremists. Not saying everybody out there is a jerk....just sayin....... the trail itself is wonderful. lots of great scenery. it has its share of switchbacks and short climbs. no real large obstacles or jumps. A good challenge for me (beginner -moderate skills).

Good run, few easy hills and some unpaved stuff if you like. It's just over 3 miles if you do the whole thing.

This is a good paved loop around the lake at Bacon Creek Park. There was a moderate amount of walking/biking traffic when I did it this morning. The trail has more than expected elevation change, lots of gradual ups and downs and some fun turns. In general, pretty nice.
