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.

We went there today. It was a great experience. Love going there early in the morning, before it get busy.

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.
