This is a great trail for bicycling. It's paved and wide with good plank bridges. There are a couple of gravel road sections, but they're easy to navigate.

Great trail with excellent upkeep. Easy ride, lots of places to stop every 6-8 miles. The only drawback is the gravel road crossings which get a little dicey on a road bike.

Well maintained trail. Mostly flat, except around Swan Lake in Carroll. Lots of bars to stop at along the way.

Shaded, flat, pretty, low traffic. It's a 33 mile trail. We did 2 miles out from Lake View. The kids loved it for scooters while I ran.

Nice trail connecting Swan Lake and Black Hawk Lake. Flat other than going around the lakes. Fun bars along the trail.

Very nice converted rail to trail. Great for biking walking jogging roller blading only draw back is the road crossing are gravel. Mostly level trail in great condition. Some reviews say not very challenging but I say so what go faster and make that you challenge. Enjoy nature.
