The trail is well-groomed and entirely and easily rideable by bicycle, although I walked it yesterday from Freeport to Butler. The mileage markings are just a bit inconsistent and confusing, but it's essentially a 20 miles trail. (Mileage posts say on one side, for example, 4.5 but on the other 16.5, adding up to 21 miles. And, oddly, the signs are usually 1 mile apart yet are marked as XX.5 miles, never as just a whole number.) Roughly 5 miles outside of Butler there is a coffee/sweets shop on the trail, unfortunately closed as I went by, but there was also a shelter right there with large coolers of cold water to refill my nearly empty water bottles. ("Thank you"). It's slightly uphill on the way to Butler but a little hard to notice. And the gnats were annoying in the 7 or so miles nearest Butler. Might have been because it became mid-day. I intend to cover it again this weekend.

Gravel trail most of the way, very flat and easy. Great place to take kids.

It really was a beautiful ride. The little cafe about half way was bike friendly.

This was the most beautiful place I have biked thus far. There was a small cafe (around mile 14 or so) where we could fill up water and have a light snack-it's also a bike shop in case something goes wrong. Absolutely stunning-we will definitely be back.

Great Trail. Very well kept. Has a lot of creeks and little waterfalls to enjoy. I will warn you that it must have a very slight gradual climb to Butler. I noticed I was really slowing down but was flying on the return trip. I will be back!
