Getting There

This loop trail is paved and circles most of central Sioux Falls. There are multiple access points including some branch trails. It is used for biking, running, walking and rollerblading. It follows the Big Sioux River. The highlight is the falls at Falls Park where there is an observation tower. Most of the Eastern and Southern trail goes through interconnected city parks creating multiple access points. These portions have the heaviest use and the trails are wider there. The greatest elevation change is going North of Falls Park where there is an extended incline, bridge over the diversion channel spillway, and switchbacks. The rest is an easy mostly flat trail that is about 19 miles total. Accessibility: The trail surface is paved concrete and typically at least six feet wide. The grade is mostly gentle (all estimated 5% or less) so most wheelchair and stroller users will likely find the trail navigable.

Various

From 49th and Louise Ave. go East to Oxbow Ave. Turn right. Take the first left into Sertoma Park and the parking lot.

I'm sure it's great for biking, we walked back and forth a couple times from the Clubhouse Hotel to Oxboro Park and it's basically one long straight stretch.

Nice job Sioux Falls. We really love this trail. It took us about an hour and a half to get around 20 miles on our bikes. ALL PAVED!. But we took our time around the falls. You’ve got to try this if you’re in Sioux Falls. Wonderful roads even the detour downtown which was only about 1000 feet was well done! Great scenery great paths.

Nice multi use bike loop Trail. Passes through the downtown area and the outskirts of the city. The trail is very modern and offers different views and highlights of the city from urban to more rural. The main attraction is the waterfalls which is very picturesque. They have a lookout tower and a nice cafe with great sandwiches and Icecream. I didn't see all what the Trail has to offer but I will return.

Awesome on a fall day when it was about 70 degrees. October 2014. We were going 21 mph at one point heading south by airport. A bit slower on south portions due to kids & pets. Moved to Sioux Falls to do more often.

One of the best ways to see the city, from neighborhoods to city parks to the downtown river walk.
