I love it it’s sooo cool

Was very nice, got to see a couple carnivorous plants in the water.

Talk about a Beautiful ride. Wide pathways to accommodate passing when needed. Lightly used on the day I went, everyone I saw was friendly and outgoing. The trail is well maintained and clean. Make the trip if you are able. Well worth it.

A bit too over grown, walked a mile off trail before realizing it. Dog loved it, vary hot and some bugs. Decent little hick.

As someone from the Pacific Northwest I definitely wouldn’t call this hiking but it is a very nice well-maintained trail for walking. I took my two-year-old in her stroller for an afternoon walk and I think we’re going to come down here more often.

Nice open area. The trees seem sparse but actually provide decent spots for shade. The trail itself is narrow and kind of overgrown. I’d suggest long pants. We weren’t able to get too far because one section was flooded, so we just turned around. Had we not had my young son with us, we would have tried to go around it. Not a bad way to kill an hour.

This is an excellent trail in the blackwater state forest. A lot more fun north bound than south bound.

It's a beautiful short trail that follows along the Blackwater River just East of the US Hwy 90 bridge heading into Milton. 0.9 mile and then 0.9 mile back. A simple short trek full of flora and native plants.

Great Short Hike! Will do again!

it was awesome I'd go again in the summer to see blooming flowers.

great trail... well kept

Nice, paved, wide trail. I live footsteps away - just about 1.5 miles in from the beginning so I'm on a couple times a week. Slight elevation gain between historic Milton and the NAS. Best used for biking but loses a star for all the stop signs early on and the couple of intersections with Munson hwy.

Very clean and up kept

Bear Lake biking trail is a great easy to moderate ride. My husband and I rode it forwards and backwards in March. The only part that made the trail moderate was the gravel hill and a couple of other climbs. Going downhill was a blast with easy switchbacks. Lots of fun!
Walk to the grist mill after you ride. It is definitely an interesting historical part of the area.

Very nice wide paved trail. I was the only person walking it; everyone else was zooming past me on bikes. It's an incredibly long out and back, with multiple areas to park your car and jump on it. On the portion I did, much of it was facing east/west-ish and the setting sun was directly in my eyes on the way back. I recommend going as late as possible in the summer months due to the heat

Great trail!

Paved entire way. Hard on the knees unless you walk along the edge of the path a ways. Easily accessible from many locations. Easy trail.

100% worth the drive.

My baby and I strolled the path with ease in the stroller. It was enjoyable!

Didn't find this trail but found a 6 miler around Bear Lake...just down Hwy 4 on the left. Nice ride and lake...

My Fiance and I rode this trail and it a was beautiful and peaceful ride. We ate at the hot dog hut on Stewart st after and the owner was so friendly. This is definitely a place to come back to.

I just tried the Deaton Bridge Rd loop parallel to the river and around the swamp. For a beginner like me it was very nice and easy

I have biked this trail before and remembered how relatively flat it is with pretty views all good the way.
This time we sidewalk surfed this on our new longboards and had a blast! Great trail we'll be back!

Nice trail to ride that doesn't require biking up steep hills. It's perfect for people that just want a leisurely long trail. There are a few bridges that cross over small creeks. I have seen many snakes in the creeks and along the trail route so be on the lookout for dangerous wildlife. I have biked this trail at least 3 times and every time has been wonderful.

9 mile paved biking/walking/horseback riding trail. I love this trail! I rode nearly every weekend. It is well maintained and very safe for going it alone.
