Easy hike, quick. Simple if you know the area, but trails aren't marked and you can quickly hit a dead end. Very littered.

Hiked this during late afternoon in late July. The trail wasn't marked very well and, if you do not have an actual map, it can be confusing. It isn't maintained all that well and there was quite a bit of litter (which actually helped when making decisions on turns). The view of the interstate, water plant facility, and the actual grave was ok. Also, there were a lot of bugs and I landed some ticks that I found post hike. As far as wildlife, we saw a couple of deer and some teenagers smooching. I liked the grassy area located at the beginning of the hike the best. In all, it was worth it just to kill a few minutes, get some exercise, and mark the trial off the list.

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.

Did this trail the first time in forth grade when we were studying Lewis and Clark . It's a short trail up a hill to the grave over looking the Missouri River . A little history and a nice hike.

This is a lovely, flat, paved track that runs north out of Chautauqua Park for about two miles before coming to a dead end. It follows the river and has nice tree cover the majority of the way. I enjoyed biking this trail; it is short and sweet.

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.

This is a paved multi-use trail along the riverfront, from Hamilton Blvd. to Riverside Park. I saw several dogs on leashes as well as bikers and runners. I like that it connects to other biking trails for a longer trek. It is well-maintained and used.

This was a nice 4-mile bike ride. I started at Leeds and followed the Floyd River Channel south. It's good for biking, walking, or jogging. There are a couple of intersections with streets that you have to be careful with, but it's a fine trail.

This is an intriguing little trail. As another reviewer said, there are decent views from the top and it is a nice, short hike. I enjoy historical things like this. If you've got an extra half hour, it's worth a peak.

This is a pretty short trail, but there's some decent climbing. The view by the grave site is pretty nice.

Flat, paved, multi-purpose trail that runs along the MO river from Sioux City to the SD border. Connects with other trails. Trail marked every 1/4th mile. Great for walking, running, biking, blading etc.
