Very nice trail for biking! Beautiful scenery, lots of trees and some open spots to view the surrounding country side. Real easy trail.

Can be lots of traffic the weekends.

Easy access, accessible to those in Rochester and Pine Island to take a easy, scenic bike ride in the early evening hours. Paved maintained trail.

I didn't think this trail was anything special. It's fine for biking, but you're not far from the roads and the noise of vehicles whizzing past...

This is a pretty good paved trail that connects Rochester to Pine Island (via Douglas). At the time of my Douglas Trail adventure they were replacing a small section of the trail that included a bridge. This forced me to take a minor detour around the bridge. Co Rd 3 NW was a short jaunt on the east side of the trail to connect back again. You can easily see this detour on a map. I'm not sure how long this trail construction will continue. There was wildlife that included a snapping turtle along the trail. Since this trail is a rails-to-trails addition, the grade was reasonable and the trail had a nice canopy cover nearly the entire way.

Easy, flat course with a bathroom stop in Douglas. It's a real nice break from sidewalks around town.
