We only biked the western end of the trail for 3 miles out and back. First part along the Black River then onto an old rail bed. The trail bed is crushed limestone but is very hard packed and easy bike riding.

This is a great trail to spend a day on walking or biking. The miles are marked with wooden poles, though sometimes you might have to really pay attention in order to not miss one. The trail is mostly shady, though there are parts that...More
