Our local rail-trail. Just a few minutes drive from the store. Flat asphalt and crushed stone trail surface. Great mix of town and country scenery. An online map is available on the trail website.
Blue Marsh Lake Loop
Start at Blue Marsh Lake-State Hill Boat Launch
Ideal Bike Type: Mountain Bike
Distance: 30 mile loop.
The best thing about this trail is the variety of riding types and the constant change of scenery. You don’t need to ride the whole loop. We have often rode a few miles then circled back to the parking area. Have fun trying out the different sections of the trail.
