We enjoy having family bikes rides on this trail a couple times a year. Be careful after dark as there is some crime around this area.

I rode from Rochester to Peru. Very well maintained trail. No ports potties along the way or water. One small town (Denver) does have a store. Trail continues on to Kokomo. Plenty of places to eat in Rochester and Peru.

This trail is very well maintained and beautiful. Perfect for running, walking and bicycling alone or in groups. The trail runs through several communities and is accessible to everyone. Very scenic, with woods, bridges, and open areas also. Love it!!
