“Get past riparian & into the dells”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

We try to walk this whenever we visit a time or two each year. First time walking it without stiffling heat and if was fabulous! Always love introducing it to a friend who has never been and watching their reaction once we begin to walk "in" the dells !

“A great, easy walking/biking trail.”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Please see my review of Watson Lake. The Peavine trail is a basically flat wide trail on the old Santa Fe RR roadbed.

“Excellent bike trail with a hidden surprise!”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

This trail is perfect for a hybrid bike. It is a little rocky at the start, but it quickly becomes more smooth. The trail follows the shore of Watson Lake and is very scenic. After following the trail for around 15 minutes, we spotted a bike rack near some smooth boulders. We parked our bikes and spent a half-hour exploring the hiking trail that provides excellent views of the lake and even Granite Mountain. We returned to the bike trail and eventually came to a Y in the trail. Portable restrooms are accessible at this point. We passed many families and seniors along the trail. No mountain biking experience is required for the main trail. However, there were many trails that were available for the more experienced biker.
