Started out at Anderson Bike rental on hwy89 at 13th ave, about a mile from the Y (intersection of hwys 50 and 89). They're really friendly, but not sure if they're just angling for tips. He had a nice spiel about what to see and do on the bike path, and was very patient with us and our youngins.
Bike path winds through beautiful woods with glimpses of the lake. Pope Beach and Tallac Park are nice access points to see the lake up close. Kind of secret spots, so don't go telling all your friends...
Camp Richardson, about 15 minutes along the path, offers snacks. In the colder months, like now (early November), enjoy hot chocolate at the Camp Richardson general store, and sit by the nice warm fire.
We came last summer and had terrific hot club sandwiches here and enjoyed them on the grass. Also in Camp Richardson is some ice cream/coffee place across the street from the general store. DELICIOUS homemade icecream, giant scoops for half the price of coldstone. This one is not that secret. The grass outside was definitely happening with locals and tourists alike.
Right now, the salmon are spawning! There is a nature preserve near the end of the bike path starting near the bridge over the creek. Look in the creek for the salmon hanging out, post spawn, smoking their cigarettes. Awesome!
