Trip Tips

Difficulty Level: Active - Intermediate

Difficulty Level: Active - Intermediate

This trail has a crushed rock surface which can be soft after a rain but it is smooth. We are riding 27-49 miles per day for 6 days in a row. The length of ride and endurance makes this a demanding, rigorous tour. Since this is a Rail-Trail, there are no steep hills to climb, but the longer miles and the softer surface of the trail will appeal to stronger, more experienced riders.

Suggested bicycle and tires

Suggested bicycle and tires

Touring bikes, road bikes with larger tires, mountain bikes Suggested tire size for this tour: at least 1.25 inches (32mm) or larger, due to the softer trail surface. Please do not bring a bike with skinny tires to ride this trail. You will not enjoy it as much!
