Lake Pahoja Trail

Lake Pahoja

August, 2022 by kevinriley

This is a cool little trail. There's a five dollar park entrance fee, however.

Lake Pahoja seems like maybe more of a pond, but it's a pleaseat ride. Very smooth trail. KInd of a short loop, but you can go around it as many times as you like.

Lewis and Clark Lake Trail

Great trails in Yankton SD area

September, 2021 by kcwyks_tl

We biked through the campgrounds at the Lewis & Clark Recreation Area, along the north shore of Lewis & Clark Lake. We find it fun to see how various folks "rough it" when camping. Seems like there were a thousand campsites and the trail had lots of activity. We extended the ride by riding all the way across Gavins Point Dam and back; there isnt much traffic on it. Although we didnt take the paved Highway 52 trail from the lake into Yankton, we highly recommend riding the paved trails around Riverfront Park in downtown Yankton, and then riding across both levels of the Meridian Bridge, a former RR/highway bridge across the Missouri River that has been modified for pedestrians. And while downtown, go north a few blocks and enjoy the fine large homes, and catch the Auld-Brokaw paved trail that follows Marne Creek from Tripp Park in the west to Burleigh St on the east end. This city knows how to keep bicyclists happy!

Le Mars Recreational Trail

Le Mars Recreational Trail

This is a nice paved trail with a variety from fields to ball fields to more residential areas to city parks. It isn’t super well marked so having this app helped tremendously. The trail actually extends past 24th to C38 so if you go to the end it’s actually a little longer than stated. Worth the ride!

Puddle Jumper Trail

Beautiful

August, 2021 by hoffman9

Very peaceful and beautiful. Short, but nice. Only 4 stars b/c the crushed rock can be soft and uneven in places.

Very peaceful and beautiful ride. Only a couple miles, but very nice. The reason for only 4 stars is that the crushed rock makes a soft and somewhat uneven riding surface.

Perry Creek Trail

nice trail

July, 2021 by dstusse

Trail runs along the Perry Creek from Stone Park to Downtown where you can connect to Riverfront trail. A nice ride

Sioux City Riverfront Trail

very nice trail

July, 2021 by dstusse

The River front trail is nice you can travel from South end to North end with only one area not developed by the new expo center. Hopefully the city finishes it soon. Singing Hills Blvd all the way to North Sioux City

Dakota Dunes Trail

See 3 States during the walk

March, 2021 by kr87kqjxdj

You walk/ride to the southeast corner of South Dakota. During the walk you will see Iowa on the other side of the Big Sioux River and Nebraska on the other side of the Missouri River. Walk this a few times a week, see deer, very well maintained, shale covered.

Chautauqua Park Trail

Beautiful trial

October, 2020 by mara.jorgensen

Beautiful fall day on this trail today! Although it isn’t finished on the north end, it is wide, clean, and easy to find for a nature walk.

Lewis and Clark Lake Trail

Love this

July, 2020 by kah327

This is such a fun trail. The best parts are around the marina and throughout the camping area by the water. There are some fun ways to cut through and be in amidst the trees away from campers as well. We go here a lot because it’s close to home and we love the scenery. It’s so well paved and maintained nicely! It smells soo good along the water.

Floyd River Trail

great trail!

July, 2020 by wilbertjeerdsma

Great trail and a fun ride! I would definitely recommend! Nice and peaceful, hardly anyone else was on it!

Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve Trail

Lots of wildlife

June, 2020 by aparrott58

If you are in the area on business or pleasure, this trail is worth it. We started at the nice visitor center where there is plenty of parking. The trail is crushed gravel and wide enough for side by side riding. We saw lots of wildlife, including turkeys (over 2 dozen), waterfowl, garter snakes and doe/fawns (still in spots). In addition, the closer you get to the big river, there are a number of old growth cottonwood groves w/ some of the largest cottonwoods we have seen. There are a couple of viewing platforms near the river and the trail has curves and some short hills. Just a nice evening ride. Also, ride in a figure eight to add more miles and see the groves twice!
