“The trail at the north end of the Duck River Recreation Area.”— Zack Butler
Family Friendly Elevation change is minimal, although there are some technical sections.
At the northernmost end, riders cross over a painted steel/concrete pedestrian bridge across the Duck River. The 0.3 mile section immediately following the bridge, heading south along the west side of the river, offers some sweet flow and a series of downhill switchberms that will remind you of Bomb Dog on Coldwater Mountain. However, the last 0.1 mile before reaching CR-1669 is more technical.
When you arrive back at CR-1669, you have the option of crossing the road to the West Side Trail segment to extend your ride (up to 27 miles out-and-back), crossing the river on the CR-1669 bridge (watch out for traffic!) to return to the East Side Trail (a 15-mile lollipop loop), or returning back the way you came (16 miles out-and-back). Plans call to eventually complete a final section on the south side of the reservoir after the dam is completed to form a 20-mile loop around the entire reservoir.
