Moraine State Park Bike Trail
Trail Length - 7.5 miles (one way)
From - Bike rental building to Davis Hollow Marina
Surface - asphalt
Moraine is one of the two closest bike trails to our house, so when we want to run out and get some quick miles in after work on a weekday, this is normally our first choice. This trail is short, but lots of fun, with a few short steep hills, some long sweeping high speed corners and a smooth asphalt surface. Most of the trail is well shaded, although that means in spots it may not dry quickly after a rain shower.
On the down side, it is a popular trail, so there are walkers, joggers, strollers, roller skaters, and the occasional deer. It can be a seriously busy place on nice days, so we have to slow it down and watch out for the walkers and the casual bike renters. Of course slowing down on this trail takes some of the fun out of it, but we still enjoy it, and it is a very good workout.
