Fish Lake Trail – gorgeous trip
Rode this path included in the Race for the Cure Diabetes investment raiser, after which once or twice on my very own. Sweet path, perfect for children. Gradual incline across varied surface, but therefore gradual and smooth, you truly do not view it.
exactly what a gem that is beautiful.
Found this trail whilst in the area for a days that are few made a decision to try it out. Therefore happy Used To Do. Breathtaking pavement that is wide and well maintained beckons one on in order to complete this 9 mile path somewhat up mountain to its end point. One could just hope the great individuals of this town will complete this path quickly. Just downer ended up being cracks that are large the pavement between mile 5-8. A few them where bone jarring. Sweet trip through the pines made my time. Thank you for a marvelous path experience.
