  • Incredible Views - 10 Tunnels - 7 Sky High Trestles - Unforgettable & Best of all it's Kid Friendly as it is all downhill with a Shuttle Bus that brings you back up from the bottom of the trail.  more »

  • Such an amazing bike trail! It was a very easy bike ride, many tunnels (a little cold), and plenty of rest stops along the trail. Amazing sights and landscapes. We went in late August, and it was hot, but still very tolerable. Bus ride back to the top was good. Highly recommend the bike trail.
  • Amazing Trail Experience! Do not let the length of the ride discourage you - it is all pretty much downhill and there are buses to shuttle you back to the top! It is an amazing experience and worth every pedal! We camped near the east portal and got an early start so the ride was not at all crowded and the long tunnel by ourselves was super cool - you must have lights on your bike! One thing to note is that the start at the east portal is very close to a time change zone.... so do know what time it actually is! We we over an hour early for the shuttle at the bottom because we were in the wrong time zone on our watches! Super views and lots of history along the way - definitely a bucket list item checked off!
