Followed the directions from Trip Advisor and it took us into the projects at a dead end. No park. No greenbelt. No Capital building. Just basketball courts and the Whip Nae Nae playing on a boom box.

This is s beautiful state capital building. There is a free tour that was very informative. We were unable to tour the House chambers because they were working on the light fixtures. The rotunda, Senate and Supreme Court rooms were magnificent.

Its a good 20+ mile bike ride but the trail could be better marked. The first time we rode it we mad a few wrong turns. We know it well know and it helps. Gives you a bot of everything: urban, parks, wildlife preserve, etc.

Other parts wander through leafy neighborhoods and re-claimed industrial areas going back to grassland and young woods. Is almost all volunteer maintained. Will be...More

I love the paved trails and all the different parking places so you can check out all of the different sections. I wish there were more mileage markers... Some day I will make it the whole way around.. I believe it's 20 miles or so......More
