Bike Trails

Fans of cruiser bikes appreciate the Lake Estes Bike Path because they don’t have to compete with cars, the views are stunning, and they can pedal at a leisurely pace. Thanks to nearby bike rentals and the ease of the route, out-of-town families often turn the picturesque 3.75-mile loop into a pleasant outing that even youngsters enjoy.

Those looking for an extended ride can take the lake trail south, under the highway and through Stanley Park. This route continues south along Fish Creek, where cyclists can head west along the ponds at the Carriage Hills neighborhood, or continue south along Fish Creek to explore the beaver dams.

The Lake Estes Trail also connects with the downtown River Walk, where cyclists are asked to hop off & walk. The slower pace lasts just a few blocks and allows riders to take in the beautiful flower beds, stop for a bite or grab some additional gear. West past the downtown area cyclists can mount up and continue along the scenic Fall River, where the trail meets up with many riverside lodging properties.
