We stated biking at Goose Berry Falls State Park and went about 7 miles towards Beaver Bay. It was a very hot day, we are mid 60s, and the hills were tough. There are some wonderful Lake Superior views along the trail. The maps and...More

We enjoyed biking this trail on our trip to the North Shore. You will ride along the lake with beautiful views. You will also ride through forest and marsh areas, cross river gorges. It is a beautiful ride. The only disadvantage is that the trail...More

We rode the trail from Gooseberry Falls State Park to Split Rock Lighthouse State Park and back for a total of 16 miles. The trail is paved, wide, and in excellent condition. We weren't thrilled that parts of it parallel US Highway 61, but the...More
