The best bike trails you rode.

That looks beautiful! All we really got around here are cornfields with the occasional meadow or woodland grove.

For low human count, no motorized vehicles and ability to get up to speed and stay there for many miles I found the paved trail around Lake Okeechobee FL the best. For just riding and enjoying the day I like the Olympic Discovery trail in NW WA.

There is a decent trail in Morgantown, WV. I have ridden on that once. There looks to be a great trail on the Illinois side of the Mississippi river across from Iowa. I have yet to ride it. There are good trails everywhere, some better than others. The entire city of Pittsburgh is a good place to bike, save the highways, tunnels and the exceedingly steep hills with no berm. I heard Portland Oregon is a great place to ride but have never been there.

Oh, I forgot to say the attached image that I accidently placed in the original post is from the Olentangy River Trail in Columbus. It is a decent trail.

Yes, I agree. I rode this tail just the other week while visiting my brother. It was very good. The Alum Creek Trail will be good too once they connect the three sections.

I live in Vermont and the Burlington Bike Path and Causeway are worth riding if you're up this way.

The Alum Creek Trail is a decent one. Right now it goes 8 miles and is broken up. They are connecting all of it now. There is also a good bike store off of that trail.
