Bucket List of Long Bike Trails in U.S.

Bicycling Magazine had a list in April 2021 of the Best Long Bike Trails in the U.S. I adopted the list as our bucket list to complete over the next few years. Last summer we knocked three more of the list - the Paul Bunyan, the Greenbrier and the Washington & Old Dominion. I have starred the paths that we have biked some or all.

*Great Allegheny Passage

Cumberland, Maryland to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

We have ridden parts of this trail. Great KOA campground near Connellsville, PA right on the trail.

*Katy Trail State Park

Machens to Clinton, Missouri

We have biked parts of this trail. We hope to ride more on this trail soon.

You don't mention the Cowboy Trail in Nebraska. That is a beautiful trail you should check out. You will see more cows than people!

We will definitely check it out! We were headed that way the summer after Covid hit and many campgrounds were canceling reservations.
