Started at shelters 1 & 2 near Piersol Lake, head west towards the Mississippi River on flat nice paved path, cut to the south on same, but drops down to bottom [fun ride], levels out for awhile, slowly increase in elevation, and then fairly tight switchback going up [first time there, made it - did not stop! :) hate to see the brake wear going down this...], and then levels off back up on path towards road. Took this by the swimming area, and then towards Poplar Tree Lake dam, rested there a bit, enjoying the scenery and breeze. Back towards the starting point via New Park Road, which must be quite new as topo here doesn't have it marked - used the park's handout to correlate its route. Get some good speed going down couple hills; be careful at bottoms as visibility is limited due to curves. Not a lot of traffic, but only takes one vehicle... We were there on a weekday - may be more crowded during weekend. Saw couple other bike riders on the highways/road going to the park when leaving, but none on the ride while there.
