2nd time riding the "River Trail" at Lake Pueblo State Park, Pueblo, CO.

We set up a Nov 10. ride on the "River Trail" at Lake Pueblo State Park, Pueblo, CO. This is a older, part urban and part "State Park" trail, it's about 21 miles long but we only rode 13 miles due to being late in the year, sunshine wise! We started at the Wildlife Discovery Center/Coyote Grill/Café, which is on the trail itself. This was a "Slow & Easy Trike Riders of the Pikes Peak Region", group ride but only myself and my wife JoLynn showed up to RIDE! This is a mostly concrete trail and most of it is in good shape so it's quite enjoyable and from East/West directions it follows the Arkansas River. It's a older 8ft. wide trail but it's got good views and only a few hills/inclines over the whole trail! The day was a perfect late fall day, Sunny, 60F, just a breeze. We rode out to the "Confluence Trail Head' and back to the Coyote Grill for a great lunch! LOL, BTW, this was Saturday, on Sunday it SNOWED 6+ inches in Pueblo and Colorado Springs so our timing was PERFECT! ;)

Heading East on the trail, can you spot the guy who's Fly Fishing in the River?
