Riding The Pueblo River Trail

We got to do one of our favorite rides on Saturday, we loaded up the truck with the bike and the trike and headed 40 miles south to Pueblo, CO. and Lake Pueblo State Park to ride the the Pueblo River Trail! It's a trail along the Arkansas River from the Lake Pueblo Dam thru Pueblo, CO. up to the campus trail for USC-Pueblo. The total trail is over 20 miles long a mix of open mesa, light forest and urban settings. We start at the Pueblo Nature Center/Cafe. We decided to concentrate on the portion heading East from the center up to the Lake Pueblo Dam and Fish Hatchery. The trail is paved and it's a older 8 ft. wide trail but it's flowing and flat in most places. We got to the Dam and turned around to go have lunch at the cafe but found out it closed down in June, Rats!! So we headed West on the trail down to where you can pick up a main street going towards down town and the Pueblo River Walk. We decided to see what was up on Abrendo Ave instead of heading down town and found a great little Italian Deli and Store had a excellent sub sandwich! It was 2:30 PM. so we headed back down the trail to the truck as it starts getting dark by 4 pm. anymore! We put in 18 miles at a fantastic, 70F and Sunny with just a slight breeze of a day!! On the
way back the sun was making the river "SHINE" what a great fall day for a RIDE!
