DES MOINES: Biking at Easter Lake Park


Easter Lake Park has a 4 mile trail that loops around that lake which is great for family bike rides.  There's currently a partial trail closure due to construction on the northwest side of the trail that's scheduled to be completed this month, so our bike ride ended up being 9 miles.  

My kids' favorite parts of the trail today were riding through the covered bridge, stopping to play at a playground near shelter #1, and having a snack at a picnic table by the lake.  We entered the park through the south entrance and parked on the far west side.  There's a vault restroom next to that parking lot and five more vault restrooms along the trail.
