Today we rode the same spur in and turned left to ride north around the airport and back to downtown.
Country clubs on the left and right:
The bridge took us to the other side of the Big Sioux River:
From the northern end of the trail, a glimpse of the airport in the distance:
Across the Big Sioux River again:
At the top of a switchback descent (which we will climb on our return trip) to cross the bridge (and river) as we head toward Falls Park and downtown:
Falls Park is a must-see in Sioux Falls.
Same perfect turn-around point as yesterday!
Several times a day, fighter jets (not sure what to call these fast/LOUD airplanes) take off in 2s or 3s, fly around, and land. The South Dakota Air National Guard station is located at the Sioux Falls Regional Airport.
From the main trail, this is the spur across the bridge takes us back to the campground. Some maps call it Skunk Creek.
Where Cherry/Skunk Creek flows into Big Sioux River:
Great ride. 26 miles.
