Bear Trap Creek Bikeway

A short ride along Bear Trap Creek and Route 81, a bit noisy

Info: This was built during renovations to the Route 81 system, and is a short blacktopped trail from Mattydale heading south-west and roughly following along the side of Route 81 (there is a fence between the highway and the trail) and Bear Trap Creek.  Around eight feet wide, with very little elevation except for going over an overpass bridge, a few spots have some bumpy rippled blacktop.   The noise of Route 81 can be disconcerting.
