Jackson Hole, Wyoming
Cruise along the 20-mile North Pathway, located in the scenic Jackson Hole valley. As you ride from the National Elk Refuge to Jenny Lake Visitor Center, you’ll likely spot a variety of wildlife with the Grand Tetons as your backdrop. Whether you like to power through or pedal, the paved trail offers a smooth ride and some of the best views around.
Everglades National Park, Florida
The Shark Valley Tram Trail runs nearly 16 through Everglades National Park past marshes, wildflowers, and wildlife. The multi-use route is paved and flat, but it can be intense when humidity and temperatures are high. Be on the lookout for gators as you stop for lunch at one of the many picnic tables along the way.
Columbia River Gorge, Oregon
Located just a few minutes east of Portland, the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area offers miles of peaceful riding past waterfalls and swimming holes. Hop on your e-bike and you can also head across the Bridge of the Gods and downtown for food and shopping.
An 18-mile rail trail, the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail starts at beautiful Pacific Grove and finishes in Castroville, California. You’ll pedal past stunning ocean views, a retired military base, and maybe even some sea otters! Roundtrip, the 36 miles are much easier with some e-bike power behind you.
Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Hit the coast for 10.7 miles of smooth riding with ocean views. The Shining Sea Bikeway winds past a variety of waterways and through a picturesque forest, then finishes with a look at the Atlantic Ocean. You can take a swim at the protected beach or continue onto quaint Cape Cod communities ahead.
Be sure to check local regulations before hitting the trail with your e-bike.
