We recently invested part of our tax return to get a 5 place bike rack for the mini van.  The inspiration to do this was to give us the ability to go over to Boulder Junction to explore their beautiful trail.  If you have never taken the time to go to this paved trail it is a must do.  It runs part of the way along Trout Lake with beautiful views and places to stop and put your feet in the lake.  It is winding through woods, up and down hills (down hills just before uphills which make the uphills a piece of cake).  You are missing a jem if you have not done this trail by bike (between the hitch and the bike rack don’t ask the price but it was worth it)

One of the many views you see along the way.  I did not take the camera along for the ride so all you get is the beginning views by the minivan.  The rest of the trip envision winding trails through trees up and down hills along Hwy M ending in Boulder Juction where we found ice cream  Without kids I would have choose a lunch at The Outdoorsman Restaurant

5 miles into town and back was a great ride!
