Omaha Trail

The last time I rode this trail it was in need of some TLC. We enjoyed the tunnel, many bridges and low traffic.

400 State Trail

Great Rail Trail!

May, 2024 by tannermumm

My dad and I started at the trail head at Reedsburg after getting some great tips and info from Sue at the restored rail depot by the parking lot. The ride out from Reedsburg passes through some busy streets and the first mile or two were a little slick after yesterday’s rain. But this trail just got better and better the farther we rode! The rail trail is primarily crushed pea gravel and after a few miles it dried up real nice and was very stable and reliable. From Reedsburg to La Valle we rode through a mixture of woodland filled with wildflowers (purple/white flox, white daisies and pink columbine) as well as lush marshland filled with water fowl, turtles and muskrats! My favorite parts were the sandstone bluffs that rose majestically over the marshlands and just beyond Le Valle the trail cuts straight through 20 foot high limestone. We ate in La Valle at Fishy’s Bar and grill which had some excellent burgers and fries. At Reedsburg we ate at Ronnie’s which also had great food. Overall I would highly recommend this trail!

Cheese Country Recreation Trail

Beautiful countryside

November, 2023 by christyfry14

I rode just part this trail today on my electric fat tired bike (Monroe to South Wayne and back). Most of the trail is gravel/crushed limestone. I’m afraid if I didn’t have the fat tires it could have very difficult. It was a little rough also. Overall it was a beautiful ride, I just had to be very careful. It was a weekday and I didn’t see anyone else.

Great Sauk State Trail

Another Nice One

November, 2023 by the_masseuse

Super nice paved trail with lovely views! Only bummer is the trail is closed going into some park? at the end. Runs through a reservation land which is interesting. Has a cool sundial along the trail.

Pine River Trail

Nice Trail!

November, 2023 by the_masseuse

This trail is super nice I think. Has some pretty views the whole way too. Liked it so much I did it twice in October! Came back a 2nd time to see the colors in the rolling hills. I think Fall is the best time to bike this one.

Pine River Trail

Had an awesome day on the trail!

October, 2023 by christyfry14

My husband and rode from Lone Rock to Richland Center and back. The colors on the trees were beautiful! The trail was in good shape. It ranges from crushed limestone to paved. There is a small section that is a tiny bit rough, but we have fat tire bikes so it was no problem. It’s all pretty flat. We saw marshes, creeks, farmland, and wooded areas. There are several wooden bridges, all in great shape.

Elroy-Sparta State Trail

Tunnels make the trail 5 star

October, 2023 by mrmikesch

Rode this trail over two days. Camped at Tunnel Trail Campground just east of Wilton. Rode Wilton to Sparta. Two tunnels in the section. Very cool!! The trail surface was mostly OK, except where the trail maintenance tractor had driven on it when the trail was soft and left ruts from the tractor tires. The section from Wilton to a Elroy has one tunnel. Small descent after the tunnel and then flattens out on the way to Elroy. Least favorite part of this ride.
