Badger State Trail

Nice trail, but…

August, 2022 by kd4q9cvkp8

I rode the whole trail today on my way from Madison to Freeport, Illinois. The trail was great except for two closures. The first one, north of Monticello, must have included the bragged-about tunnel, since I never saw it. This closure was well-marked with bike detour signs. The second closure, just north of Monroe, was marked with a sign that says, “find alternate route.” I chose to ride west here to Highway 69, which was had cars whizzing by at 65. I don’t know why, on a State trail, Wisconsin doesn’t immediately fix this two closures, especially when they want to charge you to use it.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail Connector (Route of the Badger)

carefull inline skaters

July, 2022 by jrlubar

There's a patch of tar/rubber repairing the trail just north of division st in thiensville that acted as a brake on my wheels and caused my skate to just lock in place with my forward momentum causing me to call forward. I didn't have a problem with the narrow repairs but the big patch was a problem without any notice that it was a different texture completely from the rest of the trail.

Glacial Drumlin State Trail

Wakesha to Verona, WI via the Glacial Drumlin, Capital City, and Military Ridge Trails, June 28 - 29, 2022.

June, 2022 by djones223

I rode from east to west over two days from Wakesha to Cottage Grove with an extension to my Verona home in via roads, Capital City Trail, and Military Ridge trail. I did an overnight in Lake Mills at the Econo Lodge (clean and quiet and allow bicycles in their first-floor rooms).

Trail conditions were good except for "gopher holes" in multiple areas and overgrowth hanging over the trail in places. One needs to keep their eyes on the trail! Found a great coffee shop in Deerfield (Deerfield Coffeehouse) only a couple of blocks from the trail.

The most difficult (and dangerous) part of the trip was riding the series of roads from the Cottage Grove terminus of the trail to the Capital City trail. There was lots of fast traffic, no bike lane, and a detour due to the bridge construction on Femrite.

Glacial Drumlin State Trail

Madison to Milwaukee ride

June, 2022 by rastro1

we went from downtown Madison to downtown Milwaukee, an 88-mile ride, and for more than half of it we rode the length of the Gloacial Drumlin Trail. The trail is completely flat, virtually without hills although after Wales there is a long shallow downhill for about six or seven miles. The trail was in very good condition: in 52 miles, there were just three or four places where we hit loose gravel. Those were scary but just for a second. And there was no place anywhere that had broken glass on the trail. We took breathers about every 12 miles, and twice left the trail to go to the center of small towns. Recommended: the main square park in Lake Mills, nice and shady with benches. Also, the Bike Doctor in Dousman, but the best was lunch at Mama D's in Wales. The service was a little slow but it was perfect because all the sweat dried and we were so much more comfortable on our second wind, all the way to Milwaukee. After Dousman, the trail turns to pavement and that feels good. It's not crowded.

Also, almost the entire length of the trail is shaded. Whoever planned this trail really knew what he was doing. It raised our comfort. It was perfect for a long hike like ours.

Great Sauk State Trail

Nice trail

June, 2022 by edgramza

Nice trail. Relatively flat but hills are there and very deceiving. Older or inexperienced riders could benefit with the use of an E-bike while on some of those ‘hidden’ hills as they can be a mile or more long. Great day for a ride on this very well kept trail. Ended the ride with a visit to the original Culver’s in Sauk City for a scoop of their famous custard.

Military Ridge State Trail

Great...until you get out farther from Verona

June, 2022 by r.heinemann

This is such a beautiful trail, but it has so many bridges that are in bad shape. The snowmobiles have taken their toll on them. Also, biking is such a wonderful activity in the summer, and road bikers tend to go long distances. Given the unsafe roads for biking (bike lanes eroding into the shoulders, dump trucks and semi overuse, debris in bike lanes) the State of Wisconsin could really look into improving the trails that are already established. The Military Ridge Trail could really benefit from being paved the entire distance. Wash out tends to make this gravel trail unsafe for even gravel bikes, but really unsafe on the downhills for road bikers. Please improve summer activities in Wisconsin by improving this trail!
