Ozaukee Interurban Trail

Great ride!

May, 2017 by candice.altenburg

We started in Grafton and rode to the marina in Port Washington. It was the first road trail ride for my 13 year old son and he absolutely loved it! There are some hills, but nothing we couldn't handle. We had lunch in Port Washington and then rode back to Grafton. Very scenic... even got to see a pony on a farm!

Glacial Drumlin State Trail

Ozaukee Interurban Trail

Nice trail

April, 2017 by irmaiden

I recently tried out this trail and had a fun time.I started off of Mequon rd.and went to the I-43 bridge.That was 11.5 miles.The trail was interesting.I liked going through some of the small towns,then getting back on the trail.A few hills,and a few bridges and some interesting scenery.The only thing that I really disliked were the small bridges near Mequon.There were a few of them and they all had terrible transitions from the trail.You have to slow down or you will get a big bump.That was annoying,and I can't believe how bad they made that.It was a chilly 51 degree day on my ride,I will have to come back on a warmer day and make it to Port Washington.

Capital City State Trail

Capital City Trail 2017

April, 2017 by 17rttmn

I ride this trail regularly. While it is a very nice trail that takes you out of the city, the blacktop is starting to show it's age. There are cracks in many places. Some go across the path and others go down the path making it a bit of a rough ride. The good news is that they are scheduled to start replacing the trail later this year.

Stone Bridge Trail

Nice ride

April, 2017 by campbob

Yesterday was my first ride on the Stone Bridge Trail. It had rained for 2 days prior, so I didn't really know what to expect. The trail was in excellent condition. I started at the Rockton Road trailhead and rode to Poplar Grove (via the Long Prairie Trail). There were a few spots early on where some small animals have burrowed in the trail creating some small holes in the trail. Apart from that, it was smooth sailing. There weren't any washout spots even after all the rain. I wasn't really sure where the trail ended and the Long Prairie Path began, but it became obvious once I found myself riding on pavement.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail

Fun Community Trail

March, 2017 by heochief

I have adventured multiple times on this trail and it has never disappointed. In fact. The last time we rode this trail was in February of 2017 for a 64 mile journey. Each time we have started in Brown Deer Wi. and travel further each time. Port Washington is a great stop along the way to get some refreshments or eats or simply rest. A great recreational tourist area. The trail continues to Belgium Wi. were there is not much there. The trail is mostly flat with the exception of the the hill climb just north of Port Washington. The trail is asphalt and in good condition. The trail passes through a few towns about the typical 6 miles apart. This trail is a great community link trail and for recreation.

Hebron Trail

Pretty trail, mediocre surface condition

March, 2017 by ericds

Just to clarify some confusion, this trail is fully functional and does meet up with the Prairie Trail. I rode this today on a cross bike starting at the trailhead on Church Road in Hebron. It's a very pretty rails to trails - much of it has tree coverage and the rest is wide open - all of it through beautiful rolling farmland. Few important points to clarify some earlier posts:

1. A few miles in you will meet up with tracks that will be alongside you - their is a big no-trespassing sign but that is referring to the rails and the barley visible trail on the other side of it - just stay on the main/legal trail and follow all the other signage. As a heads up, the 100 or so yards of trail along the tracks is terrible but is short lived as...

2. You will then get to a road (Lange Rd) - take a left on the road and the trail re-starts a couple hundred feet down the road on the right. It is well marked.

The surface condition complaints you will see in other reviews are valid. I rode the trail when it was damp and It made for some slow, frustrating riding as in most places it's more sand than limestone and your bike will sink in a bit. It's rideable - but not ideal and would be much more so when its dry. There isn't much limestone left on this path. In dry conditions this would be a 5-star trail. This trail literally ends at the Prairie Path. I did an out and back and it clocked in at 13.45mi round trip.

Pike River Pathway

Trail is longer then described

January, 2017 by peteroster

The Pike River Pathway trail, for a few years now, has extended to the south of the map description. It goes from the described loop to Highway 20/Washington to just south of Highway 11. There is a chance it may be extended further south into the 2016 completed ACOE Pike River flood control project's Areas: 7; 8 & 9, to County Highway KR if Grant money can be secured by the Village of Mount Pleasant. It might be connected eventually to Kenosha County's Petrifying Springs Park bike path which is to the south of County Highway KR at Highway A.

Des Plaines River Trail

Ran the whole thing down and back

December, 2016 by blarthox

I ran both county sections (Lake and Cook) down and back in the Fall of 2016. At 112 miles round trip, the trail is easily do-able over the course of the several week period.

Running the while trail gave me a very enlightened perspective on the relative degree of trail maintenance and habitat quality between the Lake and Cook sides.The trail surface in Lake is far superior for most of its length, with fewer trail breaks. Healthy oak forests covered more of the Lake side, although I'd say that the area straddling Lake/Cook border region (from Cahokia Flats north of the Lake/Cook border down to Palatine Rd south of the border) has the largest numbers of massive mature oaks of any sections of the trail. This may be my favorite portion of the trail, and it felt like running through a primordial forest. I wasn't all that crazy about the Prairie sections north of Wadsworth Rd because it didn't provide much cover and, given the openness of the area the trail surface tended to be drier and harder, which was less forgiving on my joints. All the way down to the south quarter of the trail, I could not believe how rutted and uneven the trail surface could get. The underpass under Belmont was a total mud slick and a lot more ankle-turning holes covered the trail south of that section. But some of the habitat further south along the last 10 miles was just as beautiful as a lot of the sections closer to Lake.

All in all, the beauty and excitement of DPRT far outweighed the low points and frustration along some sections, so I plan to run the entire 112 mile loop every Fall from now on.

Robert McClory Bike Path

This trail is awesome! I don't know why it gets so much hate

December, 2016 by rckania2706

Seriously. Where is all the hate for this trail coming from? I rode the whole thing from Kenosha to Wilmette, and thought it was great the whole way. A lot of people are saying that the north part of this trail is unsafe but that is not true. I felt safe the whole way, even in the Waukegan area. This trail really. I recommend it to anyone who wants to go for a bike ride!
