Great River State Trail

Late November

November, 2016 by superterv

Rode from Onalaska to Trempealeau on a gorgeous late fall day. It was very quiet and peaceful, lots of pretty marshland. One of the bridges was super neat. The trail was in better shape than others have reviewed- fine for a hybrid bike pulling a puppy in a bike trailer.

Great River State Trail

Nice fall ride

November, 2016 by jvonberge

Went from Trembeleau to past Lytles Landing (the long Black River Bridge). About 12.2 miles round trip. This section of the trail, while a little rough and frequent broken branch fragments, was not as bad condition as others have described in their reviews. I probably wouldn't want to ride it with one of those skinny tired bikes. Was very peaceful, not many bikers (maybe the trail conditions keep them away). There is a nice spur to an overlook platform with telescope to scan a large backwaters area.
I would definitely go to this trail again, interested in trying out other segments.

Only complaint and advice to others is to buy your passes (if you don't have an annual pass already) ahead of time. There is not a self-pay station at either parking lot trailhead (neither end of the leg we did). We got our bikes off, rode over to the post that we thought would have self-pay, only to read it tells you locations of businesses in Trembeleau and somewhere else you can buy a pass. Fortunately one gas station is only a short jaunt back into Trembeleau. I can only guess that there is a lack of funding for someone to come and empty the payboxes regularly.

Duncan Creek Trail

Nice trail!

October, 2016 by mysecondemailjk

While I was on the vehicle traffic portion of this trail, I was nearly taken out by 2 different people on their cell phones. Same as with people on the trail talking on the phone!
It is a very nice trail to ride after the traffic has died down a bit. A very easy ride.
I like that it connects with Old Abe.
Thanks to everyone for the hard work keeping the trails clean and safe for everyone.

Great River State Trail

Trail is in rough shape

September, 2016 by 20prospect

Not really a bike trail, so much as two tire tracks. Grass is overgrowing the trail, and the tracks are muddy and rutted in many places. bridges are getting pretty rough too.

Old Abe State Trail

Well maintained, flat, beautiful

August, 2016 by rdodnd

Road on 8/27/2016. Just beautiful along the river from Jim Falls to Cornell.

Great River State Trail

Midway to Treampealeau Bike Trail

August, 2016 by bonniegail3

First of all, the natural beauty of this trail is amazing, way past 5 stars! The trail itself is in terrible shape and looks to me like an accident and lawsuit about to happen. There are two tire track trails to follow with grass 6-12 inches tall in the center. There are washouts, deep and winding ruts and almost no limestone left on the trail. Weed limbs are getting real long from the sides of the trails and swipe you in the face if you are not careful. Beautiful bridges are in a sad state with nails showing, holes, plywood pieces covering some bad spots and just plain coming apart. It's hard to keep your eyes on the beauty of nature when you might have a bike accident if you don't keep your eyes on the trail. Where does the money go that is paid for trail passes, what can we do to get this beautiful area's trail upgraded before it costs a fortune for repairs? For now, my friends and I are going to ride trails in Minnesota until this trail gets improved.

Old Abe State Trail

Flat paved trail

July, 2016 by jld003

We started our ride in Cornell. We followed the signs for parking and ended up in a large park. There was plenty of parking, but we couldn't figure out where the trail was located. We finally realized that we had driven under it, and just had to cross the street. A sign would have been helpful. We didn't know which direction was which, so we just went to our left. We ended up riding through the state park. It was a beautiful ride, but I would skip that part if I went back. Cornell also has 2 ice cream places. I highly recommend the "Main Scoop."
The trail is paved and one of the flattest rail-to-trails I've been on. Going out of Cornell, you pass through wooded areas with an occasional glimpse of the river. The Chippewa Falls end is a little more open and goes through some farming communities. The parking lot on the Chippewa Falls end is in the middle of nowhere. If you're planning a lunch trip, I would ride from Chippewa Falls to Cornell and eat lunch in Cornell.

Old Abe State Trail

Lack of signage is rage inducing...

June, 2016 by marjory.sanders

The 10 mile or so portion between where this trail starts near downtown Eau Claire and Lake Hallie/Chippewa Falls is pretty void of scenery. Don’t come here if you want to view nature, only if you want to view industrial parks and traffic. Oh, and if you want a sunburn because you can’t escape the sun the entire trail. There is pretty much zero shade and no trees to block the headwinds. I think the rest of the Old Abe trail is okay from Chippewa Falls on to Cornell but this particular portion is boring, stinky and poorly marked. It just kind of “ended” at a field and there were ZERO signs that the trail cut off in Lake Hallie and picked back up elsewhere. Not everyone knows where the trails are especially people from out of town. I might be a little biased because I really don’t care for urban trails but maybe it shouldn’t feel so much like biking across every Nebraska industrial park strung together in the baking sun. There are far superior trails in Wisconsin such as the Elroy/Sparta, the 400 and the Red Cedar that still manage to give great scenery and still pass through cities.

Great River State Trail

Excellent Trail

June, 2016 by steve plattner

We rode from Trempeleau northwest to the end of the trail at Marsh Access where there is small parking lot. Lows of wildlife, including a young beaver very close to the trail feeding on some plants, deer, all sort of birds. We passed the cemetery in Trempeleau lined with flags for Memorial Day. The trail is a big rough in spots, probably from horse riding when the trail is soft in early spring. I liked the run from Trempeleau south to Unalaska with several bridge crossings and lots of marshes and forests. All in all an outstanding trail.

Great River State Trail

Very Fine Scenic Trail

June, 2016 by steve plattner

The 400 Trail, connecting at Elroy with the longer and better known Elroy-Sparta Trail, compares very favorably with its sister trails. It winds through the Baraboo River valley and passes through some very nice small towns. It is much more level than the Elroy-Sparta Trail, but every bit as beautiful. I saw lots of large turtles, deer, and two very large and very odd looking brown birds that I am still trying to identify. The trail surface was excellent. I hope to ride it again someday.

Old Abe State Trail

Beautiful trail

May, 2016 by mcjewell

Fantastic 30 mile ride from Eau Claire to Cornell and Brunet Island State Park. The trail is paved the entire way and the asphalt is in great shape (May 2016). Several miles are right along the Chippewa River...gorgeous farmland, forest, and river to enjoy. Nice stopping point in Jim Falls.

Brunet Island State Park is also well worth the trip, though it is best explored on foot.

Great River State Trail

Not so good this year

May, 2016 by ridgeville

I've ridden this about 6 times this year and it's really suffering from a lack on maintenance. Bridges are in need of serious work. trail hasn't been maintained (no mowing or cutting back brush)generally pretty rough. Looks like more of a mountain bike trail. Despite the lack of maintenance the state has raised their fees to use it.
