Bugline Trail (Route of the Badger)

Does it require entrance parking permit

June, 2024 by diavh

We are planning to visit there and does it require parking permit?? Where is best place to park?

City of Franklin Hike and Bike Trail (Route of the Badger)

No complaints. Just a short paved trail.

No complaints. Just a short paved trail.

Muskego Recreation Trail (Route of the Badger)

Ride at your own risk is correct. This trail is not maintained. Started over by Muskego county park. It gets a little better as you go towards the Franklin bike and bike trail but it's nothing to go out of your way for.

Starkweather Creek Path

Great Trail

June, 2024 by davep.mischka67

I’ve used this trail hundreds of times over the years as I head into Madison, Wisconsin from Sun Prairie to bike around the lakes. This is a great trail, with many a beautiful vistas.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail (Route of the Badger)

Depends what day

June, 2024 by drozey7

I used to love this trail, too many rude and inconsiderate riders from Milwaukee.

Jefferson County Interurban Trail

Map incomplete

June, 2024 by j.michael.klaus

As noted by the previous reviewer in June, 2023, this trail is now complete from its trailhead in Watertown to its junction with County Road F, south of Ixonia. It has been paved and open since October, 2022. Please update map. The map's satellite view actually shows the asphalt surface.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail (Route of the Badger)

Port Washington

Picked up the trail by Holiday Inn and went North. Nice run with limited traffic… good paved path to put in a few miles

White River State Trail (Route of the Badger)

Did the trail yesterday with my wife. Nice traffic bond trail with lots of shade and lots of dog poo left by unscrupulous pet owners . Why wreck this trail because you're too lazy to pick up after yourself . The world is not your toilet.

Pike River Pathway

goes a lot further south

April, 2024 by lpstaszewski

Nice trail crossing Hwy 20 is kind of a pain but south of that it is nice. It goes to Hwy KR which is a lot further than the map shows. You can even go to Petrified Springs by taking the pathway that runs parallel to Hwy 31.

Root River Pathway (Route of the Badger)

Charming, Tricky, Gritty

April, 2024 by deetiffanylb

Be aware. Signage not good 1st part of south end (where we began).
Trail Link map + GPS very helpful. Since signs are more in keeping w/ biking, than nose on phone, a suggestion: At decision points pls post signs, rather than down the road when you’ve luckily made a correct turn. Once through that the South end chains thru parks, many charming bridges over The Root River. North end signage was elusive too. We park near Zoo, biked along shore line, cut West to pick up trail just west of Main Street bridge and enjoyed 90% of the ride back toward North/car. A leisurely and scenic ride except for the navigation guessing game at beginning and end.

Brown Deer Recreational Trail

Oak Leaf > Ozaukee Interurban Connector

February, 2024 by davesnyder1622

Officially part of the Milwaukee County Oak Leaf Trail system, this connector joins the Oak Leaf loop at Brown Deer Park and meets the Ozaukee Interurban Trail seamlessly at County Line Road. Combined with the Oak Leaf’s Lakefront, River Line and Zip Line segments, they provide straight, smooth pavement on railbed between downtown Milwaukee and Cedarburg, and beyond.

Peebles Trail

Crushed stone was upgraded to asphalt by the end of 2022. Much smoother ride from end to end. Still absent a direct link into Lakeside Park.
