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.

Glacial River Trail

Glacial River and Glacial Drumlin

November, 2016 by loisyocom

The two trails do cross at the trailhead north of Jefferson, just like it looks on the map! I went south the long way around, being told by another biker there was no other way to get there from here. Made the fortunate discovery on the return trip that the G.R. trail does indeed go through from the Fairground entrance all the way to the trailhead on the G.D. and is twisty but well marked. All that's missing is a sign to that effect at the trailhead. Just take that road to the south around the bend and there it is! A little bit of city an you're on the wonderful, smooth paved trail, all the way to Janesville if you like.

Wiouwash State Trail

beautiful ride

October, 2016 by lisa202000

We rode from Medina to Hortonville and back on this trail at the end of October. (4 miles each way) This was an absolutely beautiful trip with trees draping over the trail most of the way. It also included some beautiful marsh land and some bird filled meadows. There was a port -potty, some sitting areas and a picnic table for lunching in this short stint of the trail. I can't wait to ride this trail again in the summer time.

Sheboygan Interurban Trail

All road cycling

October, 2016 by vanallenrlr

Picked up the trail from Oostburg to Kohler Andre. From the pictures posted I was not expecting strictly roads running through farm country but trails that resembled the Ozaukee interurban trail. This trail was a lot more challenging than the typical rails to trails I'm used to.

Oak Leaf Trail

Norwich Street Trail Connector to Oak Creek, Trail flooded at Layton Ave

October, 2016 by y1htak

This is one the trails we ride a lot. A lot of times we head west on Wilbur to ride around Alcott Park to go west on Howard over the expressway bridge, then south on 104th street to get to the Norwich street trail connector.

Well, it had rained very hard Saturday night and we discovered that the trail was flooded from underneath the expressway to the other side of the Layton Avenue bridge. The water appeared quite deep and had a current so we rode back and took Coldspring East to Hwy 100 south, then Layton Ave East to rejoin the trail.

No other part of the trail was flooded even though there are more places where the trail crosses near the river.

On the way back we took the unlabeled bike path along Loomis through Greendale before getting on 68th Street.

Glacial Drumlin State Trail

Wales to just past Sullivan on a misty day

October, 2016 by y1htak

While we were getting our bike out of the truck at Wales we saw a fox cross the road near the visitors’ center. It didn’t seem to care that people were around. It just trotted along on its business.

This is a very scenic trail. However the day we rode it was very misty, relatively warm, and wet so the unpaved portions were starting to get quite challenging with our heavy duty tandem bike with cruiser tires and 300# of people. There were quite a few slippery spots and leaf covered potholes. We’ll probably have to give up riding the unpaved portions of this trail until the weather gets dryer or more crushed stone is put down. Last year we couldn’t ride the unpaved sections in winter because we slid around too much and sunk too deep in the mud. A bit of a terror ride for me in back where I can’t steer.

We only made it just past Sullivan to the salvage yard when the mist felt heavier and it started to smell like rain so we turned around and headed back. Large drops were hitting us sideways with the wind as we rode back through the marsh but it wasn’t wet enough to break out the rain gear.

White River State Trail

Burlington to Bowers Road, Lake Geneva

October, 2016 by y1htak

This trail was very nice. The Fall colors were starting and leaves littered the crushed limestone trail with their bright colors. The trail was well maintained with no slippery spots or holes.

It's not too difficult to get to this trail from the 7 waters trail. You basically head south through the park onto Milwaukee Ave, then veer right onto State Street. Right around this downtown area before State Street there is a burger place with large windows that smelled great when we rode past it. The people inside watching us go past on our tandem really looked like they were enjoying their burgers. We are going to have to stop and eat there someday.

State Street eventually turns into Mormon Road/Hwy 36. Take a left onto Spring Valley Road. This is a very nice road with a wide paved shoulder marked for bikes. The White River trail was on our right after we crossed over the Hwy 11/Burlington Bypass.

We left the trail to ride into Lake Geneva at the unlabeled Bowers Road which was after the labeled Weeks Road.

Seven Waters Bike Trail

Wind Lake Canal Public Acces to Burlington

October, 2016 by y1htak

Very nice trail overall. There is a variety of scenery. However you do have to stay alert for changes in directions as this trail is a bunch of trails pieced together. It’s easy to miss the entrance to Saller Woods. The trail mostly runs along or in the same direction as Hwy 36 which is good because it keeps you off Hwy 36. I see quite a few people biking on Hwy 36 before the trail starts. I hope that someday this trail gets extended into Milwaukee County where it could meet up with the branch of the Oak Leaf Trail at the intersection of Hwy 36/Loomis Rd and the Root River Parkway.

It has a pretty good surface of asphalt or crushed limestone but watch out for the curbs. There was still the same block long muddy spot at the bottom of the hill after you cross 164 as there was last year.

We then ate lunch in Echo Veterans Memorial Park where we got to see a whole migrating flock of big white egrets fishing around the dam. There were lots of people with fancy cameras photographing them. I took some pictures with my point and shoot camera. Amazingly they turned out pretty good because the birds were so close and didn’t seem to mind having their pictures being taken.

The chocolate smell in Burlington was wonderful but we couldn’t tell where it was coming from.

Brown Deer Recreational Trail

B.D.R. Trail Lengthened (& connections)

October, 2016 by johnathanharold

..The trail starts at County Line/CR-Q (That's the southern end of the Ozaukee Inter-Urban Trail.)
It continues south about 4.6 miles. It has parking at Brown Deer city park as well as the Brown Deer county park (and street parking several places along the way.)
..Near the south end it connects to the Milwaukee county Oak Leaf Trail on an old railroad right of way going over the freeway and the Milwaukee river; through Estabrook, Hubbard and Riverside Parks ending up at Veteran' Park on the Lake Michigan shoreline.
..It is paved, smooth and reasonably level (considering it IS going downhill north to south.)

Glacial Drumlin State Trail

Recommend for a Weekend Ride!

October, 2016 by quidditch33

This trail is amazing! It makes my weekend trips to Sauk City much easier because it isn't hilly. Towards the end you get a little sick of the crushed stone, but it really isn't too bad. If you are looking for a Saturday bike ride, I would recommend either biking from Waukesha to Wales(14 miles), which is paved, although it is the hilliest part and it isn't too scenic, or you could bike from Cottage Grove to Deerfield(13 miles), which, although it isn't paved, is both scenic and flat. I ride this entire trail every week if you want to see me I usually arrive in Deerfield around 12 noon every Saturday. Altogether very scenic trail and very efficient for biking!

Peebles Trail

Nice Trail

September, 2016 by deverson_tl

We rode the Peebles Trail, Prairie Trail, and The Loop around Fond Du Lac on September 19. Our route was 22 miles. The Loop is a marked route around the city that takes you on city streets. There are a few busy crossings, but much of the route takes you on lesser traveled streets. There are marked bike lanes on some of the streets. They have it marked pretty well with signs and painted arrows and the word Loop on the pavement. The paint is getting faded and needs to be repainted, but you can still make the arrows out. Almost all is pavement, but there is a portion that is hard packed limestone which is in good condition. This is a ride that we would make again if we were in the area.

Wild Goose State Trail

Below Average

September, 2016 by deverson_tl

We rode the entire trail plus a short side trip on the auto route in the Horican Marsh for a total of 72.5 round trip miles on September 20. Much of the trail has lost its limestone and is now just grass or slippery, hard packed dirt. There are many small holes that are hard to see due to the shade. These holes are not pleasant to ride over. The Dodge County portion of the trail is better maintained than the Fond Du Lac County portion. If you live near the trail you would probably ride it, but I would not travel any distance to ride this trail. My wife and I travel the state to ride different trails. We won't be coming back to this one.
