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.

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.

Root River State Trail

Might be biased..

September, 2016 by ruthef

We live in the Preston area and moved here due to my husband's love of flyfishing. The Root River trail runs along the Root, but also along Camp Creek by Preston. It's lovely to walk or bike these trails, but those of you who like to fish can find some fairly good access to the streams as well!

Root River State Trail

Trail closed between Peterson and Rushford

August, 2016 by fluegel.becky

Scheduled closure until 9/2/16to repair/resurface.much needed repairs will make this trail awesome!

Root River State Trail

August, 2016 by fluegel.becky

Rode this trail 7/16. Beautifully smooth and scenic from Preston to Peterson. Rough trail to Rushford. Had a great burger at Shawnee's in Rushford. Nice bike stop in Lanesboro with bathrooms, water,air-this area is busier during the weekend so expect a bit more company in this area. There are several legs in this trail, all well marked. Just an exceptional trail.

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.

Wildwood Trail

Peaceful

July, 2016 by dianebakke

This trail is amazing , very peaceful and shaded even on hot days . Wide enough for me to bring the kids !!! One thing I do Wish is that they was parking at the end of the trail , the end is closer to me so I start there !!

Cannon Valley Trail

Snakes & Branches

July, 2016 by zuujam

For a paid trail I would expect the trail to be better maintained.

There were many broken tree branches on the trail that should have been removed.

There were about 5 long snakes crossing the trail.

Shooting Star State Trail

Pleasant ride, couple of bumps

July, 2016 by krbailleucpa

This is a pleasant enough trail. Most of it runs along beside a highway, but in many places there are trees and bushes shielding you from the road. The trail is asphalt, but there are several places where there are big bumps, as if the asphalt was put down in sections, with small breaks between each section. Many of the bumps have been marked with red paint, but the paint has faded and the bumps are still difficult to steer around.
The eastern end, approaching Le Roy, moves away from the highway and winds around a state park. It's quite pretty and very secluded and shady.

Cannon Valley Trail

Loved the scenery!

June, 2016 by sandyt629

Recently did a round-trip on this trail in 90+ degree weather. The shaded portions saved us from the heat, and offered some beautiful scenery. Loved the rural route that took us through farms and along the river. Looking forward to exploring the area further!
