County Highway PP Linear Parkway Trail

More to come

August, 2022 by steveschmidt1002

The trail is asphalt with easy inclines and views of the Sheboygan river at Esslingen Park. At the west end, it translates onto the bike-friendly streets of Kohler with a lot of outdoor public art installations. The east end will soon extend into Sheboygan proper with an extension of the asphalt and then onto city streets with bike lanes. I made it all the way to the Sheboygan South Pier District and lighthouse - a very pleasant way to spend the morning!

Ozaukee Interurban Trail Connector (Route of the Badger)

carefull inline skaters

July, 2022 by jrlubar

There's a patch of tar/rubber repairing the trail just north of division st in thiensville that acted as a brake on my wheels and caused my skate to just lock in place with my forward momentum causing me to call forward. I didn't have a problem with the narrow repairs but the big patch was a problem without any notice that it was a different texture completely from the rest of the trail.

Lake Michigan Pathway

nice bike ride viewing Lake Michigan

July, 2022 by jclague26

My husband & I had a great bike ride along Lake Michigan. We thought it was going to be really hot out, instead it was misty with low cloud cover. It was 76* out, felt much cooler. Couldn’t see very far out into Lake Michigan, with the low clouds and mist but still a wonderful ride. I would recommend it. We started at Roosevelt Park, bike north to the end and came back. We will go back on a clear day. Nice ride!

Glacial Drumlin State Trail

Wakesha to Verona, WI via the Glacial Drumlin, Capital City, and Military Ridge Trails, June 28 - 29, 2022.

June, 2022 by djones223

I rode from east to west over two days from Wakesha to Cottage Grove with an extension to my Verona home in via roads, Capital City Trail, and Military Ridge trail. I did an overnight in Lake Mills at the Econo Lodge (clean and quiet and allow bicycles in their first-floor rooms).

Trail conditions were good except for "gopher holes" in multiple areas and overgrowth hanging over the trail in places. One needs to keep their eyes on the trail! Found a great coffee shop in Deerfield (Deerfield Coffeehouse) only a couple of blocks from the trail.

The most difficult (and dangerous) part of the trip was riding the series of roads from the Cottage Grove terminus of the trail to the Capital City trail. There was lots of fast traffic, no bike lane, and a detour due to the bridge construction on Femrite.

Glacial Drumlin State Trail

Madison to Milwaukee ride

June, 2022 by rastro1

we went from downtown Madison to downtown Milwaukee, an 88-mile ride, and for more than half of it we rode the length of the Gloacial Drumlin Trail. The trail is completely flat, virtually without hills although after Wales there is a long shallow downhill for about six or seven miles. The trail was in very good condition: in 52 miles, there were just three or four places where we hit loose gravel. Those were scary but just for a second. And there was no place anywhere that had broken glass on the trail. We took breathers about every 12 miles, and twice left the trail to go to the center of small towns. Recommended: the main square park in Lake Mills, nice and shady with benches. Also, the Bike Doctor in Dousman, but the best was lunch at Mama D's in Wales. The service was a little slow but it was perfect because all the sweat dried and we were so much more comfortable on our second wind, all the way to Milwaukee. After Dousman, the trail turns to pavement and that feels good. It's not crowded.

Also, almost the entire length of the trail is shaded. Whoever planned this trail really knew what he was doing. It raised our comfort. It was perfect for a long hike like ours.

Seven Waters Bike Trail

Trip from Illinois to Milwaukee

June, 2022 by hilltoppper

We planned to ride the entire trail on our trip north from Illinois to Milwaukee. The route was a great off-road link for our trip.

Trail marking could be better. I do not recall any signage of the Seven Waters Trail. There were no good maps on the route and the two we saw were faded and barely readable.

One mid-block crossing of the highway was interesting.

After going through Saller Woods we left the trail briefly to go into Rochester for food and rejoined it on Main on the east side of town. Found a decent convenience store on the road.

As I recall most of the south section of the trail was crushed limestone. Around Waterford a segment was paved. The worse conditions on the trail we’re the segment north of the Muskego access. Rather than nice limestone screenings it appeared to be a coarse material of ground recycled asphalt. We had wide tires but it was not pleasurable at all especially we were touring “loaded”. Road bikers will not appreciate the surface. To avoid anymore of that surface, we jumped off on Champion Drive to get to the end of the trail at Cape Road and ultimately to Ryan Road.

That last rough section and lack of way finding lowered our rating of the whole trail. Tie this trail to the Oak Leaf into Milwaukee and you would have a big winner.
