Nice Trail!

August, 2022 by the_masseuse

Bikepacking cross country

August, 2022 by adb.builder

I rode the entire length of the trail on August 1st. Great trail. Great surface. Lots of services along the way. Very busy with cyclists and walkers, but not crowded. Met other bikepackers on the route. Recommended!!

400 State Trail

Reedsburg to Elroy and Back, 44 Miles July 27, 2022

July, 2022 by djones223

There was a light rain overnight so the trail was a little soft in places, otherwise it was in very good condition. Much of the trail runs along the Baraboo River and there were views of limestone bluffs and many small lakes. Stopped for a rest at the north end of the trail at the Elroy Commons area. The bathrooms were very clean and even had showers. On the way back to Reedsburg, I stopped at Wonewoc to have a good lunch at the Neighbors Sandwich Bar and Deli. Connected to it is a coffee bar and ice-cream shop.
Be aware there is no restroom at the Reedsburg trailhead. There are several along the trail though.

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Great but Bowler to Eland…

July, 2022 by jdorner.sfx

Downed trees from Bowler to Eland. I hope they can clear them so this August I can bike it again.

Green Circle Trail

We rode this trail on July 21, 2022

July, 2022 by jmziesmer

This is a narrow trail with lots of meandering around trees through the woods. It is a well packed surface when on the trail itself. Be prepared to navigate challenging hills on a gravel surface. The only paved surface is when you are on city roads traveling between trails. We missed the loop that went over the river and ended up riding in the city more than we would have liked. We suspected the error and opened this apps map on a phone and were able to navigate to get back on the trail fairly easily. We rode the entire loop and came up with 22 miles.

While there may be restrooms near the trail, the trail itself isn't marked to indicate where they are. Don't expect all parking areas to include them, as they do not. We did see an outhouse in a picnic area adjacent to the trail, but I do not recall where that was.

Tomorrow River State Trail

Rode trail July 19-20, 2022

July, 2022 by jmziesmer

We rode this trail in two segments. The first leg was from the Plover trailhead to Elkins Road. Round trip it was 30.37 miles. There is no trailhead parking in Plover. This app states there is one .2 miles from the trailhead. There is a fairly new subdivision in that area, that may have taken resulted in that parking area being removed. We parked at the grocery store just a few feet south of the trailhead. This leg was clean and well groomed. Approximately 70% is open, with no large canopy of trees. The riding surface is well packed. There are no bathroom facilities. The detour was WELL MARKED. It is approximately 1.7 miles before you get back on the trail. It does have at least 2 SIGNIFICANT hills in one direction to navigate.

The second leg we rode from Manawa to Elkins Road. Round Trip 30.97 miles. There is no trailhead parking in Manawa. We parked in a residential area just off the trailhead on Wolf Road. The trail was well maintained with no tall weeds. Heading west is a slow steady uphill. There is a BRAND NEW bridge about 1.5 miles from Manawa. There are no bathrooms. About 5 miles from Manawa there is trail parking available. The trail was fairly open with trees on both sides of the trail. The signage as you are leaving Manawa indicates it is 14.8 miles to Scandinavia. That is inaccurate. It is closer to 10.5 miles. Another sign as you get closer to Scandinavia has the correct distance.

The total distance round trip is 61.34 miles, or 30.67 one way. I suspect the detour is not included in the 29 miles one way listed by this app. Since you cannot "teleport" to where the trail resumes, I included it here. :)

Green Circle Trail

Entire Green Circle Trail loop is open

July, 2022 by jbuchhol

As a board member of the Green Circle Trail, I just wanted everyone to know that the entire trail loop is open and in excellent condition as of July 2022. A new section of trail was routed around the airport fence in June. Just be sure to follow the newly installed direction signs; many apps will still have a map that shows the old section. Visit the Green Circle's official website at greencircletrail.org for more information and updated maps. Enjoy the trail!

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Bowler to Shawano

July, 2022 by joglazewski

Surface nicer than expected of non paved trail. Be aware of four mile road ride( quiet) heading into Shawano. Trail blocked by large tree 100 yards west of Bowler covered bridge.
