we started in Belleville at library park and went south, hoping to go to tunnel and turn around. tunnel and path were closed off after 3.4 miles - there was a detour around on roads but I had kids with me and wanted to stay on the path so we just returned to Belleville. Beautiful path.
Rode from Monroe to Mineral Point on a gravel bike loaded down with camping gear and it was just fine. It was a weekday; other traffic on trail was minimal. Some really pretty segments right along a gently-gurgling Pecatonica, other segments a slog, but that tends to be the case on any rail-trail. I did not experience any of the very uncomfortable conditions other bike travelers have reported - maybe a product of the weather, or it being a weekday, or the trail association doing a good job with upkeep. Either way, don't feel like a mountain bike or fat bike is necessary, and if you're concerned about ATV traffic go on a weekday.
I got an AirBnB in Dane so I could ride this trail again and it is still my favorite for road biking. It is immaculate and flat, with nary a tree root nor chipmunk hole on the path. I rode end-to-end two days in a row and it was spectacular both times. It's a good 20-mile roundtrip of lovely scenery, river views, mostly uninterrupted rural beauty. The section in town is fine though chopped up in short bursts of pathway, but also immaculate. Especially once you cross Highway 12 heading north it is virtually empty of kids and larger bike parties and street crossings. A joy to ride.
Do note: Just before Mile Marker 10, the path is closed and you have to turn around.
Started in Brodhead and made it to Albany. Very quiet and there are some beautiful bridges, but it's pretty sandy in some places
I rode from Gotham to Twin Bluff yesterday and wouldn't recognize the lovely trail from the reviews posted here. It must have been overhauled In the past year or two. It was well maintained and lovely. There's even a rest stop with a portable toilet, covered area with a picnic table and trash receptacle. Great scenery!
Went on a Friday in the afternoon and there were few people out. This trail has some great scenery and the Sauk area has a lot of things to see and do. The trail is 100% paved and is an easy ride. You can also visit the chamber of commerce building for more trail information, a bike trail pass, and free parking.
My intentions were to finish my biking day in Wisconsin that I had started on the Great Sauk State Trail by traveling the US Highway 12 Path from Sauk City to Middleton, WI. Of the total 18 miles, the separated path totals about 11 miles. I decided to use some back roads to limit the stretch I would be using the paved shoulder on Highway 12. This turned out to be a poor choice for me as I only had the energy to make it to Springfield Corners. On the way back I stayed the whole time on the Highway 12 path or paved shoulder. The countryside viewed from the back roads was beautiful, but the grades were steeper, with more hills, than just staying on US 12. This is logical as the US 12 highway is a modern limited access highway which was designed to have low hills and flatter grades.
The separated path is paved and still in good riding condition. The paved shoulder is separated from the outside highway lane by about 2 feet of extra pavement and maybe 2 feet of rumble strip to warn any vehicles diverging from the lanes. For the bicyclist, the paved riding width is about 1-bicycle width wide. The paved shoulder was in good riding condition, but weeds are growing in the pavement cracks and this might eventually cause some distortions.
I was comfortable riding on the paved shoulder. This is acceptable for experienced adult riders but not for families. There is traffic noise of course but the countryside is rural open lands to view. If I had stayed on Rte 12 I would have been able to make it to Middleton and back.
Very nice, pretty trail. We were staying closer to Baraboo however and wanted to enter where the app says the trail ends, which definitely doesn’t exist. We had to travel significantly farther down 78 to find an entrance.
Grateful to have this recreational trail in my community. It serves as a welcomed source of exercise, bird's-eye view of wildlife & vitamin D therapy. I thank & appreciate all who's efforts to make this trail become a reality.
Beautiful ride felt real safe after riding in south Florida. Just enough elevation change for fun and not work. Enjoy
A gravel/crushed limestone trail with some shade in parts. I rode it from London east 20 miles today after it poured yesterday and the trail was bone dry. I’d recommend having 28s on your bike as smaller tires can work but it’d be a little more difficult. There was a small stretch on streets but it was well marked and little traffic. I loved the bridges over the water and the small tunnel you pass through (keep your hands on the bars as it’s bumpy in there). There was a smallOverall a great trail.
I rode a portion of this trail last year and returned again to ride the entire distance. Trail is in better condition than some of the asphalt trails I've ridden in the past. Starting in New Glarus the trail crosses the Edelweiss Country Club so watch for golf carts at the crossing! Monticello greets riders with bathrooms and a water fountain. The 9 mile stretch between Monticello and Albany is the longest between towns. Once in Albany there is a gas station on the trail and a nice picnic bench behind it if you're taking a break. Last 7 miles into Brodhead ends the nearly 23 mile journey. Caution is needed with the rabbits, chipmunks, turtles, and occasional rodent hole on the trail. Trail surface is very hard and compact...very smooth. Maintenance was bushwhacking outside of Albany and I noticed patches of gravel where trail repairs were made. I give this trail 5 stars for what it has to offer...and it offers everything a trail rider would need. Summer late afternoons bring out the gnats and flying insects but if you keep moving it's not a real problem unless you stop so make sure you have bug spray if needed. Hope you enjoyed your ride on this trail as I have!
