Fox River Trail (IL)

Scenic and rewarding.

August, 2020 by mlettvin

I'm pretty new to the area and haven't read all the other reviews here, but have enjoyed riding portions of this trail and will finish the whole thing soon. If you ride at night it gets dark because most of it is unlit wooded areas and there are few street lights. Only complaint is that as of Summer 2020, there are quite a lot of tree roots buckling the asphalt and even broken through in some spots. I have a road bike and any cycling enthusiasts know how harsh it can be to hit those anywhere above 15 mph without big tires or a suspension. There are also some bridges with uneven planking that will make you feel like you're dual-wielding two machine guns as you cross. A great trail overall but road bikes are in for a mild thrashing.

Kishwaukee River Recreation Path

Badger State Trail

tunnel currently closed

August, 2020 by jenbaldock

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.

Saelens Park Trail

fun for the family, especially little kids

August, 2020 by ed.slocum

It is a short, flat asphalt trail, so if the kids get tired it doesn’t take long to get back to the car. Also you can stop and have them swing in the playground. New this year is the frisbee golf. Share the trail with them.

Cheese Country Recreation Trail

Your gravel bike can handle it

August, 2020 by would.i.were

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.

Fox River Trail (IL)

warning about Hudson Park in Oswego

August, 2020 by ltlarrow

There is limited parking at the south end of the trail, as they have torn out the park to build condos. There is more parking, with a porta potty, a little ways north on IL Rt 25. Otherwise, the trail is superb in the south section. I have ridden every section south of Algonquin, and except for small portions where the pavement needs some work, and the bothersome on-road sections, this is a wonderful trail to ride.

Sugar River State Trail

Started in Brodhead and made it to Albany. Very quiet and there are some beautiful bridges, but it's pretty sandy in some places

Long Prairie Trail

some parts crushed stone

July, 2020 by gary.heissler

Nice flat trail, the majority of which is paved and shaded. There is a couple of miles of crushed stone but it was fairly smooth. There are some rough paved patches but overall it was a quiet and peaceful ride through farm country. We rode the entire 14 miles and back stopping in Capron at The Dairy Barn for fantastic pulled pork sandwiches and in Poplar Grove for some fresh squeezed lemonade at the Popular Grind.

Perryville Path

Poorly maintained path...not for road bikes....too much traffic

July, 2020 by jthrog

This path is in decent shape North of Harlem Road, but is in horrible shape South of it. The path is cracked throughout and has grass growing in it which lends to a very bumpy ride, especially on bikes that don't handle bumps very well. There are several busy intersections that need to be crossed. This path would be great for walking, and mountain biking or climbing training, but just isn't terribly fun due to the state of the path.

Jane Addams Trail

Northern section beautiful but in need of attention

July, 2020 by wilsonae

This time I started at the stateline trailhead and went south to Cedarville Road. It was a beautiful shady ride, I saw owls and birds and chipmunks and a few geese. Not much traffic, but about a quarter mile north of ORangeville, there was a huge tree broken over the whole trail, with just enough room to squeeze through. Then the following few miles between Brush Creek Road and Lane Road were really choppy: lots of shallow holes in the path and not a ride I would want to do on a road bike. It was scenic and private, and I loved that, but am glad for the shock absorbers on my hybrid. This would be a splendid trail if they paved it, but that seems unlikely. Still, a gorgeous ride, just one where you have to pay acute attention to the path in order to avoid some pitfalls....

Long Prairie Trail

A gem!

July, 2020 by barbara.hackel.5

Flat, paved and tree covered, what could be better. A few places pavement was in need of repair but very passable. From Capron about a half mile the tree covering was not as heavy but it was cloudy at the time so not a problem. We started on the Stonebridge trailhead which was crushed gravel and transitioned smoothly to the Long Prairie trail. Just a wonderful ride. Restaurants in Capron did not open till ten or eleven but there was a Casey’s gas station.

US Highway 12 Path

Take The Highway

July, 2020 by buehler868

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.
