Devil's River State Trail

Great trail!!

September, 2021 by salinaburtnett

Beautiful trail! Easy ride! We ended up doing the whole trail round trip which was just under 30 miles with our kids. Stopped in Maribel on the way back at Gunslinger’s for some much needed fuel(burgers) and more water!

Glacial River Trail

north branch Glacial River Trail

August, 2021 by mem9622

We absolutely loved this trail. We started near the airport in Watertown Wisconsin and took the back roads all the way to the end of the marked trail. There’s a small 2 mile segment that’s a long state route 16 but it’s a dedicated trail on the side of that road. Loud traffic but just a small section so not that bad of a deal. Everything else is beautiful country roads very little traffic absolutely wonderful rolling Hhills and farmland. It took us three hours round-trip very leisurely pace of 9 mph Be sure to eat at the Main Street diner in Watertown

Newton Blackmour State Trail

Great trip!

August, 2021 by pechen11

Our family of 7 completed this trail this summer and had a blast. My wife and I have 5 kids ages 4-13 and it took us a few visits to knock out individual sections. We started on the east side of the trail and moved west and the section going into New London was closed unfortunately so we stopped our trip a little bit short. Great overall experience.

Devil's River State Trail

Home Trail

July, 2021 by kjacquart1

My wife and I consider this our "home" trail. We do it several times per year. One of the attractions is the large pond on both sides of the trail north of Maribel. It's appearance is different each visit. There is also parking in Rockwood at the trail end but no facilities until you get to Francis Creek.

Oak Leaf Trail

Popped My Tire

July, 2021 by jlm3junk

The Menominee Parkway section is horrible! So many potholes! I popped my tire and had to get an Uber back. My first ever experience with an Uber, which was much better than my bicycling experience!

Eisenbahn State Trail

pretty good

July, 2021 by thomas.m.durbin

good for walking, great for biking.

Sheboygan Interurban Trail

Ozaukee County to Oostburg

July, 2021 by drprovanch

This trail is very scenic as we biked north from the Ozaukee trail. We immediately could tell the difference as this trail had a more wooded or nature feel. We stopped and turned back at the trail’s end just short of Oostburg rather than following the quiet roads the short distance into the village. We wish the trail continued further into Sheboygan County without the reliance on county highways. It’s a great start!

Ozaukee Interurban Trail

Port Washington north

July, 2021 by drprovanch

We did the northern leg the second day, parking at the DOT park & ride lot at the I43 northern exit. The scenery is mostly farmland with flat terrain. There are areas with potholes which may be marked with painted circles. It is a great exercise trail as the lack of curves and people walking the trail allowed us to bike faster than normal. We continued further on the Sheboygan County trail at the north end before returning to Port Washington.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail

Mequon to Port Washington

July, 2021 by drprovanch

This is a very nice trail, well maintained and well marked when you’re biking quiet streets in the various communities. We stopped in Port Washington at a lakeside park for a break before returning to Mequon.

Devil's River State Trail

Gorgeous Trail!

July, 2021 by schomiam

The trail passes beautiful woods, swampy areas, and farmland. The trail is extremely smooth and my road bike went over it just fine. The trail is almost as wide as a road lane in many areas, and it's barely populated, making it perfect for biking with kids. Lots of black raspberries along the trail this time of year. The bridge about 2.5 miles out from Denmark is gorgeous and much higher up than I expected! The kids loved it!

Old Plank Road Trail (WI)

Nice ride from sheboygan to Greenbush it is a little bumpy but I don't think there are many traits that are without these problems. Lots of hill's and curves
