Recent Trail Reviews

Cheese Country Recreation Trail

Not a biking trail. For ATV's.

July, 2024 by mvmadison105

Road Mineral to calamine and back on a ebike with 1.5" tires at 45psi. Scenic but rather brutal ride. Sections are ok but then you come across sections that are really rough. The atvs go fast relative to a bike rider plus generate lots of dust and noise. I would not recommend it for biking.

Muskego Recreation Trail (Route of the Badger)

If they’re trying to discourage bikes, it’s working.

July, 2024 by corey.kopenski

In rough shape for cycling. The trail is a mishmash of gravel, crushed or deteriorating rocks/asphalt.

If it were crushed limestone that would be a great improvement. It doesn’t have to be paved over to make it better.

It’s too bad because it’s a nice quiet ride that isn’t too long if you want a quick ride after dinner etc.

Military Ridge State Trail

Beware of ruts and loose sand!

July, 2024 by bcurley_tl

While this is mainly a beautiful trail, the section from Dodgeville to Mt Horeb has some technically challenging spots. Many major ruts and lots of loose sand that may grab your rear wheels. The stretch from Mt Horeb to Msn is Way better.

Badger State Trail

Stewart Tunnnel abandoned

July, 2024 by pressman3887

As of 7/7/24 no work done on tunnel. There isnt even a trail left, leading up to the tunnel. The tunnel project is a complete sham. Where is the 6 million dollars? Where did the insurance money go, for the bridge, north of Monroe? Time for someone to be held accountable.

Eisenbahn State Trail (Route of the Badger)

Fantastic trail for biking

July, 2024 by rkhilt

This trail exceeded our expectations. Scenery was beautiful and trails were in great condition. This seems to be a hidden gem. We rode from the Eden trailhead to Kewaskum. We will definitely ride this trail again.

Cheese Country Recreation Trail

Mismanaged

July, 2024 by pressman3887

Replace a bridge, with breaker rock up a 20 foot embankment. Where did the insurance money go? Close the tunnel, let land owners destroy the trail south of Monroe (driveways and drainage tubes). Please, who ever is in charge, QUIT.

Glacial Drumlin State Trail (Route of the Badger)

Cottage Grove to Lake Mills and Return

July, 2024 by t5n8nj6tsn

Nice, peaceful, perfect weather Monday morning ride. There is a tree laying over the trail @ 5.3 miles from Cottage Grove. Had to duck low, but was able to ride under it on the side that is still off the ground. No other issues for this part of the trail. Very enjoyable trail.

White River State Trail (Route of the Badger)

Perfect Morning Ride

June, 2024 by tvisintainer1

Did this ride starting at the East end. Loved the views and the trail was well maintained. I do wish the connection through Burlington as more direct or better signed.

trail flooded east of hwy 164

June, 2024 by y1htak2

We use this trail all the time. Flooded portion was about 100 feet long by 1 foot deep in places. Shoes got very wet as we pedaled through it. Ducks were happy. Usually the puddle is not this deep and long but we’ve had a lot of rain lately.

Cheese Country Recreation Trail

Not too bad to ride on with bike

June, 2024 by jessedirk

I live in Darlington and this trail is near my house so it’s nice for me to go during week and just bike to path. I rarely see any ATVs ironically, but I try to go on days/hours they may not be there. ATV riders though are respectful and I slow down or stop if big group goes by. This trail is doable with a mountain bike. I gave it 4 stars since the trail is getting pretty rutty probably due to all the rain we are having, mixed with the motorized vehicles on it.

Bugline Trail (Route of the Badger)

Bug Line Review from behind Costco Gas Station to Menomonee Park

June, 2024 by 5sdc5y9xrc

The trail was nicely paved and had frequent shady spots to take a break out of the heat. Slight incline as we made are way. It was approx 5 Miles on Bike to Menomonee Park. Went swimming, had a picnic. There is a shelter. Bathrooms, changing room , shower and bubblers.You can rent kayaks. Easier coming back as the incline slants down so areas to just coast. Surprised by the cars stopping for people to let them cross. I was impressed! My legs are jello but we had a great time!
