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.

Virgil L. Gilman Trail

started from east end

July, 2024 by davec179

Nice trail with cool bridge over Fox River. However, came across two viaducts west of the river with homeless people literally doing drugs as I rode through. I didn’t feel very safe.

Spring Creek Greenway Trail

Challenging trail

July, 2024 by luebeckm1

The section from Bruce Road to the 355 tollway is gravel (not crushed limestone) and rather rough. The remainder of the trail westward is crushed limestone and is very scenic. At the 355 tunnel, you can head north on the Veterans Memorial trail which is asphalt and in excellent shape, super smooth with no annoying cracks. Night and day difference from the start of this trail.

Lake George Trail

Hidden 5-mile Gem when you combine with the Hammond Wolf Lake path

July, 2024 by scb324

5 mile circle of Wolf Lake and Lake George . The 3.5 miles along Wolf Lake are lovely. The West side goes parallel to Toll Road but you are mostly hidden by reeds and brush. Can extend up to Lake Michigan for 1 mile lake front ride. Makes over all ride about 8 or 9 miles. Lots of parking at Hammond Wolf Lakefront.

Illinois & Michigan Canal State Trail

Excellent trip

July, 2024 by yanviverosh

Excellent visit for the second time we were able to make this trip from Joliet to Peru, it was wonderful, it is a safe road I think it lacks some maintenance but in general it is a very good, recommendable

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.

Root River Pathway (Route of the Badger)

Enjoyable Trail but you’ll need your phone!

June, 2024 by bradleymalcom04

Biked this trail yesterday to complete a loop with the Lake Michigan pathway. The trail itself is enjoyable…getting out your phone to figure out where you are is not! The trail does have signs, but all signs are located in places where you don’t need help. I actually starting laughing every time I saw a sign with the arrow pointing forward on a straightaway. Almost every time I had to make a decision, there was no sign anywhere! Poor planning.

City of Franklin Hike and Bike Trail (Route of the Badger)

No complaints. Just a short paved trail.

No complaints. Just a short paved trail.

Muskego Recreation Trail (Route of the Badger)

Ride at your own risk is correct. This trail is not maintained. Started over by Muskego county park. It gets a little better as you go towards the Franklin bike and bike trail but it's nothing to go out of your way for.

Great Western Trail (DeKalb, Kane)

Long, straight and flat

June, 2024 by garyhome24

Biking between Sycamore and Lily Lake the trail is long, straight and flat - if that’s your kind of thing. Just lock your wheel straight and go. Trees offer protection from the sun and a nice farmland setting to view along the way, but could be monotonous for some. Trail parallels Route 64 on this section so there is some road noise, but no busy streets to cross. The crushed limestone is in great condition making for a nice relaxing ride. We much preferred the eastern end from Lily Lake to St Charles, but we started to encounter more trail traffic. A foray into Leroy Oakes Forest Preserve is worthwhile.

Orland Grassland Trail

great trail for biking and walking

June, 2024 by jackmur4

Great trail. Good mix of hills.

Lake Andrea Multi-Use Path

Very nice ride

June, 2024 by tvisintainer1

This path is very fun to ride. At the right time of day the reflections on the lake are awesome.
