Sugar River State Trail

Great trail

November, 2023 by christyfry14

I’ve ridden this trail several times. It’s well kept and beautiful!

Beautiful trail

Cheese Country Recreation Trail

Beautiful countryside

November, 2023 by christyfry14

I rode just part this trail today on my electric fat tired bike (Monroe to South Wayne and back). Most of the trail is gravel/crushed limestone. I’m afraid if I didn’t have the fat tires it could have very difficult. It was a little rough also. Overall it was a beautiful ride, I just had to be very careful. It was a weekday and I didn’t see anyone else.

Willow Creek Path

One of my favorite places!

November, 2023 by crull9963

This is as close to the perfect path as you can get! Shaded and stays cooler in the summer and is also protected by wind and colder air in the winter! Tall trees border besides of the trail providing protection from the elements. Beautiful scenery, paved and well maintained. Only one small downfall is is no restrooms. There is also a small parking lot, midway on the path, between Harlem high school and Rock Cut on Zenith Parkway.

Duck Lake Nature Area Trail

Easy walk on a grassy former railroad bed

October, 2023 by markwboettcher

This trail was actually a former C&NW railway that served Lake Geneva and terminated in Williams Bay. Service to Williams Bay started in 1888 and ended in 1965. Service to Lake Geneva ended in 1975. Thanks to Maxine Thoorsell for starting the conversion of turning this former railway into a nature trail. It is an easy grass covered walk and the trail is 1.7 miles in length. You can also access the trail at the boat launch to the west...behind the barn. A separate trail that is part of this former railway extends from Williams Bay Northeast up to Hwy 50 in the Kishwaukeetoe Conservancy

Peace Trail

Beautiful ride!

October, 2023 by christyfry14

Rode the trail today from Beloit to Janesville and back. Of course, the trees were gorgeous! The path is paved the whole way. Much of the trail is along the river.

DeKalb-Sycamore Trail

No parking. Crosses busy streets.

October, 2023 by rdfranklyn

I live close enough to bike to this ‘trail’ but to get to it I have to cross a fairly busy street as there is no parking available. This ‘trail’ is more of an extra wide asphalt sidewalk more than anything else. I do enjoy the short ride once I’m on it.

North Central DuPage Regional Trail

Beware- Not 100% Asphalt

September, 2023 by desibianca

Misleading description- was anticipating an entire asphalt ride - instead found sections to be gravel. ¿

Long Prairie Trail

Nice area, but only part of trail is rideable

August, 2023 by sarahccaltvedt

After reading other recent reviews, we first rode the Stone Bridge Trail from Roland Olson Forest Preserve to Rockton and then headed back east to the Long Prairie Trail. Once we were on the Long Prairie, the surface changed to asphalt and was reasonably ok - some big bumps and cracks were marked - until we got to Caledonia. After that the surface got worse, and we turned around when we'd gone a mile or so farther. It was a nice ride with plenty of shade, and we managed to get in about 25 miles total. Still, it's a real shame that we can't ride from the east end of the trail anymore.
