Glacial River Trail

A Return to Finish the Trail

October, 2019 by buehler868

I returned on one of those great Midwestern fall days to complete the portion of the Glacial River Trail south of Jefferson. I found the few miles that were in-fact a former railroad. The rest of the trail is in the WI-26 freeway corridor or on rural roads and city streets, but the trail is all paved.
The city of Fort Atkinson is very attractive with trail amenities including public art. I again found that the TrailLink map was a necessity as the signage on the tail is sparse.
My only negative is there is no need to do the on-highway portion south of N Wright Rd unless you want to continue to the connection to the Spring Brook Trail that will take you into Janesville.
For an out and back trip consider places where you can use the parallel old WI-26 for a different landscape view.

Glacial River Trail

Paved Trail Makes for a Nice Long Ride

September, 2019 by buehler868

The Glacial River Trail in the Rock River valley is untypical for Wisconsin state trails in that it is entirely paved and not a rail-to-trail. It has a great mix of segments in the WI-26 freeway corridor, city streets and rural roads, with some good grades. I did the north part of the trail from Jefferson to the junction with the Wild Goose State Trail. There are no services provided by the trail owner, but the trail is free to use. The signage for the trail-turns is minimal so the Trail-Link map downloaded on your smart phone is a must. I especially enjoyed my ride thru the river towns of Jefferson, Johnson Creek and Watertown, where I took the time to ride around the downtowns. I will come back someday to do the south portion.

Glacial River Trail

Uninhabited but lovely

September, 2019 by wilsonae

I grabbed the trail north of Janesville on my road bike. Crossed the bridge over the highway and did about a mile on the county road before winding through a new housing development and finding the actual trail. It's in great shape, lots of gentle rolling hills and a couple of roundabouts but not a single person anywhere along the trail. I rode to Milton and most of the trail parallels the highway so it's loud on one side but beautiful and agricultural on the other side. I saw hawks and finches and no humans of any kind. It was pretty sweet. I only gave it 4 stars because of the highway driving . Otherwise it's a 5-star paved trail.

Rawley Point Trail

OK trail

September, 2019 by irmaiden

I rode this trail today and thought it was pretty good,but it has some issues that I didn't like. The trail was kind of rough,and it was tough to keep up any speed because there were not too many straightaways. There were mud spots I had to carefully go through,spots in the path that would narrow down to a foot,and a lack of signs for the bike trail. I definitely prefer paved trails over crushed limestone and the many roots popping out of the ground. It was worth it to try the Mariners Trail and the Rawley Point Trail,but there are much better trails in the Milwaukee area like the Bugline,Hank Aaron Trail,and the Oak Leaf Trail.

Mariners Trail

Underwhelming

September, 2019 by irmaiden

I rode this trail today and was underwhelmed. It is very average. I rode from the south end all the way to the end,and then rode the Rawley Point Trail. On the way back on the Mariner's trail I rode on the same side of the trail that I started on. Why on earth are there so many signs saying "do not enter" on the way back heading south? There is no path on the other side of the road,and it's a 45 MPH road. I would not ride on that road.

Mariners Trail

beautiful view of the lake!

August, 2019 by danrobinsonwi

Very nice, easy ride with fantastic views of Lake Michigan the whole way.

East River Trail

great trail!

August, 2019 by pechen11

Perfect for kids and families!

Loop the Little Lake

Enjoyable

August, 2019 by jmachek1115_tl

Tied this loop into our Friendship trail ride. The Trestle Bridge was awesome with nice views. The loop offered nice views of the lake. Not nearly as many people using the trail as I had expected for a Saturday. Those that were on the trail were using good trail etiquette.

Friendship State Trail

Western end to Trestle Bridge

August, 2019 by jmachek1115_tl

Started at the Umland Road parking area. First few miles were crushed stone. A few areas required some caution, especially the downhill, cause of slight water damage to the trail. Very enjoyable ride. Was surprised how few people were on the paved section of trail. Really enjoyed the Trestle Bridge

Tomorrow River State Trail

Fun Trail with a few downsides

August, 2019 by dnh0506

Well maintained trail that takes you through different scenery. For an extra stop you can hop off the trail onto Tomorrow River Rd and head into Amherst to visit Central Waters Brewery. Biggest downside is the unfinished trail in Amherst Junction that lead to some confusion, and once into Waupaca county we had to turn around due to trees being down over the trail (from the major storms earlier this summer).

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Anston to Shawano Lake

August, 2019 by bgereau

I rode from Anston(west of Howard) to Shawano Lake .. 46 miles round trip. Comparing Brown county section to Shawano county... Brown county is a much easier section. The trail is pretty much all hard dirt with some areas of refreshed crushed gravel going through Pulaski. The recently downed trees from storms have been cut from the trail. The trail is mostly in trees so not too much hot sun and wind isn’t a riding factor. Shawano county is not really hard, but it is harder than Brown County. I’m no pro but I do ride about 3 times a week and this section was a workout. Glad I had a little wider tire as the surface type kept changing throughout from crushed cinder, grassy path, crushed stone and hard dirt. There were some soft muddy areas from recent rains. Some areas the trees were growing in over the trail and could use some trimming back. Shawano had a lot of deer or horse flies. Bring bug spray, I did not and they bite. Overall it was a good ride.

Lakefront Bike Path

Lovely Trail, but Mileage Needs Updating.

July, 2019 by kempro

Spent a wonderful summer morning enjoying the cool lake breeze and astonishing views. I don’t understand why the mileage is posted as 1.9 miles, when I rode approximately 5-6 miles. I started neat the Blue Harbor resort and rode out on the pier to the end. Then I followed the generous lakeside train north past numerous parks and a couple marinas. There is one large hill on the north end, but take it as there’s more to enjoy above that!
