Trail from Elroy to Kendall had bridges out and multiple closed sections. The trail from Sparta south was much better but Bridge 3 is long and wet- must walk it and need lights with you. Jim
I rode this trail from end to end and back on June 22, 2021. Do not listen to those that complain about the trail conditions. This trail is in great shape. if you start in Richland Center know that there are not any amenities other than one porta-potty about 6 miles outside of Richland Center, so bring the water and food you need for your intended journey. Trail conditions are quite good and will allow you to ride through farmland, along the river, through a marsh, and through a pine forest. And my personal highlight, pay attention to the edge of the trail for the first couple miles outside of Lone Rock where you cant find prickly-pear cactus along the trail's edge.
Rustic condition, but still very rideable. Lots of bridges and isolated pretty country.
Decent trail. Nice and quiet with nice scenery. Not very well maintained asphalt but very rideable. No clear parking near the start of the trail in camp Douglas so just parked on grass near the bathrooms. Tunnel was short but nice and cool.
Rode part of this trail today (just a beginner here) and absolutely LOVE it! Started in Rosendale. So much wildlife, flowers and just amazing trees. Will be riding many more times in the future!
We rode the trail from London to Cottage Grove (10 miles) and back again. Although the trail map didn’t show it, there is parking at Cottage Grove. The trail was in good spring condition, a small section was a little bumpy due to some horse prints. Looking forward to riding more of this trail farther east.
No major road noise, dappled shady trail, reasonable crushed gravel surface, well maintained small bridges, really cool tunnel experience.
This is a nice trail to run on. Hope they length it some day.
This was a great trail!! Good routing, maintenance of the trail and fantastic nature scenery with great access to gas stations and stores if needed!! I can’t wait to visit again!!
I walked this trail on a cold winter day and found it to be generally cleared of snow which was great, having nice views of the river and easy to access. I would definitely do it again.
I'm an avid road cycling racer and triathlon racer, and I always need to know if the trails are COMPLETELY paved for training rides. The pavement is 99% smooth and clean with only a few bumps and cracks in its entire 11 mile length, along with a few small twigs and branches which is to be expected. Country road and trail crossings are well marked and safe. It is mostly open fields to either side so there is a bit of wind to contend with but nothing better for training. I would check the wind speed and direction before heading out with race wheels. It was too windy for my tri bike so I used my road bike. I started in Prairie du Sac at the Veteran's Memorial park where there is ample, safe parking and restrooms. The trail can be accessed from the parking lot if you go north along the river, where you can cross a wooden bridge to view the river. You can continue 100 meters more along the river but then it curves back south past the soccer fields and takes you up a little hill with a switchback to the right, to join the trail that follows Water St., going north again. You can also just ride up the park entrance road to get to the trail again, as it parallels Water St. A couple crossings in the first 2 miles but then you can pretty much kick it into high gear for the next 8 miles. You can also ride the trail south from the parking lot as well. The trail cuts through private property near a condo/apartment building, then heads south for a little less than a mile. More of a sidewalk than a trail at that point but it follows the river, goes past a brewery-eatery and then pretty much ends.
We rode r/t Lone Rock to Richland Center. The trial was repaired since our last attempt in 2019. The bridges are great now. Some soft spots here and there, but no problems on our hybrid bikes. We noticed several metal bar bridges (like they use out west to control animal traffic), and expect they are being used in the wetter areas because they hold up so well. Again, no problems. 29.1 miles with a side trip to Culvers for a bathroom break & cup of soup.
