Starkweather Creek Path

Great Trail

June, 2024 by davep.mischka67

I’ve used this trail hundreds of times over the years as I head into Madison, Wisconsin from Sun Prairie to bike around the lakes. This is a great trail, with many a beautiful vistas.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail (Route of the Badger)

Depends what day

June, 2024 by drozey7

I used to love this trail, too many rude and inconsiderate riders from Milwaukee.

Jefferson County Interurban Trail

Map incomplete

June, 2024 by j.michael.klaus

As noted by the previous reviewer in June, 2023, this trail is now complete from its trailhead in Watertown to its junction with County Road F, south of Ixonia. It has been paved and open since October, 2022. Please update map. The map's satellite view actually shows the asphalt surface.

Picked up the trail by Holiday Inn and went North. Nice run with limited traffic… good paved path to put in a few miles

Bannerman Trail

great walking trail

March, 2024 by seubertmarylynn

I access the trail at the highway 73 opening. It is beautiful & quiet. My dogs love it.

Brown Deer Recreational Trail

Oak Leaf > Ozaukee Interurban Connector

February, 2024 by davesnyder1622

Officially part of the Milwaukee County Oak Leaf Trail system, this connector joins the Oak Leaf loop at Brown Deer Park and meets the Ozaukee Interurban Trail seamlessly at County Line Road. Combined with the Oak Leaf’s Lakefront, River Line and Zip Line segments, they provide straight, smooth pavement on railbed between downtown Milwaukee and Cedarburg, and beyond.

Peebles Trail

Crushed stone was upgraded to asphalt by the end of 2022. Much smoother ride from end to end. Still absent a direct link into Lakeside Park.

Very easy to walk and family friendly.

Oak Leaf Trail (Route of the Badger)

South Shore Line

November, 2023 by thejake91739

On a perfect weekday morning in early October I experienced by bicycle the South Shore portion of the Oak Leaf Trail.
I parked in the Grant Park Beach parking lot in South Milwaukee and headed north to Cupertino Park and then back, a distance of about twelve miles. Even though it was such a short ride it took me over two hours since I had to frequently stop for the awesome photo ops. The views of the lake and the Milwaukee skyline are sensational!
The trail is obviously beloved by the community. Not only were there plenty of other bicyclists, but there were a tremendous amount of friendly pedestrians walking their dogs or getting their steps in, especially in Bay View Park.
The South Shore portion of the trail has so much to offer: woods, tree lined streets with charming homes, wildflowers, squirrels, geese, shoreline, lots of curves, five parks, yachts, and plenty of benches to take in the marvelous views of Lake Michigan and the downtown skyline. Besides the lake views, I especially enjoyed the curvy trail covered in golden leaves through the woods of Grant Park.

TWO WORDS OF WARNING:
1) There are hills.
2) There are cracked and uplifted portions of trail through the woods of Grant Park due to tree roots. They will effectively work like speed bumps and slow you down a bit.

However, all in all, this is an enjoyable ride and certainly worthy of your time and five stars!

Mascoutin Valley State Trail

Meh Pt. 2

September, 2023 by the_masseuse

I forgot!! If you wanna ride the trail in its entirety.. the gap is about 8 miles

Mascoutin Valley State Trail

Meh..

September, 2023 by the_masseuse

A nice trail, well kept, just a little boring. I’m sure it’s time to shine is true fall with the leaves in full force. 0 bathrooms and tons of little black bugs atm.

Bugline Trail (Route of the Badger)

Excellent trail ride

September, 2023 by jcook1950_tl

trail is in perfect condition and while there were a fair number of users, it was never crowded or congested on this saturday morning. It was a joy to ride roundtrip from menomonee falls to north lake. The only steep hill is in merton just east of dorn road. The small towns of sussex and lannon have some taverns that look interesting. Menomonee park above the north part of the trail just west of lannon road is worth a visit.
