Green Circle Trail

Spectacular trail

July, 2024 by mmaryandarturo

Lots of shade and curves. 90% on trail and 10% on non-busy roads. Trail well taken care of. Mostly limestone with many wooden bridges. A few busy intersections to cross though but all had traffic lights. Be careful though because some of trail is made for a single rider and not enough room for an oncoming biker to go by. A few speedsters on trail, so take those curves (some blind curves) slowly and carefully. Lots of absolute stunning scenery at every turn. I loved it, minus those speedsters¿¿¿¿¿

Green Circle Trail

Awesome trail - Well Marked

July, 2024 by t5n8nj6tsn

Absolutely the best marked trail I’ve ever been on. Lots of variety on this trail. Gravel, a few small hills, boardwalk sections, road parts, lake and river views. Beautiful Saturday so the trail was busy in spots, but not overly so in my opinion. Road the entire route with no issues until about 3 miles from the end there were a couple men and a woman gravel bikes that thought they were the only ones on the trail and came around a blind turn full speed completely on my side so I had to veer off trail.

400 State Trail

Top notch Wisconsin trail, but...

June, 2024 by danwarwick

Awesome trail, but could be superb if grass was cut in the center of the trail. I have a trike, which makes it difficult. I managed, but was slow moving. Lots to see, with a variety of scenery. Be prepared for horseflies.

Omaha Trail

The last time I rode this trail it was in need of some TLC. We enjoyed the tunnel, many bridges and low traffic.

Great Rail Trail!

May, 2024 by tannermumm

My dad and I started at the trail head at Reedsburg after getting some great tips and info from Sue at the restored rail depot by the parking lot. The ride out from Reedsburg passes through some busy streets and the first mile or two were a little slick after yesterday’s rain. But this trail just got better and better the farther we rode! The rail trail is primarily crushed pea gravel and after a few miles it dried up real nice and was very stable and reliable. From Reedsburg to La Valle we rode through a mixture of woodland filled with wildflowers (purple/white flox, white daisies and pink columbine) as well as lush marshland filled with water fowl, turtles and muskrats! My favorite parts were the sandstone bluffs that rose majestically over the marshlands and just beyond Le Valle the trail cuts straight through 20 foot high limestone. We ate in La Valle at Fishy’s Bar and grill which had some excellent burgers and fries. At Reedsburg we ate at Ronnie’s which also had great food. Overall I would highly recommend this trail!

Tomorrow River State Trail

East end parking

May, 2024 by banker.kyle

There's no parking at the Manawa end. If you're wanting to start from the east end, there is a small dirt parking area in Ogdensburg just off the trail. The 5 miles of trail from Ogdensburg to Manawa are pocketed with horse hoof imprints so you don't miss much by starting there. The location is off highway K/E and Moore St in Ogdensburg. Map coordinates are 44.454120, -89.029714

Great trail, otherwise. Scenic and peaceful. It will be much better once its complete.

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.

Elroy-Sparta State Trail

Tunnels make the trail 5 star

October, 2023 by mrmikesch

Rode this trail over two days. Camped at Tunnel Trail Campground just east of Wilton. Rode Wilton to Sparta. Two tunnels in the section. Very cool!! The trail surface was mostly OK, except where the trail maintenance tractor had driven on it when the trail was soft and left ruts from the tractor tires. The section from Wilton to a Elroy has one tunnel. Small descent after the tunnel and then flattens out on the way to Elroy. Least favorite part of this ride.

Great Trail, consistent quality!

October, 2023 by kylepuntney

Great trail. I did the full 22mi and back. Started at the south end. Very easy to follow, very little interaction with traffic. A few bathroom breaks on the way. Almost perfectly flat from start to finish. (I was wishing for a hill or two at one point. Got a bit monotonous.) Clean, well maintained, no hazards. It’s NOT paved but felt paved most of the time. A couple of the bridges could use a bit of work, but I never felt unsafe on them. Very quiet! At times I felt like I was alone in the world! ¿¿¿¿¿

Omaha Trail

Fantastic Trail

September, 2023 by jmbahe

Surface is paved with older asphalt. About half smooth and half bumpy. Bridges are in very good shape. Scenery is amazing. No steep hills. Only one hill with gradual incline and decline.

400 State Trail

Good Experience

September, 2023 by jmbahe

Trail is almost completely flat. Surface consists of compacted crushed stone and soil, and is in good shape with no ruts or holes. A few of the bridges are rough. Nice and quiet, not too crowded. Lots of convenience stores and bathrooms along the way.
