Cheese Country Recreation Trail

Not a biking trail. For ATV's.

July, 2024 by mvmadison105

Road Mineral to calamine and back on a ebike with 1.5" tires at 45psi. Scenic but rather brutal ride. Sections are ok but then you come across sections that are really rough. The atvs go fast relative to a bike rider plus generate lots of dust and noise. I would not recommend it for biking.

Muskego Recreation Trail (Route of the Badger)

If they’re trying to discourage bikes, it’s working.

July, 2024 by corey.kopenski

In rough shape for cycling. The trail is a mishmash of gravel, crushed or deteriorating rocks/asphalt.

If it were crushed limestone that would be a great improvement. It doesn’t have to be paved over to make it better.

It’s too bad because it’s a nice quiet ride that isn’t too long if you want a quick ride after dinner etc.

Devil's River State Trail

Great Trail!

July, 2024 by mike.tasche5846

Just road this trail for the first time. Short drive from Sheboygan and well worth it. Well marked so easy to follow and most of the trail is wide enough for side by side riding. Several bridges, two really high ones and very scenery. Crushed rock is very hard but we did air down the tires for excellent traction. Our speed was mostly around 15mph but we did reach 20 a few times. Nicely designed and well maintained!

Stower Seven Lakes State Trail

Well worth the trip!

July, 2024 by larrydabeerman

This is a very well-maintained trail! The trail is crushed limestone and is suitable for all kinds of bikes, skinny road tires may have an issue with one section for about 1/8 of a mile where the trail gets a little rough. The locals are super friendly! The only con is the horsefly that seemed to trail us the whole way We will definitely go back.¿

Military Ridge State Trail

Beware of ruts and loose sand!

July, 2024 by bcurley_tl

While this is mainly a beautiful trail, the section from Dodgeville to Mt Horeb has some technically challenging spots. Many major ruts and lots of loose sand that may grab your rear wheels. The stretch from Mt Horeb to Msn is Way better.

Conover-Phelps Trail

Lots of hills

July, 2024 by redpine2001

Started in Phelps becomes very hilly, pavement ends after two miles. Then crushed gravel, trail flatten out. Pretty remote not my favorite. Stay with the Villas county trails. ¿¿

incredible bike ride

July, 2024 by mlpakieser

I bicycled this path today the fox river Trail It was absolutely beautiful. Going from urban sounds just suburban areas and then finally into farming. I rode out to mile 12 and then turned around and came back. It was incredible. Nature sounds were everywhere.

La Crosse River State Trail

Buy pass first!

July, 2024 by rembrandreadoran

Don’t waste time looking for a physical location to buy pass prior to biking. Go online. And buy a daily pass in 2 minutes for $5.23. I lost 75 minutes driving to 3 locations before I realized online was an easy option.
