Badger State Trail

Nice trail, but…

August, 2022 by kd4q9cvkp8

I rode the whole trail today on my way from Madison to Freeport, Illinois. The trail was great except for two closures. The first one, north of Monticello, must have included the bragged-about tunnel, since I never saw it. This closure was well-marked with bike detour signs. The second closure, just north of Monroe, was marked with a sign that says, “find alternate route.” I chose to ride west here to Highway 69, which was had cars whizzing by at 65. I don’t know why, on a State trail, Wisconsin doesn’t immediately fix this two closures, especially when they want to charge you to use it.

Red Cedar State Trail

Scenic trail

August, 2022 by janeen.bain

We road from Menomonie to Downsville and back. Parking and restrooms at both places. Flat, shady, and scenic ride along the river. We only wish we had time for the whole trail.

County Highway PP Linear Parkway Trail

More to come

August, 2022 by steveschmidt1002

The trail is asphalt with easy inclines and views of the Sheboygan river at Esslingen Park. At the west end, it translates onto the bike-friendly streets of Kohler with a lot of outdoor public art installations. The east end will soon extend into Sheboygan proper with an extension of the asphalt and then onto city streets with bike lanes. I made it all the way to the Sheboygan South Pier District and lighthouse - a very pleasant way to spend the morning!

La Crosse River State Trail

Bikepacking cross country

Beautiful Trail!

Rode from Cottage Grove to Lake Mills. What a fun trail to ride. I look forward to riding this trail again and riding on to other towns in the trail.

Hillsboro State Trail

Looked great but a rough ride

August, 2022 by emmettbrown

We planned to start our ride from the beginning of the Hillsboro then continue on to the 400 south to La Valle and back, then stop at the Hillsboro Brewing Company. It started off great but got very rough with what appeared to be a light fresh layer of gravel, but the type used for driveways and not crushed. It was loose and not easy to ride on compared to the 400 trail. My wife couldn't ride on it as she just felt unstable. We had to turn back after about 1/3 mile and drive 5 miles up the road to Union Center. We changed our ride to go from there to Elroy. Much better. If our bikes had suspension forks I'm sure it would have helped. I'm sure they are trying to upgrade the trail some but they should have used crushed gravel.

Badger State Trail

Monroe Wi toward Monticello

July, 2022 by dogstites

Beautiful ride on the trail. There was a bridge out and we had to take a detour onto country roads, but it was a quiet ride. Trails were great! Mix of sunshine and open air to cooler rides in the trees. Did not make it to Monticello…but next time!

Green Circle Trail

Great Trail!

July, 2022 by baschr1

Great trail. Well marked. I will definitely be back to ride this one again soon!
