Ahnapee State Park Trail

Nice Trail

May, 2017 by jeff.ritter

I have just completed the entire trail in 4 round-trip segments - Casco to Algoma, Luxemburg to Kewaunee, Forestville to Algoma, and Sturgeon Bay to Forestville. This is a good trail that requires a hybrid or mountain bike - generally dry with a few wet areas (no puddles), and rough in some spots due to horses. Good rural and forest scenery. Saw lots of deer and sandhill cranes.

400 State Trail

Dont ride from Elroy to Reedsburg

May, 2017 by feritozsoy

If you want decent speed, choose to route from reedsburg to Elroy. Otherwise you spend your time with pedalling all the time. There are no steeps on the trail but slightly goes up. It is kind of non-scenic version of Elroy-Sparta trail. Plus not recommended in rainy weather. Not Asphalt

Elroy-Sparta State Trail

Depends on your route!

May, 2017 by feritozsoy

This was my 5th trail on my bike trip between Mankato to Wisconsin Dells. If you use this trail from Elroy to Sparta, it is good. But if you start from Sparta to Elroy, It would be hard for you. Because the surface is little bit slightly up and you have to pedal during 80% of the trail. Hence the reason, you can`t enoy the nature. You always struggle with your pedal and breath. Plus not recommended at rainy weather. It is already gravel surface and you dont want to ride on soft clay. It gives you extra trouble. Still worth to see just the sake for tunnels. Btw Tunnel 3 surface needs to be fixed. It has been eroded by water leaking from ceiling.

La Crosse River State Trail

Smooth ride!

May, 2017 by feritozsoy

This was our 4th trail on our bike trip between Mankato to Wisconsin Dells. even though my priority is asphalt surface for biking, i still loved this trail. It seems so authentic. The trees are in shape and regularly. It was beautiful ride.

Great River State Trail

Just Scenic, the rest of them is nothing

May, 2017 by feritozsoy

This trail was our 3rd trail between Mankato,MN to Wisconsin Dells,WI. We used it from beginning to the end. When we started in Marshland Access, the trail was closed. We had no idea why it was closed. After a mile we saw a puddle on trail and we passed it. Half mile further we saw another puddle and passed it too. It was not a big deal. But after half mile we saw that river was flooded. We already made 160 miles from Mankato and did not want to give up. We passed the flooded river by walking with our bikes. The water was on our hips and pushing us away. It was the unforgettable moment. We enjoyed it. After that finally we got into real trail. It was in the wood. The surface is gravel and crushed stone. Also covered with alot of branches. This trail could be top if it was asphalt but with this bad surface , the rank will be always down. Just scenic.. Not really good for bikers. Maybe snowmobile or skiing would be the best choice for this trail.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail

Great ride!

May, 2017 by candice.altenburg

We started in Grafton and rode to the marina in Port Washington. It was the first road trail ride for my 13 year old son and he absolutely loved it! There are some hills, but nothing we couldn't handle. We had lunch in Port Washington and then rode back to Grafton. Very scenic... even got to see a pony on a farm!

Omaha Trail

Quick ride from Camp Douglas

Nice for a short bike ride. Trails getting a little rough in Worn areas

Glacial Drumlin State Trail

great trail - but watch for sink holes

May, 2017 by pam.justen.wilson

We rode this trail from Waukesha to Lake Mills. There were numerous sink holes dotting the trail, some bigger than others. None of them were marked.

Tomorrow River State Trail

From Manawa to Scandinavia

May, 2017 by glh_tl

After a bit of frustration trying to find a trailhead or parking spot in Manawa, I finally asked a man who was outside working on his lawn where to park. He kindly offered information and said parking along the roadside near the trail was fine. Apparently the bridge that connects to downtown Manawa, where parking is more available, is not yet complete. I parked along Wolf Road and picked up the trail at that point. (If you need to stop at a restroom before you hit the trail, there is a gas station in town.)

The ride was pleasant and the trail was in fine condition. There was quite a bit of diversity as it passed through wooded areas, farmland, and marsh areas. The grade is relatively flat with only a few mild hills along the way.

Plenty of birdlife activity kept the sights lively. Be sure to keep you eyes open along the water areas if you want to catch a glimps of turtles sunning on a log or peeking their heads out of the stream.

At Ogdensburg Pond, there is a small dam with a trail bridge that is a nice place to stop and enjoy the scenery before heading on to Scandinavia.

In Scandinavia, I'd suggest getting off the trail and riding the small town roads just north a bit to Silver Lake. Jorgenson Park is on the north side of the lake and well worth the stop. There's a shelter, planked walking trails, and a lovely little bench on a dock where you can take a peaceful rest before hitting the trail again. Also, if you ride around town a bit before heading back to Manawa, you are able to clock a nice 30 miles under your belt.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail

Nice trail

April, 2017 by irmaiden

I recently tried out this trail and had a fun time.I started off of Mequon rd.and went to the I-43 bridge.That was 11.5 miles.The trail was interesting.I liked going through some of the small towns,then getting back on the trail.A few hills,and a few bridges and some interesting scenery.The only thing that I really disliked were the small bridges near Mequon.There were a few of them and they all had terrible transitions from the trail.You have to slow down or you will get a big bump.That was annoying,and I can't believe how bad they made that.It was a chilly 51 degree day on my ride,I will have to come back on a warmer day and make it to Port Washington.

Mascoutin Valley State Trail

Parking

April, 2017 by mylovelyparasite

I live in Berlin and run this trail several time a week as part of my training. But even without training it makes for a very comfortable, easy run. Even after it rains the surface of the trail dries very quickly and it is always well maintained. As for parking, although the trail head is on County highway F, there is a 1/4 mile stretch before this that starts beside the Dollar General store on Highway 49 in Berlin that offers a parking area that is not on the side of the road. Also, from the trail head on F, there is a 2.48 mile clip that comes out beside the landfill on Willard road that also offers a large parking area. Enjoy the outdoors everyone. Peace.
