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.

Old Abe State Trail

Jim Falls to Cornell to Brunet Island State Park and back

June, 2024 by djmmsherman

We listened to previous reviews and picked "the cream of the crop" for our ride -- heading north out of Jim Falls to Cornell. Beautiful ride along the river and plenty of tree canopy. Trail in great shape. At Cornell, we decided to bike into Brunet State Park for a nice ride around the small island. We got back to Jim Falls and kept going, for a daily ride of about 33 miles. Highly recommend a tour of the Leinenkugel Brewery in Chippewa Falls, overnight lodging at the amazing Otter Creek Inn in Altoona, and dinner at Mona Lisa in Eau Claire -- the pizza and pasta were outstanding, and a great dinner after a great ride!

Chippewa River State Trail

Segment from Durand trailhead to Red Cedar Trail

June, 2024 by djmmsherman

We rode this trail in late May 2024 and listened to the reviews, so I can only comment on the western part of this trail, from the Durand trailhead, riding about 6.5 miles to the intersection with the Red Cedar Trail and then we headed north on that trail. Other reviews say past the intersection, the trail needs work, so we followed that advice. The trail out of Durand is great -- paved and beautiful biking with tree canopy and the point where the trail intersects with the Red Cedar is clearly marked. The portion we did was great.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail (Route of the Badger)

Port Washington

June, 2024 by patrick.smith47203

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

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.

400 State Trail

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!

Red Cedar State Trail

Beautiful trail

Perfect for hybrid bikes! Runs along the Red Cedar River for most of the trail and enjoyable to see the kayaks and canoes. Very lightly used.

White River State Trail (Route of the Badger)

Did the trail yesterday with my wife. Nice traffic bond trail with lots of shade and lots of dog poo left by unscrupulous pet owners . Why wreck this trail because you're too lazy to pick up after yourself . The world is not your toilet.

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.

Sugar River State Trail

From Albany To Decatur

May, 2024 by goodsettwein
