Bearskin State Trail

Bear Skin State Trail

November, 2017 by lucas6

I rode the Bear Skin Trail Oct. 6, 2017, starting at County K. I saw no other riders during my evening ride. The lakes and river scenery was spectacular. Bring a camera. I expected to see deer and was not disappointed. Most of the deer quickly disappeared into the forest, but one doe stood 20 feet from the trail and never moved as I passed. Her image will be in my mind forever. Riding the Bear Skin Trail in early morning or early evening should produce many wildlife sightings. The trail accommodates all bicycles with it's hard-packed surface.

Badger State Trail

bager state trail

November, 2017 by stuff6

Rode south out of fitchburg. About 5-6 miles south this turns into a limestone path. I rode it in november so maybe its better in the summer but its no skinny tire road bike route. Was nice until then.

Capital City State Trail

capitol city trail

November, 2017 by stuff6

Trail is ok. They really need to fill some cracks. Its pretty rough. Of course it could be that they do this in the spring. I rode it in November. I suspect its a really good trail in the warmer months. It gives you great access to the downtown area pubs and restaurants.

Glacial Drumlin State Trail

Nov. 5-6 overnight ride

November, 2017 by stonegreg3

From Waukesha to London and back to Lake Mills DNR camp. Awesome bacon burger trail side in Mills! Forget the name of the bowling alley bar joint. More dog walkers then bikers this trip, if you don't pick it up kick it off to the side of the trail! worse then those darn potholes that have been mostly filled in. Would rather look for deer then dog #*!+! One lady complained about bathrooms being closed at the Mills trail head with no port-a-potty. Blah Blah Blah! Great ride, love to see the folks walking the pups out there.fff

Beerline Trail

It's probably more of a walking trail

November, 2017 by martinaxe

I just did the segment from Capital Drive down to Burleigh, and given its length and street crossings, the trail is probably better suited for walking. The trail is smooth and in great condition, but the ride is over before it starts, if you know what I mean. I rode it in the dark, and it can be a bit tricky to find the trail on the other side of some of the crossings, but I'm sure this is not likely an issue in the daylight.

Wiouwash State Trail

easy with my new cane

October, 2017 by barefootdaze

handicap, disabled, wheelchair, walker. parking. trash receptacles.
really nice flat, dry section of trail from hortonville southward.

Tomorrow River State Trail

Great Fall Ride

October, 2017 by buehler868

The Tomorrow River turned out to be a nice pick for my 2-day fall ride on a typical Wisconsin state rail-to-trail. I broke up my trip at the Scandinavia trail head; going east the first day to Manawa and back was 28 miles, going west the next day to Plover and back was 40 miles. The nearby town of Waupaca was a great overnight base-the local Irish pub was perfect.
The tail has easy grades up and down as the trail travels thru old railroad cuts and fills. You get to see forested areas, pasture land and crop land. There are still a lot of old wooden barns along the way some still in use while others are no longer serving the agriculture economy. The gravel-surfaced trail is in good shape. Signage for the road detour at Amherst Junction is not perfect but the route can be easily determined. One should stop at the Twin Towers Drive trail head in Plover and not travel the uninteresting 1.5 mile stretch to the trails end at Hoover Ave South unless one is going on to follow the long connecter to the Green Circle Trail in Stevens Point. One negative is the trail heads do not have water or any toilets

Omaha Trail

Lovely day, lovely trail

October, 2017 by charlieknox

We biked from Elroy to the restrooms on the north side of the tunnel yesterday afternoon. The tunnel, with a very smooth, wide surface, is about 7 miles from The Common in Elroy . The first mile is on town roads, then on to the trail. Lots of leaves and walnuts on the trail at this point in the year. The trail itself is one of the better trails we have biked on. Bridges are well maintained. The scenery was beautiful on the trail. Can't wait to start in Camp Douglas, and head south.

Give it a try, I think you'll enjoy it !

Pine River Trail

Not suitable for road bikes, recumbents, etc.

October, 2017 by 4csmiley

Even though this is supposed to be a groomed trail, it is in very poor overall condition. There are several very deep holes and washouts along with ruts left by someone driving farm implements down the trail. Many of these ruts are full of water and mud. There are also a few sandy areas that are deep enough to cause problems . One of the many bridges has approaches that must have washed out and are being reworked. You will have to carry your bike across this. Scenery is farmland mostly and you will likely get up close and personal with a cow occasionally. There is an outhouse and a very friendly dog with a limp at Twin Bluff Drive. I think he belongs to the Farm implement place. This could be a really nice trail if it was not in such poor condition.

Pecatonica State Trail

Not bad

October, 2017 by polarismagic

trails were not bad. it is limestone or gravel. Encountered atvs and they gave plenty of space or stopped and waved.

Sugar River State Trail

Frequent rider

October, 2017 by bruce_d

The trail needs more mileage markers. Only miles 1,2,3,5,8,and 10 are posted. It would be helpful to know where on the trail you are at and how far it is to each end. Mostly flat with gopher holes present in many places. Beware of the wild Parsnip growing alongside the trail.

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Weston Trailhead - 10.4.2017

October, 2017 by kathleen.esqueda

Walked 2 miles in from the Weston trailhead. Trail in excellent shape. This section of the trail runs parallel to a very busy, noisy road on one side and the backyards of homes on the other. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful walk in the woods this is not it. If you don’t mind the noise and walking closely past houses and businesses it might work for you. Giving at least two stars for the great trail condition; however, this section of the trail was not what I personally had hoped it would be.
