This is all ripped up now, they are replacing the power lines. Still rideable but not relaxing

Hank Aaron State Trail

Under Construction/More

April, 2019 by dancesinggirl6

The areas around the trail especially in the three bridges park are quite bare currently.

I really wish that there were permanent "available/not locked" bathrooms along the trail itself besides at the urban ecology center and the seasonal port-o-potties during baseball season...Would be nice also if there was a light fixture on the bridge itself that is the exit of the three bridges park.

Otherwise this long trail that goes in different directions is pretty awesome. I've seen skunks and even frogs a few times last summer...

Wolf River State Trail

Update on section B of the Wolf River state Trail

February, 2019 by pm2consulting

The trail is beautiful but under utilized. The Langlade Area Mountain Bike Association (LAMBA) has recently signed a recreational agreement with the Langlade County Forestry and Recreation Department to host an event on the trail called The Oxbow Odyssey and also to assume maintenance of the trail. It is the organizations plan to increase maintenance of the trail and promote it's use for biking. We are very excited for this opportunity to increase silent sports opportunities in Eastern langlade County. For information about LAMBA visit our website at www.lambatrails.com.

Peace Trail

Reply to previous review.

January, 2019 by dpaynter0629

Since 2017 more trail has been paved within the park. Signage and sharrows have been added. The trail north out of the park is crushed limestone as is the next six miles of trail heading towards Janesville. The Rock Trail Coalition is fundraising to pave the north trail out of Big Hill Park. Stay tuned. I'll give it 3 stars for now heading for 5 stars in the future.

East River Trail

frozen trail

January, 2019 by jfruhman_tl

Very nice trail that connects several parks with many different athletic facilities. Follows along the river closely. Only downside is parts of the trail may be flooded when the river is high.

Lower Yahara River Trail

Lake trail

January, 2019 by jfruhman_tl

The boardwalk along the lake extends for about a mile. After that is park space that has side trails for hikers, picnic spots,horseshoe pits and more.
For bikers this connects with bike paths that lead into Madison for extra mileage as the trail is fairly short for a bike ride.

Upper Yahara River Trail

suburban trail

January, 2019 by jfruhman_tl

Nice trail along the river with grades and curves to keep it interesting. Popular with dog walkers. Only downside is the ever present noise from the expressway.

Green Circle Trail

Not up to my expectation

December, 2018 by jfruhman_tl

I am a hiker and decided to do the circle trail within the larger loop. Took about 1 1/2 hours. While some parts of the trail were very picturesque too many parts were not especially on the east side of the river by the factories and houses. There are so many better trails in Wisconsin I will not waste my time again

River Bend Trail (WI)

Winter walk

December, 2018 by jfruhman_tl

Great view of the river during winter when the foliage is gone
