We were a bit disappointed in this trail. We started at the south end, which meant a 2-mile climb out of the river valley. This part was scenic, but grueling. After that, it was flat and rather dull, running through farmland. After the first 2 miles the asphalt gives way to crushed rock (like most Wisconsin trails). It was not well-maintained, at least when we were there. Crushed rock is okay, but not when it is full of ruts from tractor wheels. There were also some puddles and lots of small branches down from a recent storm.
On the plus side, the small towns come along every 5 miles or so, offering a wide selection of taverns serving burgers and beer every day of the week (yay, Wisconsin!). We especially liked the “Glass Bar” in Centuria.
