Madison Bike & Recreation Trail Description

The setting for the Madison Bike & Recreation Trail transitions from urban industrial to rural farmland as it heads east towards Johnson Point on the shores of Lake Madison. The paved path begins on Egan Avenue in the south of the city, but soon begins to parallel State Route 34, which it will stick close to for most of its route. As you head east, buildings become sparser and are replaced by panoramic fields of corn, soybeans and grain crops. 

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at either end of the trail. At the western end you can park at the baseball fields on Egan Avenue. At the eastern end, you can park at the end of Johnson Point Road on Lake Madison. 

Madison Bike & Recreation Trail Reviews

Lake Madison

This is a very pleasant trail, that affords one some fairly spectacular views of Lake Madison.

Two points of which to be aware: The situation where one must cross South Dakota Highwy 34, in orer to proceed from the pulic parking at 8th & Egan, leaves a lot to be desired. I might be inlined to recommend parking on Washington Avenue South, which is to say, on the southen side of highway 34. You lose almost none of the trail this way, and you avoid the stress of crossing the highway.

Additionally, the map is incomplete ie. the leg of the trail that follows alongside highway 19, actually turns east, and goes at least a mile or more farther than what is indicated here.
