I live in the country and recently several dogs have become bothersome on my country running roads so I have taken to running on the trail. NO DOGS, only courteous bikers. It is really nice to escape to nature on the trail. I never tire...More

I rode this some 35 years ago and drove through the area last summer. I would LOVE to ride it, and the greater area, again.

The path was flat, easy and beautiful. Our two highlights were our two stops: The Trempealeau Hotel (on a Sunday afternoon) had a band in the outdoor pavilion - what a setting, with the Mississippi in the background, river barges and an occasional freight train...More

Ran a marathon on part of those trails. Very well kept, beautiful, loved the bridges. Would definitely go for walk, ride your bike or run there. Lots of benches to sit, relax, and take in the scenery.

Very well kept trail. Mostly flat with very little incline. Trail travels through prarie lands and a few small towns. Beautiful scenery and lots of rest stops.

I enjoyed the way the paths meander around different scenery and over a creek.This path has plenty of open spaces and benches in quiet areas.It has been quite a pleasure to enjoy and one I will do again.

Beautiful trail, make sure to bring a flashlight for the railroad tunnel that is 3/4 mile long. You will have to walk your bike. You will bike on pea gravel on groomed trails, room for 2 bikers to bike side by side.
