The Monona shoreline is one of my favorite places to run! It's fairly flat and has beautiful scenery! Well maintained trail.

Madison is a pleasant and peaceful city... Lake front offers beautiful view of the Capitol building... Best place for evening walk and sunset view... Here you get in equilibrium with nature.. Suggested for nature lovers.

This shoreline trail is very popular for locals bikers but may not be so for out of town travelers. The trail has lanes designated for walkers and bikers. This trail is built to go around the calmer and smaller Lake Manona. Exercisers can walk, jog,...More

It is nice and relaxing to take a walk or run near Monona Lake. You can rent a bike and spend the day biking around the lake too.
