I rode on the trail a couple days, and thoroughly enjoyed it. You will want to use some mosquito repellent or be well bitten!! The trail is mostly just packed dirt. I used a mountain bike with fairly wide tires - not sure how a...More

If you are looking to just get out and ride this is the trial for you. There is very little elevation gain and the trail just goes on and on and on. Not much to see along the way but you get a good workout...More

We like riding this trail. The parking lot makes for easy loading and unloading and there is a bathroom for a visit before you leave or on your return. We like going to West Salem and then returning. It does need a little TLC, but...More

I've been a regular user of this trail for years, and sadly, each year the trail needs more and more maintenance. Apparently, Wisconsin is neglecting its wonderful rail trails, as I've experienced the same issues on the adjoining Great River State Trail. There are numerous...More

Just rode the trail from County B to West Salem in the early morning. The birds and wildlife along the trail were out and about. Kids would love the deer, geese, cranes, rabbits and yes, even a mink along the trail to see. The trails...More

This was our 4th trail on our bike trip between Mankato to Wisconsin Dells. even though my priority is asphalt surface for biking, i still loved this trail. It seems so authentic. The trees are in shape and regularly. It was beautiful ride.

I LOVE riding this trail when I visit Lacrosse. My only complaint is, as a road biker, I wish it was paved but it's usually hardpacked enough for me to get on it. I'll often ride it from town to Trempealeau where I meet up...More

We walked about 3 miles and back on this trail which follows the La Crosse River. It seems to be a Rail to Trail trail - so straight, long and flat. Would be great for biking. Good trail for hikers and bikers. Goes all the...More

Great for taking walks with the family. Nothing fancy just nature walking. Recommend Hixton Forest, Granddad Bluff and the River area to see more of La Crosse.
