I have ridden this trail in sections probably 4 times total. The surface is well taken care of, and there are plenty of towns spread out along the way. It is pretty flat except the section from Wales to Waukesha which is a pretty good...More

The Glacial Drumlin Trail is marvelous. It was created in about 1986/1987 from an old defunct train track. There are basically two halves to the GDT: the eastern half which is the Waukesha to Jefferson area half, and then the western half which is the...More
