“Jane Adams trail Freeport il to WI”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Stayed at Baymont hotel next to trail in Freeport.
Very enjoyable shaded trail to Wisconsin border.
Went off trail at Orangeville to eat at Tammy Joe's
restaurant- great salad bar and food.
Went off trail near Cedarville to visit Jane Adams
gravesite, museum and see her home.
A pleasant days ride of about 36 miles to and
from the hotel

“A great place to run or walk or ride a bike.”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

This trail has been developed over a long time and it is still not completed. When it's finished you'll be able to go from Freeport, IL. to Madison, WI. It's a wonderful trail from Freeport to Monroe, WI. traveling through the rolling fields and timbers.

“A Grand Trail”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

This trail starts alone Rt. 20. I have jogged the entire trail and bicycled it. A perfect place for training. It does not have water stops so bring your own. You can get off, if you know where your at in a couple small towns before Orangeville.
It is best for riding a bicycle. In Monticello (in Wis. a pass is required) Wi. you can turn off onto the Sugar River Trail. Or if you keep on the Jane Adams Trail/Badger Trail you can go on into Madison Wi. and circle the lakes and eat up by the Capital. Just before you get to Madison Wi. you can turn off onto the Military Ridge Trail and head west to Dodgeville Wi.. You can virtually disappear for a few days using the Jane Adams Trail and see a host of sites in two states.

“Bike, Running, Walking, B-E-A-Utiful”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

Great trail. It is an old railroad bed right along the Pecatonica River. Right off of HWY 20. You could spend all day if you wanted to.
