Type: Mountain Bike

Length: 9 miles

Surface: Crushed Limestone

Easy ride on crushed limestone. Be careful because tree limbs can be covering the trail somtimes. You can also find people and there dogs walking the trail so be mindful coming around bends.



Grade - Gentle Grades



Really fun ride covered by trees. The trail can be muddy at times be ready for that. Nice cruise alongside the Winnebago River. When you make it to the nature center you can find all kinds of exhibits from animals to bugs. The trail does continue north of the center that isn't paved with crushed limestone (dirt trail) and it tougher. Wouldn't recommend a cruisers on this part of trail so mountain bikes are good at this point.

Location - Where is this Trail?

North side of 12th street north side of town. Between a dog park and car wash. 

To get to nature center take north federal out of town. Once you go under a bridge you will see exit on left side of road
