I was out yesterday. It’s about 3 miles from just north of Ripon (Co. E & Locust) to Vines & Rushes. The fair amount of traffic on E which parallels the trail along this stretch was a bit distracting but it was good to get out and move. Only saw 4 other people.

The challenge for this trail is more about time than anything else. It's an easy, level walk - a well-maintained surface. I'm tempted to mark it as wheelchair accessible. But it isn't paved. Took my Yorkie mix puppy Nellie Bly one mile out and back. That's all I wanted to push her little legs at 6 months. But she's fit and ready and, as long as I keep her out of the burdock on the trailside, the trail begs us to go farther - and this little dog and I will comply!
