This is a well marked but essentially road running route through town. Almost no trail. Just city streets.

This is my go to trail when it’s hot. Almost entirely shaded and flat. Has a secluded beauty to it.

Janesville main bike path but rarely crowded. Nice views along greenbelt and forested areas. Mostly flat.

Went in October, super colorful in the fall. Was hard to find parking for trail. You have to park at the Holy Hill Church. Most of the trail has trail markers, not all parts of the trail though.

Love this trail! Challenging to do entire 15+ miles and also great trail for day hikes out and back from either Luna Whitedeer trailhead or Franklin nature trail.

Awesome hike, did it this past weekend in about 25 hours. The to climbs are not to be underrated, but are doable. There are lots of scenic bluffs which are awesome to take a look at. We had a great time hiking this and would definitely recommend it.

Beautiful dirt trail. Cool part passes through a corn field.

Excellent hike. Went with my chesapeake bay retrieve. beautiful day for a hike.

Some nice big kettles on the US 12 side of the hike. will be great in those as the leaves turn. long views of the land below. trail generally takes the high line. nice on either end with elevation and more challenging trail. flat and wide in the middle.

One of our favorite ice age trail segments. Bugs are no problem now, Sept. 18, and not much rain recently.

Most beautiful trail! Two sections of the trail underwater.

Parked on Hwy 167 and took the yellow trail on the south side of the road. This is an easy trail. There is a steep climb to an optional lookout. We couldn't see anything due the tree coverage. It may be much more scenic when the leaves drop in the fall. The trail was narrow and heavily wooded and there were numerous other hikers on the trails. You could hear cars throughout a good portion of the trail and at 12:00 pm, the Basilica rang bells, which was neat. It wasn't my favorite trail of the summer but if you are looking for a nice easy walk, this is a great place for that.
