*great* trail network but it is a little boring for hiking.

Nice trail in Downtown LaCrosse within the park.

It’s not a trail, but connects to the marsh lands trail behind the International Gardens. The loop around Riverside Park is beautiful, offering views of the river and the two blue bridges. Also, it’s right next to downtown La Crosse, so you have access to local favorites such as the Pearl ice cream shop!

This is one of my favorite trails to hike and run on. The trail is very well maintained in summer and in winter, but in the summer months the wildflowers are absolutely beautiful. The old quarry really makes the landscape and if you stand at the top, you can look out over both the forested valley and the city.

As far as hiking, the trail is wide, gravel, and mostly flat, but running up the big hill on the quarryside can be a challenge.

Great trails and park with lots of single and double track. Many connections to go as far as you'd like without having to double up. Good views, great park!
