A well maintained, wide, flat, smooth trail for biking or walking. The description above is inaccurate, however. The trail is 52 miles long, flat and EASY (it's a former rail corridor, with never more than 3% grade.).

pleasant hike, easy enough for a beginner like myself, great views of the lake, additional trails and paths through the park

Nice, easy little loop. Lots of birds, playground for kids.

Very nice trail saw a few ergots and ducks It is off Church street and 173 nice parking will go again saw several hikers and 7 other riders

ok, better than nothing but not a good workout for Road Bikes.

Trail is mainly grass, which helped for a spring hike. Half wide open prairie, half lightly wooded space, along with the lake provides for a nice variety on the hike.

This is a great biking trail in the summer. Completely flat and mostly straight but the wildlife near the marshes make it a very pleasant hike. Saw many deer, sand hill crane, blue heron, Canadian geese, mallard ducks, and all within the first 2 miles of the trail. Great walking trail for families. It also crosses many roads, all about a mile apart. Makes it fun to pace, or get picked up if you don’t feel like back tracking.

Loved this trail! Beautiful scenic ride through heavily canopied trees and and also open areas overlooking farmland and beautiful countryside. It is a 12 mile trail one way, so it may be a bit much for beginners. If you’re looking to enjoy a day out on your bike this trail checks all the boxes!

We hiked this one today (Mar 2) and enjoyed a nice day out in the sunshine. The specific route shown here is not good for winter hiking because it turns onto a cross country ski only trail that is groomed for skiing only and doesn't allow hiking. But there are plenty of other routes in this park to hike. It's not an ideal winter trail though because it's mostly used for snowmobiles and all terrain vehicles, so you're essentially walking on packed machine tracks. The other thing to watch if you've never been here before is to not let the directions take you to the trail head, because it directs you to where the trail crosses Elmira Ave and not the actual parking lot off of Wyoming Ave. This seems like a really nice area to hike so I look forward to coming back this summer.

scenic area, lots of good restaurants and shops if you want to stop in downtown Racine

The Bugline trek started in May 2017 and is still continuing throughout the seasons. It was my first railroad trail I've hiked on. I will always remember my first! Overall, the condition is excellent, the views are awesome (guy stuff if you like quarries) and piece & quiet are so inner, self- healing.

During the winter hike, the temp was rather cold, but right across from the Cop Shop / Fire Station in Lannon is Mibb's & Viv's. Friday fish fries are very good, reasonably priced and so are the Margaritas. YUM.

Started this trek in July 2017 and finally finished on Dec 23, 2017. Actually walked more than double the estimated miles because I was leap-frogging the parked car. Also, the drive became further as I progressed north. Weather played a big concern. The last day was brutal. At least 20-25 mph with nw winds and temps in the low to mid teens if that much.

Good thing I was wearing my USAF Arctic parka and long underwear, scarf and ski mittens.

Overall, the trek was sort of worth it. There were beautiful sections down south but as I walked parallel to 145 into Kewaskum, the stink of diesel, gas and CO plus noise was terrible.

This loop is an easy walk. It is very sunny in spots. I recommend bringing water in summer, even though the lop can be walked in under an hour and a half or two hours for slow-ish walkers. At points there is quite a bit of traffic noise.

This is a short trail, but a nice option in the middle of the city. It’s peaceful and quiet. Love that my dog can come with. Kids love the park it’s attached to.

Easy hike, very touristy, Nice walking on the Lake Michigan and on the small stream down through the park. One of our favorite parks in Milwaukee.

Be sure to bring the bug repellent, as this is one buggy park!

If you're looking for a place to just walk between classes or on a lunch break. This'll do the trick. Otherwise its not good for much else. Loud from the city and and short loops.

We just finished the Wingra Woods portion of the trail with the kids. Pretty easy walking, great scenery, and we even saw some turkeys. I could see the mosquitoes being bad in the summer, but it’s perfect in the fall.

If you're not following the river you're on the wrong trail! This is a beautiful hike past a golf course, along a river, and through the woods. Worth it to find the correct trail head.

This place is awesome!!! There are tons of trails through the trees with a lot of varied elevations, some steep hills and thin trails. I got through about 4 miles of trails in the woods. I skipped one sketchy looking bridge this time so I didn't go all the way around. Cell service for Verizon is weak @ 3G mostly so bring an extra charger if using gps. Definitely recommend having a gps app or a detailed map saved. Probably easy to get turned around in there. If my battery wasn't almost dead I would have stayed in there another 4 miles. Hiking shoes are a must. It's muddy and going down the steep dirt trails is slippery. I will be back soon, with snacks and extra chargers. Amazing and worth the hour drive from IL.

I don't think the highlighted trail actually exists. this is a park, and there are only paved paths. if you want to walk past some picnic benches and a baseball diamond, this is the place for you. maybe I'm blind and don't see the actual trail, who knows...

Short easy loop hike, it's shaded all the way, very well maintained with signs and no bugs at all.

Easy and flat. Peaceful in many parts but there is City noise and views. Are use it each time I come to town which is twice a year. One of the few places with asphalt instead of concrete.

This was my first attempt at hiking and I chose this trail cause it was under the easy category. The trail is easy in the sense that there isn’t a lot of hills, the terrain is mostly flat. However if you are a beginner I would choose a much shorter trail. This trail is 19 miles long. In 2 hours we had hiked 5 miles and I turned around and went back to the car. Ultimately we ended up doing 10.5 miles in just under 4 hours. Needless to say we were pooped and quite sore when we returned to our vehicle. The scenery is peaceful and nice to look at. There are a lot of bikers so be prepared to move over a lot.

It's not truly a hike as it's a paved path and there isn't really any alteration in the altitude. I only walked down a few miles but in those miles I wasn't very impressed. I parked in an education center and just started walking along the road, not really knowing if I was on the trail or not. It wasn't far and I found where the trail head was marked. It was nice at first; there is a little bridge to cross over and then there is a set of railroad tracks and then the trail veers to the left but if you look straight ahead there are tiny little...boxes? Made out of pvc pipes and plastic...I would have loved to go poke around but I was a little chicken since I'm not familiar with this area and I was alone lol. I think there was a sign back between the five structures but it wasn't facing the correct way. I continued on my journey and came to an underpass that was tagged with all kinds of nonsense. I crossed over two pretty large streets (although there weren't many cars passing when I was there). There is a spot where it says bikers and inline skaters should stop and pay $5 but I didn't see anybody actually stop to make the payment. The trail runs behind some apartments and some houses. I guess I might be a little disappointed because I was hoping I was further out from the city (I probably should have looked at a map lol) and that it would be more of a rural trail. I did get passed by probably 10 bikers and 5 other walkers/runners.

Nice little walk and nice view of the lake.

This was a fun trail to explore, but it was hard to navigate while walking my dog. I constantly had to stop and double check if I was on the right path with my GPS. A couple of times we got off-course, but overall I enjoyed the sights and so did my pup.
