Great running trail, well groomed and mostly flat. Great walking trail, interesting wildlife and one particularly spectacular view about 1.5 miles from trailhead. Great hiking trail if take advantage of the many more challenging sidetrails. Great casual biking trail for mountain bikes and hybrids.

Peavine has a great walking path that goes forever; and if you'd like to really "hike" you can choose to go on another path and get your workout. The scenery is peaceful and some of the area's best; whether long or short time allowing, you can't go wrong on the Peavine.

There are trails that are on the old railbed, so they are flat, level, and well-maintained. You could easily go four or five miles out and the same back in tennis shoes, if that is all you had. There are more difficult trails as well, and we will visit them in the future. The trailhead is ten minutes from downtown... More

The rail trail here is one of the nicest, best maintained I've been on. Easy cruise past Watson Lake with some history about the area and railroad sprinkled throughout.

The first part of the trail is relatively dull, with just a recycling plant and police training area, but once you get to the lake and boulders, it's very beautiful. The boulders are great for climbing on to get a great view. The path is well marked, well maintained, and relatively flat and wide.

Used to be a railroad track. Converted to a flat hiking/bicicling trail, with great views of the lake. Great for walking your dog. Lots of flat rocks and some benches for resting.

this trail is one of the more pleasant semi-urban trails you may ever find. so why am i telling you about it? because 99% of people will not get off their dead ones to walk five miles to see some fabulous real estate. what makes this so special is that the trail loops one of the rare riparian areas of...

What a great way to spend a morning riding among the Dells and a chance to see turtles sunning themselves. It is an easy ride with plenty of opportunities to take the difficult singletrack along the rocks on the lake if that is your style. Wither way, it has something for everyone whether you ride or walk.

Amazing place to hike around, see the sites and things you may not even realize are there. Gotta do this at least once or twice.
