This is a beautiful and peaceful trail -- with packed dirt/gravel -- that is just perfect for long runs or bike rides. Highly recommend it.

I walked this trail in November but returned to it in February. The trail is used by bikers, walkers, runners, old and young. I spooked a deer while waking. Ample wildlife. Close to Epic and the nearby hotels. Worth every minute outside. Clean.

I know where it starts, and I know where it ends, but I confess to have only been on it near this attraction of Blue Mounds State Park. You can ride or walk or run (if you are really into self-abuse) the entire 40-mile length...More

Should be no problem. Just make sure you have a trail permit. You can get on at various areas on the trail or Millers in Verona I know has them.
