I ran for exercise along this trail in Madison and found it quite scenic and fun. The trail wound through open meadows, ponds, and mature hardwood trees. Watch out for squirrels crossing the trail, they are practically tame.

Thousands of miles throughout WI to explore. Pick up the trail just about anywhere in WI and enjoy! I'm thrilled that I'm minutes from many SW WI routes. My boys love running on these trails and my dog, friends and I love exploring them. Great place for a solo hike or walk with friends & family. Beautiful Wisconsin!

We volunteer for the trail, so may be a bit biased, but we always enjoy our experiences on the trail. The portions where trail is complete are great hiking experiences -- nice trails (whether in the woods, in the prairie or in a bit more urban area that the trail sometimes goes through.

What a great fall walk on the trail today! The colors of the trees are in full glory. I walked from Epic area to downtown Verona. Downtown there are nice clean bathrooms and a drinking fountain.

so close to the city and yet, a wide expanse of nature and trails. Yeah

the ice age trail leads into a beautiful valley, or there are 2 loop trails.
