Yes it was a little windy this weekend but the trial was great! The wooded area sheltered me from the wind! Peaceful and beautiful on of my favorite places. So glad I live in the Town of Verona!

The trail isn't always in the best shape depending on weather and other conditions. It's gravel. As the trail meanders around, sometimes it's very close to the highway and other times, it's pleasantly rural. It's gravel, so, if it's rained recently..., expect a lot of...More

Great, safe place to run or bike. I mostly run east or west, but sometimes I bike to Mt. Horeb. Beware no water on the trail so go prepared to take your own.

Wonderful bike trail. Not paved but very hard surface. Each biking with nice shaded areas. Not much standing water even after a rainy month.

This is a fairly adequately maintained trail that we rode from the connecting trail by Governor Dodge State Park then east. This is kind of a rustic trail. There are a few areas where the hills may be challenging to young or inexperienced riders.

Take MRT all the time. I can start at Riely Tavern or a couple of spots in Verona and have lunch with the family in Mt Horeb, or ride from madison and make it to blue mounds or dodgeville without having to worry about road...More

I like to bike the trail. Plenty of wildlife, trees, and flowers. There are occasional passes through and over roads, and then you're right back into wilderness. I use the path mostly around Verona and Epic. Very clean and people are friendly. Don't forget to...More
