Glacial Drumlin Trail

The Glacial Drumlin Trail is a 52-mile trail that connects Cottage Grove, just east of Madison, with Waukesha, west of Milwaukee. The western 39 miles of the trail are wide, crushed limestone - the eastern 13 miles are paved and suitable for road bikes or inline skating.

Like many Wisconsin rail trails, you will need to purchase a state trail day use or annual pass if you plan to bike, cross country ski, or inline skate. Hiking the trail does not require a trail pass.

Tony Knowles Coastal Trail

The Tony Knowles Coastal Trail is an 11-mile long paved, multi-use trail along the coast of Anchorage, Alaska. The smooth asphalt is good for bicycling, inline skating, jogging, walking, or cross-country skiing in the winter. This is one of the most heavily used trails in the Anchorage area, so you probably won't be alone.

The trail starts in Kincaid Park and ends in downtown Anchorage off of W. 2nd Street.

Homestead Trail

The Homestead Trail in McKinney Falls State Park is the best trail in the park for hiking and mountain biking - at three miles long, it is not too long, but it is a lot of fun.

3.00miles

Rock Shelter Trail

The Rock Shelter Trail in McKinney Falls State Park is a nice short trail that leads along the top of the banks of Onion Creek to a rock overhang that Native Americans used for shelter. It's open for hiking only, but you can use it to connect the Homestead Trail with the Onion Creek Hike and Bike Trail. If you're on a bike, use the road instead, it parallels this trail.

There are also a few bouldering spots along this trail, so look down from the trail to the creek - you may see some rock climbers,

Onion Creek Hike and Bike Trail

The Onion Creek Hike and Bike Trail is in McKinney Falls State Park in Southeast Austin. A paved 3-mile loop, this trail has seen better days. From the description, you might think it was a good east-side alternative to the Veloway in Southwest Austin, but the Onion Creek Trail needs a fresh coat of asphalt and is not restricted to inline skating or biking. Definitely do not bring a nice road bike here, as there are lots of cracks in the paving. Inline skaters will find this to be a tough go as well.
