“A multi-use trail that serves as a route up and down from the top of the bluffs in La Crosse.”— joseph lidral
Family Friendly A nice, well-groomed wide trail, designed to have a consistent 5% grade, well maintained and well marked. Might be difficult for younger children.
Once you reach the top of the trail you can turn right on Rim of the City Rd and then right on County Hwy FA which you can follow for about 5 minutes to the Human Powered Trails trailhead( HPT locals loop) to make it a longer ride. Fun, flowy trail on the way down, easy to pick up a lot of speed. Make sure to stop at one of the overlooks for a break and take in some of the beautiful views this route offers.
The trail is currently uphill and downhill for bikes, but once the new TNT/downhill trail is built the trail will be uphill only for bikes. It is common to run into hikers or runners, just remember to yield to them and slow it down as you pass.
Overall, a beautiful trail with some great views, and a blast to ride.
