I think it's great the county is asking for public imput. I also think it's great that the area is supporting a neat trail system. Nice localism post, Don.

Don:  Your great state and Wisconsin have so many of these types of trails.  I have friends that are ardent bicyclists and they head north almost every weekend to enjoy them.  I think your trails are a great idea.  It's fantastic that municipalities try to gain commentary from those in the area ...

I'm such a fan of these trail systems. Hope a lot of locals give their input in to which route they prefer. Regardless, it will sure be a wonderful asset to the community.
Have a great Friday, Don.

Hi Don -- as Ron commented -- this is a great opportunity for those who utilize the local trail systems to voice their opinions - let's hope they do so.

There are so many people who like to bike, hike and rollerblade that this makes great sense to have the connections!

This used to be a nice trail to ride on until the city of zimmerman destroyed the historical rail road bed. They constructed buildings on it, they planted trees on it, there are steel cattle gates and barbed wire fences across it. Just south of the city some idiot dug a trench across the rail road bed and put a large mound of dirt in front of it. What a disgrace.
