Run / Walk / Stroll / Bike here and you will not be disappointed! With a lovely view of the lake and an extended path (away from traffic) this is one of my madison favorites.

I've walked many shared bike/walking/jogging paths and usually have good luck with bicyclists who will give right of way to pedestrians. But on an early Sunday morning walk I was nearly struck two different times by impatient bicyclists who wanted to get around other riders or someone fishing off a bridge. Maybe I was just unlucky, but please beware if you are walking on this path. It is a beautiful path, however, with splendid views of the lake and the city.

Great view. Nice to hang out and be by the water! Good picnic views and family time! Had a blast here.

Long path where you can run/walk/bike past Monona terrace, the lake, and even can end up by Olin park for more exploration. If you end up by olin park and head back into madison, you can see the entire capitol and skyline in front of the lake, this is my favorite view of madison at night! There are a few benches and trees to take a break by and look at the beautiful lake. Would definitely recommend for a calm stroll past the lake.

This shoreline trail is very popular for locals bikers but may not be so for out of town travelers. The trail has lanes designated for walkers and bikers. This trail is built to go around the calmer and smaller Lake Manona. Exercisers can walk, jog, or bike around and stop to view the bar from the Terrace. At Law Park parking, the trail goes up on the street in front of Machinery row. To get to the trail from the Capitol building, visitors must walk toward the Manona Terrace and get down on the trail by elevator or stairs. Come and enjoy the Lake.
