Also known as the Southwest Commuter Path, this nicely paved and heavily traveled trail clearly serves more than just recreational purposes. It follows right along the downtown corridor and just south of the University of Wisconsin. It is also a bit of a cutoff trail for bicyclists trying to reach the Military Ridge State Trail from the Capital City Trail; the Southwest Path takes 6.2 miles off the Capital City Trail’s connection from Lake Monona to the access trail to the Military Ridge Trail.
