Greenbush Trails Professional Review and Guide

"The Greenbush mountain-biking trails are some of the best in the state. The four loops in this densely wooded section of the Kettle Moraine State Forest are all challenging in their own way. The entire area is heavily glaciated with large open kettles scattered throughout the wilderness. The location is rather desolate and offers a nice escape from some of southeastern Wisconsin’s more crowded trails. As with all of the Kettle Moraine Trails, the loops are very well marked and even on the first time through riders can easily find their way through each divergence of the trail.

Expect to be stunned by the abundance of wildlife. From hardwood forests to marshes to pine stands the surrounding land is flush with wilderness. Whitetail deer are abundant as are a great variety of songbirds. Each loop starts high on the south rim, descends into the valley, and climbs back to the north rim. A short ride to the right along the top of the rim heads back to the trail head. Elevation Change: The terrain is rolling throughout with very few flat areas. Steep 40 to 50 foot climbs are found on all of the loops."

Great trails, but loops are stacked. Have to get on #1 loop or #2 to get on #3 and #4 loops. #4 loop was not yet open at time of ride. Mountain bikers are restricted to single track trails.
Much longer than 0.7miles, this trail is fast and fun. Nothing too technical, although high speed decents make it interesting. I'd gladly pay a few bucks to ride a trail that is maintained like this. Beautiful area as well. Courses are well marked for difficulty. Do watch out for hikers/runners.
