Lower Yahara River Trail is open!

Just a quick post fueled by excitement: Yesterday was the opening day for the first phase of the Lower Yahara River Trail. This trail connects Madison with the little town of McFarland. Previously all the connections between the two consisted of heavily trafficked roads. This new trail will open up a new route for commuters as well as recreational cyclists. I went out there last night and took some footage of the trail:

Smooth asphalt, great signage, and a long boardwalk across Upper Mud Lake/Lake Waubesa. And a tavern at the McFarland end of the trail. What more could you ask for?! (Okay: There are two more phases for the trail, eventually connecting it all the way to Stoughton. So there is something more to ask for. But for now I'm really happy and excited!)
