Super trail -- until it wasn't

This photo of the Buffalo River State Trail was taken in Strum, a few miles from Osseo, Wisconsin. The Buffalo River trail website mentions that it may not be suited to road bikes, but our trikes have been OK on other trails.

We were enjoying the wildlife -- first a family of turkeys, then a fox that kept popping out to look at us as we approached, but disappearing before we got to it.

In Eleva, the trail went bad. It was like railroad ballast stones with three inches of fine sand on top. We walked, pulling the trikes through sand and muck until we could get to Highway 10. I have never been so happy to get onto a road with an inadequate shoulder and heavy traffic.
