The Great River State Bike Trail passes directly through Trempealeau County. North takes you to the Trempealeau National Wildlife Refuge; south takes you all the way to LaCrosse. A parking lot and facilities make Trempealeau a great place to start your trek. This trail offers a unique opportunity to bike through the Black River bottoms. Listen for sandhill cranes. Birding and wildlife watching opportunities abound. Bring your binoculars! There are nearly 140 miles of level, well maintained bike paths located within the interconnecting trails of Western Wisconsin and the Mississippi River Valley.
