First visit to trail. Visitors are still coming to see ‘the new attraction‘. Trail was crowded as were the parks along its length. Bicyclists are traveling too fast for safety. Design of the trail topography is severe. It makes it almost impossible for very young kids to ride gear-less bikes along its surface. The entrance off of the east side of Milwaukee is visually stunning but a safety nightmare for anyone riding a LWB recumbent.
Overall impression is that they paid too much for this boondoggle.
