    Got off my road bike for a quick run at Kletsch/Milwaukee River parkway. Trail was bone dry despite recent heavy rains. A bit overgrown in some areas but, definitely improved over my last visit. All fallen limbs cleared. Really nice run for me since I can access via the Interurban from my home.

    The rating will vary, based on the time of year. Spring can create enough water that a main route will be covered by what seems like a shallow pond. Summer is good. Fall can be overgrown to the point that you can't see the trail, in a lot of parts.
    Overall, it tight, slow, but enjoyable.

    There is not really a trail, but a web of trails that weave all around the small park. At the moment the trail system is quite overgrown to the extent that you sometimes cannot see the trail at all, and sometimes are riding and then realize you are no longer on a trail. I would agree with the other review that areas can be muddy because of the river. Overall, the trails have a lot of potential and can be fun if you don't mind feeling a little lost.

    This was one of my first mountain biking experiences. The trails are great if you need to do a very quick weekend ride, but start to fade when ridden for large amounts of time. Some parts of the trail are almost always wet because they are so close to the river and are not above it. I wouldn't recommend this though, because the nearby Hoyt Park is a much better option.
