It's certainly making me reconsider a 207k loop I had planned out from Monroe WI that loops up to Fitchburg and over to Dodgeville via the Badger State, Military Ridge, and Cheese Country trails. It wouldn't have all the road crossings that the Fox River Trail does, but that's still a whole lot of time to be on a MUP. Especially since it looks like it's mostly lined on both sides with trees. I've got a feeling it might get pretty boring.

*edit* Oh it looks like a lot of it is crushed limestone, too, so it might be a bit of a slog.
