Badger State trail: https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/parks/name/badger/
The Badger State Trail has reopened but is very wet has some soft muddy spots in some locations and will for the foreseeable future. Extra caution is advised; narrow street tires are not recommended.

Pheasant branch, Middleton: http://www.pheasantbranch.org/
There is NO Public Access to the City's portion of the Conservancy. At this time it remains closed to the public.
The Dane County portion of the Conservancy is still open and fared fairly well in the storm (this is the open part on the North side with no bridges).
