Subject says it all. DNR says https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/parks/name/badger/ the trail is closed due to flooding but that was a week ago. Anyone know if the Badger State Trail is bikable?

Your DNR link does not say BST is closed due to flooding. Read it again. I started a thread about bike trails and flooding on Aug 30: viewtopic.php?f=38&t=78351

Here is what I wrote about BST:
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.

I presume the soft muddy spots dried up since then, but now more rain is forecast the next several days so trail could get worse. Here is a map of trail conditions but looks a little out of date:

There is a site and FB group where Madison bike trail conditions are discussed: https://www.madisonbikes.org/

BST looks dry now but kind of hilly.
