In spite of a few showers from time to time, the weather has been some of the best for bikers who want to experience the Elroy-Sparta State Trail.
The trail spans 32 miles between the towns of Elroy and Sparta on the abandoned Chicago & North Western Railroad bed. Traveling from Elroy to Sparta will bring you through the towns of Kendall, which is the trail headquarters of the Elroy-Sparta State Trail; Wilton, which is the heart of the Elroy-Sparta State Trail and Norwalk. Along the way you will observe wetlands, prairies, farms and un-glaciated areas since the trail is located in the northern Driftless Area of Wisconsin.
The highlights of the trail are the three rock tunnels. Two of the tunnels are approximately ¼ mile long. These two tunnels are located between Kendall/Wilton and Wilton/Norwalk. The tunnel located between Norwalk and Sparta is ¾ of a mile long.
For those biking enthusiasts that want to experience more of the area, there is an additional 68 miles of connected trails to the Elroy-Sparta State Trail. The “400” State Trail is a 22 mile trail located between the cities of Elroy and Reedsburg, Wisconsin.
