Today is a very exciting day for Amil’s Inn Bed and Breakfast!!  We are starting our Blog.  This will give us the opportunity to share news, recipes, pictures, and so much more of what is happening at Amil’s Inn Bed and Breakfast and the beautiful Kickapoo Valley area.

We have had a splendid spring. Our onions and and potatoes have been planted for over 2 weeks.  But the most important news item today is that the Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail opens today, May 1 and will remain open until October 31, 2010.  Amil’s Inn Bed and Breakfast is located in the heart of the Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail and is a great place to begin your bike trek.

Considered the first rail-to-trail in the United States, the Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail remains one of the most popular trails in the country. With three rock tunnels and five small towns along its 32.5-mile route, the trail is a favorite Wisconsin bicycling destination.  The trail is surfaced with limestone screenings to provide a smooth surface suitable for walkers and bicyclists spring through fall .

Traveling between Sparta and Elroy, the trail stretches through the communities of Norwalk, Wilton and Kendall, passing by wetlands, prairies, farmland and unglaciated areas.

 State trail passes are required for bikers 16 and older. Daily and annual passes are available at outlets in towns along the trail as well as at Amil’s Inn Bed and Breakfast.
