This Wisconsin Trail Has Endless Boardwalks And You’ll Want To Explore Them All

The area around our state capital is quickly becoming one of the most connected, easy to navigate spots for non-vehicular transportation. There were already a number of great trails and paths in and around Madison – Dane County has 150 miles of off-road bicycle and pedestrian paths – but a recently open boardwalk trail connects the city of Madison to nearby McFarland and is the first phase of a plan to construct 11 miles of boardwalk paths for non-vehicular use.

Users can access the Lower Yahara River Trail from the Capital City Trail at the Lewis Nine Springs E-Way parking lot at 1949 Moorland Rd., Madison, WI 53711. The McDaniel Park entrance in McFarland is located at 4806 McDaniel Ln., McFarland, WI 53558. The Lussier Family Heritage Center is located at 3101 Lake Farm Rd., Madison, WI 53711.

Wisconsin has a fantastic history of converting old railroad trails for public use and the state has recently been working to ensure all those trails are connected, to make an unprecedented system all across the state. Learn more about some of these amazing trails here.
