The Tunnel Trail In Wisconsin That Will Take You On An Unforgettable Adventure

Located over in the western-central part of our state, the Elroy-Sparta trail is primarily known as a bike trail, but it’s also open for walkers and runners. Though rails-to-trails conversions aren’t very rare anymore, this is actually the first ever done in the US. This awesome trail goes through not one, but three different abandoned train tunnels for a totally amazing and unique experience. In fact, the path, which goes between the towns of Elroy and Sparta, crosses 34 bridges and through three tunnels over the course of its 32 miles.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
