Get Active

There are so many ways to get outside and see Wisconsin.  Here are a few we think you might enjoy.

Wisconsin Riverside Resort

Whether a half day or full day trip, canoeing, kayaking or tubing down the Wisconsin is a beautiful and scenic experience.  The Wisconsin Riverside Resort, about 20 minutes away, has everything you need for a day on the water.


Elroy-Sparta Bike Trail

The Elroy-Sparta State Trail is the property of the State of Wisconsin and is part of its State Trails System.It is located in Hidden Valleys Country and passes through a portion of the unglaciated areas of Wisconsin exemplifying the natural beauty of our State. The trail is 32 miles in length on the abandoned Chicago & North Western Railroad bed and passes through three rock tunnels. The Kendall and Wilton tunnels are ¼ mile long and the Norwalk tunnel is ¾ mile long. The trail is covered with limestone screenings and provides a smooth riding surface. The bridges are covered with planks and are guarded with railings.


Hiking in Richland Center

This easy-graded rail trail invites hikers and cyclers in spring, summer and fall, and snowmobilers in winter. This 14.3-mile trail is laid on an abandoned rail bed, and gives riders a chance to enjoy the beauty of 250-foot river bluffs without having to ride over them.  For a challenge you can take on several bluff-top climbs on a 15-mile on-road option which, while mostly on paved roads, features 1.7 miles of primitive gravel on Cardinal Crest Road through a tunnel of trees. Probably the most refreshing stretch is on WI 60 as the road hugs the edge of Bogus Bluff next to the Wisconsin River.  This new crushed-limestone rail-trail with several nice town parks makes for a pleasant family ride; or, you can get a workout by taking on the bluffs via the paved and gravel road route. Scenery includes farm, river, and marsh views on the rail-trail; farm, woods, ridge-top, and Wisconsin River views on the road route.
