The Elroy-Sparta State Trail

“The Granddaddy of All Trails”- it was the first official rails to trails conversion in the United States.  Thirty two miles in length, the abandoned Chicago and Northwestern Railroad bed passes through the trail’s most unique features: three tunnels, dug by hand in the 1870’s.  The surface of the trail is smooth, hard packed limestone.  The cool, sheltered portions of the trail open to the loveliest scenery in the state.

Trail Fees Are Required
Trail passes are required for bikers 16 years of age and older.  A daily trail pass is $5.00 and an annual pass is $25.00.  These passes are good on any Wisconsin State Trail. Trail passes are available for purchase at The Elroy Commons.
