Biking

We live in one of the richest areas of the country for biking opportunities with a significant number of trails and on-road routes. If you’re looking for mountain bike single-track, dedicated paved biking trails, or great rural road biking, we’ve got you covered.

Highlights

Dedicated bike trails (almost exclusively off road)

  • Glacial Drumlin Trail: Trail running east-west across the GHA from Waukesha to the east and Cottage Grove to the west. The trail is combination of paved and packed limestone gravel suitable for most riders. Note that a State Trail Pass is required to use this trail.
  • Glacial River Trail: Running north-south and connecting Watertown to Janesville, this trail is a combination of on-road and dedicated paved trail. No trail pass required.

Mountain bike trails

  • CamRock County Park: This park holds a great variety of single-track routes to challenge both the beginner and expert. See http://www.madcitydirt.com for more details on trails and current trail conditions.
  • Glacial River Mountain Bike Trails: This new set of trails off the Glacial River Trail just south of Jefferson offers beginners and intermediate riders a chance to test their skills. More advanced routes are planned. Check with Jefferson County for current conditions.

Road riding

  • The GHA’s plethora of paved rural roads provides a nearly endless set of opportunities for road bikers to find low traffic roads to explore. Either plan your own route using Wisconsin DOT’s County Bike Maps or search with your favorite riding app: RideWithGPS, MapMyRide, or Strava.
