In 1967, when the Elroy-Sparta State Trail became the first rails-to-trails bike trail in the world, Wisconsin established itself as one of the most bike friendly states in America. Since then, thousands of miles of bike and pedestrian trails have been established in Wisconsin - most of the miles on converted rail right-of-ways.
Biking on trails allows cyclists the opportunity to get comfortable with long distance bike touring while getting off the roads and away from traffic. Most trails are paved with asphalt or crushed limestone. Wisconsin's network of trails cuts through the heart of rich urban cultural districts and scenic rural valleys. Between state trails and county trails there is a bike trail near you in Wisconsin. This is my list of trails I have written about and a directory to individual blog posts.
