Nearby Elroy, once a prominent railroad center, is now the hub of three beautiful bike trails. Most well known is the “granddaddy of all trails”, the Elroy-Sparta State Trail. It was the first official rails to trails conversion in the United States. Thirty-two miles in length, the abandoned Chicago & Northwestern Railroad bed passes through the trail’s most unique features of three tunnels, dug by hand in the 1870s. It joins at Elroy with the 400 Trail and the Omaha Trail(also having a tunnel).
