Hiking, Biking, Running

Wisconsin hiking, biking, running, climbing and more.

Get out there and enjoy the great outdoors of Wisconsin!

Are you a backpacker, section hiker, or thru-hiker? Are you training for a half or full marathon, or perhaps the IRONMAN in Madison? Do you have a biking bucket list or an annual mile goal?

No matter which of the above categories you fall into, then you’ll be pleased to know Wisconsin has more then 2,500 miles of hiking and running trails and more than 90 bike trails in the “rails-to-trails” system.

Did you know that of the 11 National Scenic Trails in the U.S., Wisconsin has one of them? It’s the Ice Age Trail, a 1,000+ mile trail that traces the last advance of the glacier that covered much of the state during the Ice Age. There are lots of Wisconsin B&Bs along the way, so get to work on achieving “Thousand Miler” status with the Ice Age Alliance.

Other popular Wisconsin hiking destinations include Devil’s Lake State Park in Baraboo, the northern and southern units of Kettle Moraine State Forest in Southeastern Wisconsin, Wyalusing State Park at the confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi rivers, and Timm’s Hill of Price County which is the highest natural point in Wisconsin. There’s also the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest and the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in the Northern part of Wisconsin. Make sure Copper Falls State Park, a secluded waterfall hike, is on your list too while in the north.

For trail runners, try the 22-mile La Crosse River State Trail in Southwestern Wisconsin or the 20-mile Old Abe State Trail in Northwestern Wisconsin or the 24- mile Sugar River State Trail in Southern Wisconsin. Any one of those should help with your distance running regime.

Our state is one of the crown jewels in the nation’s rails-to-trails conservancy program, with more than 90 Wisconsin bike trails in the system. These are former railroad corridors that have been converted into recreational trails. In 1965, the Elroy-Sparta State Trail became the first rail trail in the U.S.

Most of Wisconsin’s 41 State Trails are rail trails. Try the Badger State Trail in south central Wisconsin, the Glacial Drumlin State Trail in central Wisconsin, the Gandy Dancer State Trail (in the Golden Age of railroading, workers were known as “gandy dancers” because they worked in rhythm using Gandy brand tools to pound spikes) in far Northwestern Wisconsin, and the Ahnapee State Trail near Door County.

The League of American Bicyclists bestowed Platinum status on Madison as part of its Bicycle Friendly Community Program which ranks cities across the United State, with Madison joining just a handful of other cities to reach this impressive ranking.

Don’t pedal by the hundreds of miles more of quiet country roads that wind through pristine forests.

Will it be the exercise challenge or the stunning scenery that takes your breath away? We’re guessing both.
