This is a really nice bike ride. The trail goes through three tunnels. You need a flashlight. We dropped our car off in Elroy and got a shuttle to Sparta, then biked the 32.5 miles back to Elroy. There is several towns along the trail to get something to eat or drink or get ice cream.
We started in kendall at the "Depot". We paid $20.00 to have a guide (friends of elroy sparta trail president "Dave") drive us to tunnel 3 and drop us off. He takes your own car and then parks it back at the depot so it is waiting for you. He gave us some history about the trails during the drive.... 更多
Very COOL! And not just the chilly tunnels! In spite of the rain earlier in the day, there were only a couple of soft spots in the limestone. Kelly at the Kendall Park House was MOST gracious and helpful. Totally pleasant experience and encounters with fellow cyclists along the way. Wonderful to be immersed in the farming and rural landscapes!... 更多

They have a list of Chamber volunteers who will shuttle you to where you'd like to start your trip - have two sets of car keys with you - the volunteer comes to the depot and rides with you to your destination and takes your vehicle back... 更多

It could have been the weather, the gentle grades, the tunnels, the beautiful green scenery, the friendly people along the way, but the combination yielded an unforgettable experience. I ran into at least three other couples who came here for a visit because of the trail.... 更多
Rode the Elroy-Sparta trail from Sparta to Norwalk, and from Elroy to the first tunnel. Trail was in very good shape, except for one area washed out just north of Norwalk. Very fun to walk through the Northern tunnel - make sure to take a flashlight - it gets very dark in the middle.' Great way to spend a beautiful... 更多
We biked the entire trail, round-trip, from Sparta to Elroy and back on the last Saturday in July. This trail is absolutely remarkable, it took us 7 hours to complete, we measure the trail at close to 70 miles round-trip, which is a bit longer than the advertised 32 mile trail. This is our 3rd round trip in the last... 更多
