I drove up there from the Round Lake, IL area in mid-April to check it out. I had planned to bike the trails, but the biking trails were closed, as were the horse trails (probably due to wet conditions). Be aware of the use fees: $10 vehicle, $4 trail pass fee (bikes, horses). Cheaper for Wisconsinites. 3 stars for now; didn't spend enough time to really rate it. Just wanted to pass on the info about fees and trail closings. They have a phone number, 262-878-5600. Call ahead. 26313 Burlington Rd., Kansasville, WI 53139.

Tunnel Vision: Elroy-Sparta Trail- and More

I walked this, and the 400 state trail and more, camping along the way, on a 200 mile walk when I turned 50 in 2005. Met some very nice bicyclists who were doing a large group cross country trip, with a big truck hauling their gear. The tunnels down the road were cool. Small town cafes and taverns yielded some good sandwiches. Nice bike trail, even though I walked/backpacked it.

Great loop trail, perfect for a stroll, run, bike ride, or dog walk.
The hilltop features Native American burial mounds, and the view from the peak is worth checking out.

Cam-Rock County Park

The first portion of the trail, between downtown Cambridge and CamRock #1, is flat and easy to hike, bike or cross-country ski, perfect for beginners and young children. CamRock #1 has a nice shelter, restroom facilities and play area, which is perfect for taking a break or picnicking along the way. The second leg, between CamRock #1 and 2 passes through some very pretty wetlands and woods with amazing views. The last section, between CamRock #2 and 3 is the most challenging, but is well worth the effort. Do the entire trail or just one section. Parking is available at several points along the way. For those interested in canoeing or kayaking, a launch area is available at the trail head in Cambridge. Bike and snowshoe rentals are available at CamRock Cafe and Sport shop on Main St just a block away.

The trail is wide and well-groomed. We especially liked the boardwalk through the marsh.

Meyers Beach Sea Cave Trail

My husband & I spent Valentine's day hiking to the ice caves when Lake Superior was frozen enough to walk on. It was about 10 degrees, but the 1 mile out to the caves warmed us up! It was an amazing experience!! It was crowded, but I didn't pay any attention to the others. The views of the ice caves, up close and personal, were spectacular!! Dogs are allowed, but on a leash.
