Also known as the Tri-County Trail, this ride is on a former railroad corridor that meanders through the heart of southwest Wisconsin’s Driftless Area, a massive tract of land noted for the rolling hills and rocky outcroppings left untouched by glaciers. On this trail you will cross a total of 57 bridges and overpasses including the 440-foot bridge at Brownstown. Monroe, the trail’s southern end, is known as the “Swiss Cheese Capital” of the United States. You will pass through several other communities, one of which is Mineral Point, one of the state’s oldest communities. It is a historic mining village rich with artist’s studios and galleries and many old homes with have been restored.
