GLACIAL DRUMLIN BIKE TRAIL- This trail is very straight and flat, traversing enormously productive farmland. The reson I am recomending this trail is that it goes thru my hometown of deerfield Wisconsin. Althought I have not been there in a long time. This trail was in my childhood a well used railroad track. After discontinue of rails, the move to turn into a biking and hiking trail commenced.
Intermittent stretches of wetlands add contrast. Many sections of the trail are lined with trees which lend shade and comfort. Traffic is fairly light on the summer day. The trail crosses a few meandering streams, but has relatively few bridges. Cottage Grove and Deerfield are typical small Wisonsin towns where suppies may be obtained. In fact your patronage in these towns are highly appreciated. Lake Mills has a pleasant downtown and a lake where you may relax after a hard grind. Overall, this is a pleasant trail to ride, with a good surface, good scenery,and proximity to Madison on one end and the Milwaukee area on the other.
