The scenic highways and bicycle trails of the Lower Wisconsin Riverway in the ruggedly beautiful Driftless Region provide an excellent place for bicycling for families, groups of friends and organized tours.
State Highway 60 is designated by Wisconsin as one of only two Scenic Byways in the state. Wooded bluffs soar above the road while the wild Wisconsin River follows alongside. Numerous quiet country lanes wind past idyllic pastures and lazy trout streams. You’ll see sheep and dairy cows grazing the hillsides and valleys, while bald eagles and red tail hawks soar overhead. Wild turkeys and whitetail deer often can be seen along the margins of lush, forested hills.
Stop for a cold drink or a juicy burger at one of the many family-owned bar & grill establishments in the quaint villages that you’ll find every six or seven miles along the route.
The Wisconsin River Trail Organization is in the process of constructing a paved trail for biking, walking and running that connects our communities of Boscobel, Woodman, and Wauzeka to the river that defines our area. WRT is excited to share every step of the process with you, and the group’s end product will be meeting you on the trail with a smile and a friendly “hello.” Recently, the group was awarded a $200,000 State Stewardship Grant for the first phase of trail construction, which is scheduled for 2016.
And right now you can enjoy the paved Sanders Creek Trail winds right through the City of Boscobel.
