Minutes from Justin Trails Resort is the first Rails to Trails Project in America, The Grandaddy of them all, The Elroy Sparta Trail. The trail remains one of the most popular trails in the country. With three rock tunnels and five small towns along it's 32.5 mile route, the trail is a favorite Wisconsin bicycling destination. Traveling between Sparta and Elroy, the trail stretches through the communities of Norwalk, Wilton and Kendall. The trail is 32.5 miles in length on the abandoned Chicago & North Western Railroad bed and passes through three rock tunnels. The three century-old railroad tunnels hightlight the trail. The Kendall and Wilton tunnels are 1/4 mile long and the Norwalk tunnel is just over 3/4 mile long. The tunnels are dark and cool, even on the brightest days, and water from springs above the tunnels can trickle onto the trail. Bikers should walk bikes through the tunnels. The Trail is covered with limestone screenings and provides a smooth riding surface. The bridges are covered with planks and are guarded with railings. The Elroy-Sparta State Trail is one of 4 trails called Bike 4 Trails. There are 101 miles of connected Wisconsin biking splendor on the Great River State Trail, La Crosse River State Trail, Elroy-Sparta State Trail and the "400" State Trail.
