Mountain Biking Sugar River Trail

  Add a review
#209 of 388 mountain bike trails in Wisconsin
#16,121 in the world

The trail extends from New Glarus to Brodhead with the villages of Monticello and Albany located between allowing for refreshing stops on the trail. When the trail bed was orginally designed by the railroad, it went around the hills making many large curves on the trail which makes this trail one of the most popular trails in the state. The Sugar River State Trail opened in the mid 70's as the second state trail in Wisconsin. Vegetation has grown to provide shade on the trail in the past 40 years making for a very enjoyable ride or hike.
