Sparta is known as the Bicycling Capital of America. One visit there and you’ll see why. The Elroy Sparta State Trail is one of the most beautiful Rails-to-Trails paths in the state. As you bike or hike the trail you’ll go through three old railroad tunnels built in 1873. Walking through one of these is an experience in itself. But Sparta features more than just biking. There’s fishing, boating, golfing and of course shopping in its unique downtown. Visit the Four Historic Corners where all four buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places or try your luck at milking a cow at the annual Sparta Butterfest. Whether you bike or not Sparta is a place you can enjoy all year round.
