Summer in Southwest Wisconsin



Summer in the Hidden Valleys is meant to be enjoyed outdoors bicycling, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, rafting or just walking around in the beautiful downtowns.

Ever wanted to take a tour on a riverboat complete with an authentic paddlewheel? If the answer is yes, then a trip to La Crosse County is in order.

The Black and La Crosse rivers meet with the mighty Mississippi River and continue to influence the natural history and culture of the area.

In Richland County, pass by working farms to get a taste of rural, small-town life in the area. Take one of the winding backroads which travel along valley bottoms flanked by towering hills and ridges to truly enjoy the county. Hardwood forests also call out to be explored by foot.

Swimming pools, lakes and streams throughout the region encourage you to cool off under the azure-colored sky.

Enjoy dinner outdoors at one of the many fine dining establishments in the Hidden Valleys or take a tour of a working winery.

Elroy-Sparta State Bike TrailThe oldest rails-to-trails conversion in the country begins with the Elroy-Sparta State Trail and was opened in 1967. This trail is located in Hidden Valleys Country and passes through a portion of the non-glaciated areas of Wisconsin exemplifying the natural beauty of our state.
