Once we got to the only road to enter the rest stop type location (cannot turn left into park) it was a pleasant little stop. Cute photo ops

Ended up in Sparta- had to do the cheesy tourist stop. While not expecting much- was a bit of let down. Some sort of plaque would be nice. Why does this exist? Just because Sparta likes bikes? Inquiring minds would have liked to have known.

The Sparta Bike is kept in excellent condition. It is very fun trail to ride complete with train tunnels, camp grounds and Bed and Breakfasts along located along the trail. We highly recommend those who like bike riding, try out this trail.

A nice thing to do if you're passing through...especially if you're on bicycles on the Elroy-Sparta Trail which is the real star of the show. Stop by the visitor's center & grab a trail map, ask about local bike rentals/shuttles if you don't have you're...More
