In search of a local mini-adventure, I decided to explore the Military Ridge State Trail outside of Madison, Wisconsin. The trail takes you through a few small towns and the rolling Wisconsin countryside. At the turn around point of the route, I was surprised to stumble across the stunning, whimsical EPIC campus. Exploring all the creatively themed areas of the campus and wandering through the beautiful gardens made for an unforgettable afternoon with plenty of photo opportunities!
We decided to stop in the charming little town of Mt. Horeb and grabbed a few drinks and a delicious pretzel at the Grumpy Troll Brew Pub right off the bike trail.
To finish off our ride, we stopped at Blue Mounds State Park for a snack break at the overlook and a short hike!
