With the Ice Age Trail connecting to the Military Ridge State trail in Verona, you will find miles of hiking to enjoy.
Hop on the Military Ridge State Trail for a 41-mile gravel hiking and biking trail, which begins east of Verona and connects to Governor Dodge State Park in Iowa County.
From downtown Verona, follow the trail West along the Sugar River through a scenic wildlife area towards Riley and Mt. Horeb or head East along Badger Mill creek through Quarry Ridge towards Madison. Both offer a flat path with miles of well tended trail to enjoy.
You can also enjoy the Verona segment of the Ice Age Trail, which passes through three county parks and links up to a variety of other area trails. From the Ice Age Trail Junction on McKee road on the North end of town to Prairie Moraine County Park on the South end is a roughly 5 mile, 2 hour hike with a nice variety in landscape and a little bit of elevation change. Several kettle ponds–remnants of the area’s glacial history–are also found in the Ice Age Trail Alliance’s Moraine Kettles Preserve on the South side of Verona just as the trail crosses HWY M.
