This is one spectacular ride that will have you wondering why Wisconsin is called "America's Dairyland"-the "Midwest Mountain State" might be more appropriate. Geologists believe that millions of years ago there were mountains here that were taller than the Rockies. What remains are ridges of those mountains, with significant enough elevation change to provide spectacular views and plenty of challenges for all bicyclists. Take some time to explore the park, where roads cut through the dense forest and lead to a secluded lake and the banks of the river. Wildlife, particularly deer, are abundant in the park as well as along the route of the ride; keep your eyes open for the white tails. The park alone is worthy of its own bike ride, with more than 5 miles of paved roads and 200 feet of elevation gain and loss through spectacular and rugged scenery within its boundaries. Things to see: Interstate Park, several lakes, grand vistas, St. Croix Falls.
