Hartman Creek is one of Wisconsin's busiest state parks, and the nearby Chain O' Lakes is one of the state's most popular tourism destinations-a double-edged sword that might make a bicyclist think the area is too crowded for quiet riding. Yet, even on the busies summer holiday weekends, bicyclists will find just moderate and slow-paced traffic that allows for hours of quiet riding though this scenic area. The reason? This is a land of summer homes, with a few lakeside resorts and motels to attract transient weekend tourists. Things to see: Hartman Creek State Park; Whispering Pines State Park; Crystal River; chain of twenty-seven connected lakes; antiques; arts, and gift shops; waterfront restaurants; boat rides on the lakes; motorboat and canoe rentals.
