This was a great trail. We started in Verona and rode about 14 miles to Mount Herob where we stayed the night (took a back pack with the necessities). We then started in the morning riding farther turning around at Blue Mount. Seems that Mount Herob is one of the best places to stop if you are interested in finding most things a little town can offer like hotels, motels, eateries, etc. There seem to be only two motels in Mount Herob..we stayed at a place called Kaerab (points for being close in spelling :). With tax it was $56. Room was clean and right next to a Walgreens and a few eateries. Nothing fancy but its all about the ride anyway. The trail offered a lot of scenery. You will love riding up to Blue Mount from Verona. Its a bit up hill (nothing terrible) all the way but coming back is GREAT. If your looking for a stretch this is it and if your new to riding or having ridden a bit, this has plenty of stops along the way every 3-6 miles.
Wonderful train from Verona, Wi to Dodgeville, WI. Very well maintained and great facilities along the trail!
