Named for the low hills left behind by the glaciers that shaped the landscape in southeastern Wisconsin, this is one of the best hikes in the book for bird watching, with a plethora of species that roost in the trees that line the path as it moves through farm country. This trail is very popular year-round, with snowshoers and snowmobilers taking advantage of its long, straight stretches. Spring brings cyclists who zip along the trail’s 52 miles beginning on the eastern edge of Madison and running all the way to the town of Waukesha.
