The Military Ridge State Trail affords beautiful views from the ridgetop, passes through interesting trail towns, and provides access to Blue Mound State Park and Governor Dodge State Park. The trail leaves the rail bed and follows the natural rolling terrain on an seal-coated limestone section between Ridgeway and Dodgeville. Spur trails into Blue Mound State Park and Governor Dodge State Park are very steep. The trail is mostly open, with occasional shaded stretches. The use of sunblock is advised. Wisconsin State Trails have a carry-in/carry-out policy. Make provisions for carrying out any refuse. No trash receptacles are provided on-trail.
