Hike the UW Arboretum

Scenic trails take you through woods, prairies, marshland and gardens.


It sure feels good to stretch your legs. And thankfully, Madison's got plenty of trails to do just that. In fact, we're the second-best city for biking in the nation. With over 200 miles of paths, trails and dedicated bike lanes, you're free to hike, bike, run, blade and stroll around our Yahara chain of lakes or out into the burbs.
