The Badger State Trail, which heads south from Madison to the Illinois state line, boasts its own 1,200-foot Stewart Tunnel—with a twist: the Stewart Tunnel is built on a curve, so riders cannot see the other end as they enter the tunnel.
The fairly level grade and smooth limestone surface make this trail suitable for bicyclists, walkers and joggers. Each bicyclist age 16 or older needs a Wisconsin state trail pass while using the trail.
In 1845, Mr. Bissinger opened a brewery in the beautiful rolling green hills of Southern Wisconsin, inhabited by many people from Switzerland and simply called it Monroe Brewery. These new Swiss immigrants had brought their dairy expertise and passion for artisanal cheese making skills to their new homeland. To this day, Monroe has the most certified specialty master cheese makers in the entire country.
