Route
“Like nothing you've ever experienced on a bicycle, this is a place to make memories. America's first rail to trail project, the Elroy Sparta bike trail goes through 3 very long tunnels. We have bicycles you can borrow. Your smartphone flashlights will come in handy. A nice ride is between the villages of Kendall and Wilton (9 miles each way). Kendall has a visitor center, and there is a tunnel in between. A great dive bar in Kendall is the HIdden Inn Bar & Grill.”

Museum
“Deke Slayton was one of the original 7 U.S. astronauts. He was from our area and graduated from Sparta High School. Some NASA items and some of Slayton's space-related items are on exhibit. Sparta is also home to the Elroy/Sparta Bicycle trail - the first Rails to Trails project. The museum features collectible vintage bicycles and other memorabilia. Space and bicycles are integrated in a "transportation" them that may sound a bit unusual but they pull it off well with interesting exhibits!”
