Blue Mound State Park

Perched atop the highest point in southern Wisconsin at 1,719 feet of elevation, the park offers spectacular views along with unique geological features. The only Wisconsin state park with a swimming pool is equipped with a lift for persons with disabilities. Cross-country ski trail in season with warming house available. Pets are welcome in Wisconsin State Parks but must be on a leash and under control at all times. Certain areas may be off limits to pets. Visit our website for more details. The 15.5 miles of challenging off-road, singletrack bicycle trails will bring even more elevation challenges to the park's trail mix. The difficulty ratings shown on the map are geared towards novice riders. More experienced single-track riders may feel the trails are less challenging than the color-coding implies. All in all, you'll have 500 feet of elevation to play with if you ride the trails and climb the paved road to the top. Not a mountain, but not bad for the Midwest. A steep connector trail accesses the Military Ridge State Trail where riders can roll on a near-level railroad grade.
