STATE TRAIL SYSTEMS
Fees: Each bicyclist and horse rider age 16 or older needs a Wisconsin state trail pass while using the trails. State Trail Passes are available at self-pay stations at the trailheads or at the Walworth County Visitors Bureau, 2375 E. Geneva St., Delavan, 262-728-6000. Wisconsin State Park Vehicle Admission Stickers apply where applicable.

Kettle Moraine State Forest The Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest has more than 160 miles of trails, varying in difficulty, length, and permitted uses. Steep climbs or descents are common. Best known for two of the best biking destinations - The Emma Carlin and John Muir Trails.

Emma Carlin Trail System - This trail system goes through a hardwood forest with mostly hilly terrain. Three color-coded trails ranging from 3.5 to 8 miles. The trails in this system are single-track mountain bike trails that are generally more difficult than the John Muir Trails.
  • Brown Loop, moderate, 3.5 miles: Skirt in and out of pines and hardwoods, pass a kettle lowland, then after joining up with the orange loop, proceed uphill along a moraine and back downhill to the trail head.
  • Orange Loop, moderate/hard, 6 miles: Traverse the contours of the glacial geography, generally uphill to the scenic overlook where the Connector trail meets the Carlin trails. Then get ready for lots of ups and downs until meeting back with the brown loop.
  • Green Loop, hard, 8 miles: This trail is continuous with the orange, until it splits off on the southern half of the loop. Here you are in for several difficult ups and downs.
  • Trailhead - County Highway Z, just south of Highway 59
