White River Trail

White River State Trail  This multi-use 12 mile crushed limestone trail follows a former railroad bed and connects the City of Elkhorn to Burlington and passes through the historic Villages of Lyons and Springfield.  The trail offers scenic views of farmland, wetlands and waterways.  Uses for this trail include hiking, biking, snowmobiles and a two-mile adjacent horse trail is open between Springfield and Lyons. 
A State Bicycle Trail pass is required.  Passes can be purchased in Elkhorn at Deakins Isle, Elkhorn Chamber of Commerce, Walworth County Visitors Bureau and the Walworth County Public Works Department.  In Springfield, passes can be purchased at Pedal and Cup in the historic train depot (www.pedalandcup.com) and in Lyons at Lyon's Grocery Store.  Passes can also be purchased at four self-registration stations on the trail.   The stations are located in the parking lots along the trail on County Trunk Highway H and County Trunk Highway NN, at State Highway 120 in Springfield and at Spring Valley Road.

Directions to White River Trail:

The western end of the trail is at County Highway H south of the Interstate 43 and US Highway 12 interchange in Elkhorn.  From Highway 12, take the County Highway NN exit west and then turn left (south) on Highway H.  Go about .6 miles south to the trailhead parking lot.  Parking is also available on the northeast corner of the intersection of CTH NN and the White River State Trail.  In Springfield a lot accommodates horse and snowmobile trailers.  It is about a block east of Highway 120 on Signal Street, a half block south of the trail.  Parking is also available in downtown Lyons and at the Pedal & Cup in Springfield.
