Green Lake Bike Trails
Green Lake has developed a series of on-road bike tours; quiet rides to neighboring small towns or a 27-mile loop around the city. You can pedal off to Princeton or Ripon or Berlin and enjoy views of the rural countryside as you go. As you travel past meadows and rolling hills, look for small songbirds in the thickets, raptors perched along trees in woodlots and Turkey Vultures overhead. Listen for Willow Flycatchers calling from the elderberry bushes, and for the chatter of Belted Kingfishers.
