Spring is almost here, and you’re probably eager to take that bike and get out of Madison for a while. Where to go? How about Mount Horeb?

Just 36 minutes and 22 miles west of Madison, the Trollway in Mount Horeb is lined with 15 trees that have been carved into life-size trolls.

Traveling west of the town and into what locals from Norway call the Valley of the Elves, you will find Little Norway, once the homestead of Norwegian immigrants. An open-air museum features restored pioneer buildings, including a stavkirke (medieval church) that was built in Little Norway for the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair. Little Norway is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Not far from Little Norway, you can explore the remarkable stalactites and stalagmites of Cave of the Mounds. At a constant 50 degrees, the cave is open year-round.

A few miles from Cave of the Mounds is Blue Mound State Park, which offers camping, hiking, off-road biking, and beautiful views of the surrounding area.

Mount Horeb has its Summer Frolic in June, an art fair in July, a brew fest in September, and the Fall Heritage Festival in October. There’s so much to do just a short motorcycle ride from Madison.
