The 1,200-foot Stewart Tunnel (between Belleville and Monticello) on the Badger State Trail is closed until further notice. WDNR staff are evaluating the tunnel and the length of closure is dependent upon the work needed to address public safety concerns.
Patty and Dave, who live right along the Badger Trail, stopped at the rest stop in 'Old Fitchburg' for a rest and to enjoy the GREAT weather on the 22nd of February. 63 degrees . . . an all time high for February in the greater Madison area! They ride the trail three or four times a week, including during the winter weather whenever the trail is plowed and not too icy.
