Sunday’s hike was 16 miles from the Arbor Ridge Segment west of Janesville to the Janesville to Milton Segment north of Janesville. The Arbor Ridge Segment goes through the Robert O Cook Memorial Arboretum. The next segment was Devils Staircase, which runs along the Rock River. This was a really neat segment with rock steps and a good view of the river.
The Devils Staircase Segment ended at Riverside Park, which is a nice park. We stopped to try out the zip line in the park. It was fun! The Janesville Segment starts right where the Devils Staircase Segment ends. A good portion of the segment is on bike trails. I never realized Janesville had so many bike trails, and I may have to go there again with my bike! Also along the way, we saw a sign for the Rock River Trail. This sign was for the national water trail, but there are also other options to follow the trail like hiking and biking. There’s even a chocolate option! After I complete the Ice Age Trail (and Jared finishes his fourth), we’re going to do the Rock River Trail by kayak. We will also do the chocolate trail because I can’t pass up chocolate! We ended the day with a small chunk of the Janesville to Milton Segment. I had completed most of that this past summer. With the completion of Sunday’s hike I have officially finished Rock County! I’ve sent in my form and am eagearly waiting to get my Walk Across Rock County patch!
