Dad’s hit the Cheese County Trails

Cheese County ATV/ UTV Trails provided fun, sun and memories on Father’s day. We loaded out 3 units in Mineral Point for a day in the Iowa & Lafayette County area and headed south to Darlington, onto New Diggings General Store, and Shullsburg.

Back on the trail we hopped off the trail and headed over the hills and to the West to Leadmine Tavern , home of 32oz Longies of various flavors. After a relaxing visit on the porch while the kids played tag in the yard we headed out, just around the corner to the almost famous New Diggings General Store. The New Diggings General Store is worth a stop anytime you are in the area, live music on Sunday afternoons, salty bar popcorn and cold beers. If you stop by, make sure you walk all the way through the bar to the backyard to sit in the summer breeze. 

Loading up the family and back on the road to Shullsburg, WI for diner at The Berg . The Berg, Located in the heart of Shullsburg, Wisconsin, The Burg offers the unique combination of a classic sports bar and modern bistro – giving you the best of both worlds. Whether you want to have a small party or need a place to watch the game, stop by The Burg!

Back on trail and headed North though the beautiful farmland in South Central Wisconsin. The fields of round bales, smells of fresh cut hay, warm sunshine and laughing children this is what a Father’s Day on the Trails.
