Quarry Ridge Recreation Area
This recreation area provides direct access to the Military Ridge and Capital City State Trails. It provides more than 3 miles of off-road mountain bike and hiking trails within. Quarry Ridge also contains a shelter that can accommodate up to 75 people, restrooms, picnic tables, information kiosk, and a parking lot. The site consists of a wooded area, an abandoned gravel pit with very steep inclines, and an 11-acre stormwater detention pond that collects stormwater from the Jamestown Neighborhood.
Quarry Ridge Recreation Area offers a great facility for mountain biking. It features a network of singletrack trails for beginner to expert riders, as well as areas with technical trail features. The trails are free and open year round. The Fitchburg Parks Department partners with Capital Off-Road Pathfinders (CORP), the local chapter of the Wisconsin Off-Road Bicycling Association (WORBA), to develop and maintain the mountain bike trails.
