About 13 miles east of Baraboo on Hwy 33 is the city of Portage, Wisconsin. Portage is about a 20 minute drive from Devil’s Lake State Park but has a lot to offer as well. The city hosts a beautiful section of the Ice Age Trail and two small, black-top paved bike trails. The first, the Levee Trail follows along the Wisconsin River for about 2.8 miles. The second trail is much shorter, maybe a mile in total, but follows along Portage’s historic canal. Both trails have little elevation and are great places for the kids to learn. There is a nice park with shelter along the Levee trail where you can grab a soda or bottled water from a machine as well. These trails are certainly not long enough to make a “day” of it, but if you include a little more sight-seeing and maybe a hike upon the Ice Age Trail, the trip to Portage can make a nice excursion.
