“Sidie Hollow County Park is 521 scenic acres, including a 40-acre lake formed as part of a flood control dam. In 2006, Vernon Trails entered into a strong relationship with Vernon County Parks and immediately implemented the design and development of a shared-use, natural surface trail system. Vernon Trails has continued to improve, maintain, and add to these trails that surround the lake, trout streams, and campgrounds. Sidie Hollow’s trails are perfect for hiking, trail running, snowshoeing, nordic skiing, and mountain biking.”
