The US Highway 12 Path offers a convenient, non-motorized alternative to traveling on the highway. The paved pathway begins in Middleton and heads northwest paralleling the roadway, separated from traffic by a wide grassy median. (From this southern end, you can connect to the Pheasant Branch Creek Corridor Trail to follow a lush wooded creek eastward through Middleton.)
Much of the trail experience is wide open and rural. You might see cows out in the pastures and red-winged black birds atop fence posts. Mostly farms and occasionally businesses dot the route. Just past Springfield Corners, the trail ends at Rauls Road.
There is a gap of a few miles (which can be traversed via the the paved shoulder of Highway 12) before the trail picks up again at N. Dunlap Hollow Road, continuing its northward journey through the Wisconsin countryside. The trail ends in Sauk City at the Phillips Boulevard bridge crossing of the Wisconsin River.
