The Yahara River Bike Path, on the northeastern side of Madison, is anchored by Tenney Park on one end and the 17-mile Capital City Trail on the other. From one recreational amenity to the other, the paved trail offers views of the river as it traverses Yahara River Parkway and is dotted with trees. Mid-way, you’ll have the option of crossing the river and entering Burr Jones Field, a perfect spot for outdoor sports.
Once you reach Tenney Park, on the shores of Lake Mendota, you can enjoy swimming, picnicking, watching the boats on the water, or playing in the fields, volleyball courts, or playground.
Parking can be found in Tenney Park (1414 East Johnson Street) and Burr Jones Field (1820 E. Washington Avenue).
