Located near Cambridge, in Lake Mills, Aztalan State Park is a National Historic Landmark and contains one of Wisconsin's most important archaeological sites, showcasing an ancient Middle-Mississippian village that thrived between A.D. 1000 and 1300. The people who settled Aztalan built large, flat-topped pyramidal mounds and a stockade around their village. Portions of the stockade and two mounds have been reconstructed in the park.
Running between Wisconsin's two largest urban areas, this trail stretches for 52 miles through farmlands and glacial topography.

In just a short walk, you’ll find yourself amid all of Cambridge’s shops and restaurants as well as Cambridge Winery and Hinchley’s Dairy Farm.
“My husband, our 2 young kids, and I enjoyed exploring charming Cambridge during the day and had the best night's sleep. The beds were extremely comfortable, the temperature was perfect, and the rooms were dark and quiet so we could all sleep in. The hosts are so welcoming and you can tell they are truly in their element. Covington Manor is only about 30 min from Madison, so we were also able to enjoy the city before heading home. I highly recommend Covington Manor for anyone who needs to unwind and relax. ”
