The Dinky Trail opening soon between Woodman and Fennimore

The name doesn’t mean small, short or less in any way but instead refers to the longest running narrow gauge railroad in Wisconsin’s history. From 1878 until 1926, a small narrow gauge railroad, known as the Dinky, connected what is now the city of Fennimore and the village of Woodman in Grant County. Two round trips a day, every day for 48 years! The railroad disappeared with the introduction of the automobile and all that remained until now were memories and some footprints in the landscape. Well, the Dinky’s route will soon become popular again with the opening of the Dinky Bike Trail on Saturday, May 16.
