Mount Horeb, WI - "Troll capital of the world"

Mt. Horeb, 15 mins west of Verona on US 151, calls itself the “Troll Capital of the World”. But its citizens are friendly, decent folk –- not a troll or ogre among them. The name is for the carved wood statues of the mythical beings scattered along the length of main street, affectionately dubbed “The Trollway”. Founded by Norwegians in the first half of the 1800's, the city kept some of the more whimsical parts of its Scandinavian heritage while forging a tight-knit and still growing community.

Mount Horeb leisure & recreation

Just 15 minutes or so west of Epic Systems, the Madison area’s largest private employer, plus other westside area businesses, Mt. Horeb residents can stay as connected to the city as they wish, or they can indulge in the many outdoor recreational opportunities found in the surrounding tree-covered hills – skiing at Tyrol Basin, fishing in blue-ribbon trout stream the Sugar River, and hiking and biking on Military Ridge Trail, a converted railroad.
