Whether flying into Joshua Sanford Airport, biking in on the Hillsboro State Bike Trail, or riding through the rolling hills on motorcycle, the City of Hillsboro is the place to escape. From the historic downtown to the surrounding countryside, you will find a land like no other in the State of Wisconsin – winding rivers, historic farmsteads, trails, and community celebrations filled with pride and tradition.
Located on the eastern border of Vernon County at the bisection of State Highways 33/80/82, Hillsboro is a gateway to the non-glacial West-Central Wisconsin region. Activities in the area include sites on the Kickapoo and Baraboo Rivers, Wildcat Mountain State Park, Vernon County Round Barns, and Amish settlements, and a host of community events including celebrating its Czech heritage with the Cesky Den festival, where residents celebrate being the “Czech Capital of Wisconsin.” The City also offers a number of public parks for recreational activities, including the extremely popular Hillsboro State Bike Trail that connects to the historic “400” State Trail and the Elroy-Sparta Trail. Hillsboro is truly one of the hidden gems in the State of Wisconsin with something to offer the whole family!
