Hi, welcome to the Wisconsin River Trail's organizational website. On these pages you can learn about who we are and how we are connecting the small communities of Boscobel, Woodman, and Wauzeka to the river that make us who we are. In addition you can learn about our events.
The Wisconsin River Trail Organization and its many supportive partners, collaborate and envision a pristine, unique, silent sport, paved, safe recreational trail loop that is supported and maintained by the WRTO and its friends group. This recreational trail will offer peaceful, natural views of rural landscape, which will provide a renewed sense of health and wellness-physically, mentally, and spiritually.
We will preserve the beauty of the Wisconsin River Trails, through the acquisition, development, and maintenance of Trail property for conservation, in order to promote an environment of health and wellness.
Our goal is to create a River Trail in four phases that will allow us to succeed and share the land we love so much with others that may need the quiet solitude of our rural setting. The first phase is to finish our Sanders Creek walking/biking trail to our boat landing in Boscobel. Where our citizens, children, and tourists will be able to walk or bike to the boat landing safely, viewing our natural habitat of eagle’s nests and turtle habitats as they travel. The second phase consists of creating a hiking trail that leads from Boscobel toward Woodman following, in areas, the railroad tracks. Phase three, which is our biggest feat and the most exciting segment of our trail, will allow walkers/bikers to cross over the Wisconsin River in an area that boasts country and river scenery that allows for peaceful, one-of-a-kind views of nature that can only be seen by boat. The last phase will consist of being the trail full circle from Wauzeka back to Boscobel along the Highway 60 path that follows the Wisconsin River. For more information see Mission and Goals
