Take These Trails Along Former Wisconsin Railroad Lines For An Unforgettable Experience

Earlier this week we told you about the oldest rail trail in the county that’s located in western Wisconsin, but Wisconsin actually has a rather extensive rail trail network.

And now a trail conservancy group is working to connect many of the trails to create a network of trails that would reach more than 500 miles.

The whole thing is a work in progress, but it’s not too far fetched to imagine a network of trails that stretch south from Sheboygan down to Chicago and west to Madison and even all the way to Minneapolis. The project would connect rails in seven counties – Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Walworth, Washington and Waukesha.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
