Wild Rivers State Trail

Wild Rivers State Trail

The Wild Rivers Trail (North of Rice Lake 9.3 miles of trails) is a 104-mile trail that traverses three counties in northwestern Wisconsin; intersects with the Tuscobia State Trail leading 74 miles east to Park Falls, Wisconsinand provides connections to hundreds of miles of snowmobile and ATV trails.

Wild Rivers State Trail (formerly Wild Rivers State Recreation Trail) stretches 104 miles through Douglas; surfaced with highway grade compacted gravel in Barron and Washburn counties and with rough railroad ballast in Douglas County, allowing for the trail to be open year-round to a wide-variety of uses.

The trail, following a former railroad corridor, begins just south of Superior, and passes through the communities of Solon Springs, Gordon, Minong, Trego, Spooner and Haugen, ending in Rice Lake. The area surrounding the Wild Rivers trail is rich in natural resources and wildlife habitat. The trail crosses numerous rivers and streams, including the Namekagon River, which is part of the St. Croix National Scenic Riverway.

Awarded by the Coalition for Recreation Trails. Hike, horseback riding, mountain bike, snowmobile.
