Wisconsin Trail Report


In a collaborative effort with Travel Wisconsin​, the Office of Outdoor Recreation launched the Wisconsin Trail Report. A comprehensive solution that provides a tool for destinations and outdoorists, the Wisconsin Trail Report showcases the state's vast trail offerings by bringing together a collection of trail networks all across the state and from a range of land managers including the Wisconsin State Park System, various county and municipal parks, as well as private or nonprofit organizations like nature centers. In one visit to the Wisconsin Trail Report, outdoorists can discover where to go and understand current conditions to prepare for a great day on the trails. 


Using the Wisconsin Trail Report

Utilize this resource to share the knowledge of Wisconsin's trail offerings with your customers, clients, and friends. The map-based report provides general conditions for hiking and biking trail networks, a brief description and photos of the terrain and facilities, as well as the current weather forecast for the area, nearby activities, attractions, dining, lodging. Each report also links to an external partner website where users can find more information about the trail network.​ ​

Becoming a Trail Reporter

The Wisconsin Trail Report is made possible by dozens of volunteer reporters who are a mix of hiking and biking enthusiasts, members of clubs or friends groups, land managers, and destination marketing organizations​.
