The WIOUWASH trail runs on an abandoned railroad corridor and is 21.8 miles long.

Mascoutin Valley State Trail is 5.3 miles long.

Both trails have beautiful scenery for activities such as walking, hiking, biking, and horseback riding in the summer months with cross country skiing and snowmobiling in the winter months.

What are rails to trails?

Rails to Trails Program

A rail trail is the conversion of a disused railway into a multi-use path, typically for walking, cycling and sometimes horse riding. The characteristics of abandoned railways—flat, long, frequently running through historical areas—are appealing for various developments.


General Trail Etiquette

*Treat all trail users with respect and courtesy regardless of their sport, speed or skill level

*Stay to the right and pass on the left. Anticipate other trail users around corners or in blind spots.

*Stay on the trail. Do not use shortcuts.

*Learn to use appropriate hand signals.

*Respect trail closures. Obey posted signs and travel only on trails that are open.

*Carry out all litter, including all pet waste.

*Yield to horseback riders. When encountering a horse, speak in a calm, pleasant tone so the horse hears a human voice. Expect the rider to advise you, as they know the horse best.

*Dogs must be kept on a maximum 8ft leash at all times on the trails.

*Leave flowers and plants for others to enjoy. Do not pull bark off of trees.
