Sauk Rail Trail

The Sauk Rail Trail begins and ends at two beautiful state parks, Swan Lake State Park and Blackhawk State Park, both of which contain lakes with many recreational activities. Its 33 miles consist of natural prairies, wetlands, farmland and timber areas and is mostly built on abandoned rail bed. The 13-mile mid-section of the trail from Maple River to Carnarvon follows a valley floor. The trail surface is concrete and limestone from Maple River to Carnarvon, and concrete from Carnarvon to Lake View.
