Pine River Recreation Trail

Richland County's incredible river bluff country can be hard on a bicyclist's legs. On the Pine River Trail you can take a lazy ride up a lazy river and enjoy bluff scenery without having to ride over it. Along the way you'll cross 15 bridges that span the meandering Pine and its tributaries. One bridge is a whopping 241 feet long. Between Richland Center and Lone Rock you'll be treated to views of green-forested bluffs lining the broad valleys of the Pine and Wisconsin Rivers. The river backwaters are havens for great blue herons, egrets, turtles and other wildlife. Town Parks in Gotham and Lone Rock offer pleasant rest stops. At Fireman's Park, on the south side of Lone Rock, you can swim in a backwater slough of the Wisconsin River.


In Richland Center, the trail starts/ends in Krouskop Park on Hwy. 14 West. In Krouskop Park, there is adequate parking, toilet facilities and drinking water.
