Smith Rapids Saddle Trail

View Website Favorite US Forest Road 148, N14900 Smith Rapids Road - Park Falls, WI 54552
Information: 715-762-2461

Much of this 16-mile equestrian trail follows along the banks of the South Fork of the Flambeau River, which offers open vistas and opportunities to view wildlife. The trail is peaceful, relatively flat, and meanders through several different forest types, including pine plantations. There is parking with trail access near the Smith Rapids Picnic Area which is located near the middle of the Smith Rapids Saddle Trail and offers a day-use area including drinking water, vault toilets, a picnic table, grill, river & stream fishing, and carry-in boat access; no garbage service. It is located near the Smith Rapids Covered Bridge, one of only two covered bridges in Wisconsin. The unique town lattice style bridge spans 90 feet over the South Fork of the Flambeau River.  There is also trail access on the east end of the trail at the boat landing on Round Lake. The very west end of the saddle trail is temporarily not accessible due to the instability of a bridge and river bank.
