Stower Seven Lakes State Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Stower Seven Lakes State Trail runs for nearly 14 miles along an old railroad corridor between Amery and Dresser, passing through the towns of Deronda, Wanderoos and Nye. In Amery, the trail begins at Harriman Avenue, heading west. If you head east, you'll be on the Cattail State Trail (which allows motorized vehicles).

The trail is mostly rural, passing among wetlands and lakes and among farms and remnants of prairie, with lots of wildlife. A state trail pass is required for cyclists and cross-county skiers.

Parking and Trail Access

In Amery, park at the eastern trailhead between Harriman Avenue and Keller Avenue. On-street parking is available in Wanderoos and Dresser and there's a parking lot at Lotus Lake County Park, just east of the trail along 90th Avenue.


A lot of sun, a lot of wildlife!

Did about 14 miles (7 in 7 back) of this trail but there is little cover from the sun. There is little in the way of pit stops on this first part of the trail from Dresser on. Bring plenty to drink! Otherwise you see a ton of wildlife and it is worth more

Great wildlife, not so great surface

In May 2015 a friend and I rode the Trail from Dresser to Amery and back. It had rained the night before, although May has been dry here. At least half the trail was mushy and slow going, especially between mileposts 8 and 9. Informational signs along more

We rode the Stower Seven Lakes trail on a cool October morning. Very beautiful scenery passing through wooded areas, wet lands and lakes. The fall colors were at peak! Easy to access and park at the trailhead in Amery. read more
