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.
