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.

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

Great trail. Crushed gravel, scenic woods and wetlands, minimal grade (basically flat). Great for pleasure riders and kids. I,m 64 and ride a tadpole trike and it is perfect for me. read more

Non-motorized, nicely maintained packed limestone surface trail. A few wayside signs. Goes past 7 small lakes. 2-3 new toilet facilities and water fountains, by parking areas. Mostly shady and wooded, some open areas. We live on the trail in summer and more
