Tuscobia State Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

From Rice Lake to Park Falls, the Tuscobia State Trail travels 74 miles through the Flambeau State Forest and Chequamegon National Forest in northern Wisconsin. Enjoy the rugged wilderness of the Blue Hills from a nearly-level former rail grade. Trail users can hike, mountain bike, snowmobile, use ATVs and visit quaint shops in small villages along the trail.

About mid-trail, plans are underway to restore the Winter Railroad Depot to serve as a trailhead and welcoming center. The building, dating back to 1905, is adjacent to what was once the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway line on which the trail now travels.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at either end of the trail in Rice Lake (west end) and Park Falls (east end). The Park Falls trailhead is located at 15400 Park Lane; restrooms and a picnic area are also available here.

Biked a portion of the trail near Rce Lake, WI. We found the the surface to be mostly mud and vegetation making for a difficult ride. The tree canopy and vegetation was nice. Rode a total of 20 miles. read more
