Baraboo Riverwalk Description

The Baraboo Riverwalk occupies nearly 3 miles of the Baraboo River's east bank. The shared use path brings residents to nature not just by bringing them closer to the river, but also by threading through a series of city parks; at each park, there are benches overlooking the river. The trail begins by running through a wooded riverside corridor in Oschner Park. The trail opens up in Lower Oschner Park, which features an open grassy field for passive and active recreation. There is a short gap between Lower Oschner Park and the next park, but you can use 2nd and Ridge Streets to close it. 

At the Mary Rountree Evans, the trail maintains its route following close to the river, shaded by trees until it reaches Broadway Park. It continues west, under Broadway Street, into Riverwalk Park before concluding at Water Street. 

The Baraboo River walk is a segment of the cross-state Ice Age National Scenic Trail. 

Parking and Trail Access

Lower Oschner Park has ample parking (820 2nd Ave). You can also find parking at Mary Rountree Evans Park (2nd Avenue and Park Street, Baraboo)

Nice but very short

If you're going to Baraboo for Circus World, don't miss this short, beautiful trail along the river. There are parks on either end. You have to ride on sidewalks near the downtown area & past CW. I stretched it out to 13 miles by going on city streets & doubling back for a ways.

If you need a break from the waterparks at the Dells this is a short drive on 4 lane road. I read the book "Ringlingville" and this trip made it come alive. This is probably not a "destination" trail but worth it if you're in the area.

Was pleasantly surprised by this beautiful trail! Very walkable took our dog Blue and my wife who was in a wheelchair at the time. Massive cotton wood trees line most the trail with plenty of benches to relax and enjoy the views of the river.
