Jim Asfoor Trail Description

The Jim Asfoor Trail is a paved hike-and-bike trail within La Crosse's marshlands. The trail is part of the Marsh Trail Network, cluster of paved and unpaved trails occupying the thousand-acre wetland where the La Crosse River meets the Mississippi River. The marsh, which lies in the heart of La Crosse, has long resisted development pressures, although more than half its area has been lost since World War II. Efforts to restore and protect the marsh are ongoing, as are efforts to turn around the image of the low-lying wet areas from hinderance to natural and recreational asset.

The Jim Asfoor Trail is over a mile long, starts on Monitor Street and heads south through the marsh before coming to the meandering La Crosse River. The trail skirts the perimeter of a shopping center and crosses Copeland Avenue, proceeding through the verdant marsh to a bridge over the La Crosse River, just upstream of where that river empties into the Mississippi. The bridge takes users to the Vietnam Veterans Trail, which then connects to Riverside Park, one of the city's most popular recreational areas. That's if you choose to travel west; if you head east, the Vietnam Veterans Trail links up with other trails in the Marsh Network.

The Jim Asfoor Trail is named in memory of a local resident and avid cycling enthusiast.

Parking and Trail Access

There is no dedicated parking for this trail. However, trail users can park at Riverside International Friendship Gardens (345-, 405 E Veterans Memorial Dr, La Crosse)) and then use the Vietnam Veterans Trail to connect to this one.
