The Tomah Recreation Trail winds along the northern edge of downtown Tomah between Buckley Park and Lake Tomah. Currently the trail is composed of two unconnected segments.
The shorter, southeast section runs between Buckley Park and E Washington Street. Starting at Buckley Park on E Holton Street, the trail follows the Council Creek as it heads north through Fireman's Park to E Washington Street. Fireman's Park has a playground and restrooms, Veteran's Park has a playground, and Buckley Park includes Tomah's seasonal public pool.
The longer, northeast section of the trail picks up by Veterans Park and the Tomah Dog Park. Heading south and skirting downtown, the trail continues to follow the creek as it zigzags through fields and woods until it reaches Lake Tomah. The trail runs along the eastern shore of the lake, offering scenic views of the water and the surrounding landscape. Ending just before Winnebago Park (1020 Brandon St), this multiuse trail provides a scenic route for recreation and an off-road connection for commuting.
The multiuse trail surface is paved with concrete or asphalt depending on the area, and the trail surface is wide, smooth, and accessible. There are pedestrian bridges when the route occasionally crosses over the creek.
Parking is available at a number of locations along the trail. Visit the TrailLink map for all options and detailed directions. Locations include the trail's southern endpoint next to Lake Tomah and at Fireman's Park.
