Regional Trails

The Wiouwash State Trail has two separate sections of unpaved trails located in Western Wisconsin. The northern section is 19 miles long and spans between Birnamwood and Split Rock. The southern section is 22 miles long and spans between Hortonville and Oshkosh. There is a gap of over 30 miles between the two sections of the trail.

The northern section of the Wiouwash State Trail is remote and travels through miles of hardwood forest, past farmland and through several rural communities. The trail was constructed along an abandoned railroad right-of-way and has long sweeping curves and gentle grades.


The Wiouwash State Trail is unpaved with a surface of crushed limestone. There are a few gaps in the trail where trail users will need to use local roads to get to the next section. The trail is open for bike riding, running and walking. Snowmobiles are permitted during winter months.


The Wiouwash State Trail goes past the following communities: Birnamwood, Eland, Wittenburg, Tigerton and Split Rock.
