Regional Trails

The Pine River Trail is a 14.3-mile long unpaved pathway that spans between Richland Center and Lone Rock in Southwestern Wisconsin. The trail was constructed along an abandoned railroad right-of-way and has gentle grades and beautiful scenery including 250-foot high river bluffs. The route takes trail users through the community of Richland Center then through the valley. For the most part the trail is located away from the highway and goes past farmland and through low land hardwood forests.

The trail crosses the Pine River and local streams with 15 bridges, including the 241 foot long curved bridge to the south of Twin Bluffs.


The Pine River Trail is mostly unpaved with a surface of crushed limestone, except within the city of Richland Center where the surface is asphalt. The trail is open for bike riding, running and walking. No permit or fee is required. Snowmobiles are allowed during winter.
