LOWER YAHARA TRAIL


Dane County Parks has been planning in coordination with bicycle stakeholders, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Wisconsin and Southern Railroad Company, Wisconsin Department of Transportation, the Village of McFarland, City of Madison, City of Monona, the Wisconsin Historical Society, GRAEF, KJohnson Engineers, Great Lakes Archaeological Research Center and the Army Corps of Engineers since 2008 to design a multi use bicycle trail that will extend approximately 2 miles from the Capital City Trail at Lake Farm County Park to McDaniel Park in the Village of McFarland. The initial phase of the trail is anticipated to start construction during the summer of 2015.


Future phases of the trail are envisioned to eventually extend south to the City of Stoughton, including through portions of the Town of Pleasant Springs. One of the next priorities that is partially within the Town will be to connect Fish Camp County Park with Lake Kegonsa State Park. This section of trail would include significant boardwalking along existing berms and a clear span bridge over Door Creek. The Lower Yahara River Trail will be developed and maintained by Dane County, it may also become part of the State Trail network in the future. Dane County is currently seeking potential partners to help fund design of this next phase, and hoping planning can start in the next 2-3 years. For further information about the Lower Yahara River Trail, contact Chris James, Dane County Parks Planner, 608-224-3763, or by email at james@countyofdane.com .
