Landowner Rights & Trail User Responsibilities

The Waskahegan Trail is a unique resource that exists only because of the generosity of landowners. Before you set foot on the trail:

  1. Know the landowner rights and the trail user responsibilities.
  2. Check the trail conditions

Kopp Lake Ready for Hiking

After dragging the cart full of wood more than half this section of trail, we were able to bridge over a mucky bog, a huge improvement. Growth was high with an increase in thistle and weeds over other years. A lot of signage was replaced, hose put over barb wire stile crossings, much clipping, mowing making a huge difference and the chain saw worked hard. We have a park like path in the woods, by a lake for all to enjoy! kopp-l-june-15-15kopp-l-jun-15-5

Great effort by all volunteers!

At some point we will replace the stile at A35 and the bridge near there too.

Work begins at Kopp Lake

We have been out today clearing the Kopp Lake section of the trail going in half way from A34 to the beaver dam. The fallen trees were many and big.

See MEN vs TREE pictures below and find out the answer to who won by coming on the hike Sunday September 18th!

The growth was wild, wet & weedy! We also hauled wood part way in the direction of a wet bog we hope to bridge over next week. A great day for working in the woods with industrious volunteers!
