Root River Trail System

This website is provided by Root River Trail Towns, Inc. as a service to users of our great trail system. We're a volunteer-based, non-profit organization dedicated to telling everyone about one of the finest mult-use trail systems in the country.

We're pleased that you have stopped by to explore our scenic corner of the world and hope you will visit us often.

Whether you are planning a first-time visit or have visited often, please feel welcome. This site is designed to show all of our trail towns, provide photos, and list a directory of merchants and services in each town.
