Survey on nonmotorized trails open

The public has an opportunity to comment on how they use nonmotorized trails in Wisconsin and what can be done to improve nonmotorized trail opportunities through an online survey available through the end of the year.

The Nonmotorized Recreation and Transportation Trails Council was established by Wisconsin statute in 2010 to provide advice and consultation to the legislature, governor, Department of Natural Resources and Department of Transportation on all matters related to nonmotorized recreation and transportation trails, including trail planning, acquisition, development, maintenance and management.

The council is seeking to gather up-to-date information about the state of nonmotorized trails in Wisconsin from individuals who use nonmotorized trails as well as groups, organizations and municipal and government agencies that develop and manage trails. The survey will gather comments on how people are currently using trails across the state, how often they use them, the type of trails they prefer, what additional trail opportunities they would like to see, and what can be done to make trails safer and more accessible.

“Wisconsin was the birthplace of the rail-trail movement and is enriched by having the Ice Age and North Country National Scenic Trails as well as several other nationally recognized trails built and maintained by thousands of tireless volunteers,” said Joel Patenaude, a council member representing Wisconsin tourism interests and editor of Silent Sports magazine. “Wisconsin is also home to the Birkie Trail, which hosts North America’s largest cross-country ski marathon, and the country’s most popular mountain biking race series takes place in Wisconsin because of an abundance of flowing and fun singletrack.”

The survey is designed to gather information about a wide variety of trail uses including hiking, bicycling, skiing, horseback riding and even canoeing and kayaking on water trails.

People can find a link to the survey by searching the DNR website for keyword “parks” and then clicking on the link for “Nonmotorized trail council” under the tab for “Stay connected.” People can also learn more about the council its Facebook page: or by contacting the council through email at
