From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The White River State Trail is a 19-mile state designated rail trail in Racine and Walworth Counties in Wisconsin.


The trail follows a former rail corridor between Elkhorn, Wisconsin and Dover, Wisconsin. [1] The trail begins at County Highway H in Elkhorn, Wisconsin ( 42°39′36″N 88°31′19″W / 42.66000°N 88.52194°W / 42.66000; -88.52194), and travels east to Vandenboom Road in Dover, Wisconsin ( 42°40′51″N 88°07′47″W / 42.68083°N 88.12972°W / 42.68083; -88.12972). [1] The trail is 19 miles long, with a two-mile gap in Burlington, Wisconsin. The trail is made of crushed limestone. [1]


The trail is open to walkers, joggers, bicyclists in the summer, and snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing in the winter.

The trail is free to walk or run, but a trail pass must be purchased in order to bike the trail, which may be purchased at several self-registration stations along the trail. [2]
