Some State Trails Closed To July 4th Hikers

7/3/17 – Fourth of July visitors to far southern Wisconsin cannot hike or bike on several state trails, due to flooding and other storm damage from last week. All trails at Wyalusing State Park near Prairie du Chien will be closed at least through Tuesday’s holiday — and the DNR says they’ll reopen when debris can be cleared. Also, the Sugar River trail from New Glarus to Brodhead is closed until further notice — and the southern portion of the Badger Trail from near Monticello to south of Monroe will be shut down until July 10th after two tornadoes hit the area. The DNR also says the White Oak Trail at Lake Kegonsa, south of Madison, has fallen trees and will stay shut at least until July 10th.
