Stower Seven Lakes State Trail

Stower Seven Lakes State Trail is named to recognize the exceptional natural resources the trail traverses and the longtime public service and leadership demonstrated by Harvey and Marilyn Stower of Amery. Harvey Stower served in the Wisconsin Legislature and as Mayor of Amery for many years. Camping and hiking opportunities are available nearby at Interstate State Park.

The trail may bring a number of different users to the trail at the same time. It is important to use good trail etiquette to ensure the enjoyment and safety of all trail users.

All-terrain vehicles, snowmobiles and other motorized vehicles are prohibited on the trail. The Cattail State Trail, which begins in Amery just east of Highway 46 at Center Street, is open to motorized vehicles.
