This 34-mile rail trail skirts the western edge of the vast Horicon Marsh, a National Wildlife Refuge and world-famous home to over 250 migrant bird species. The Wild Goose State Trail was Wisconsin’s first “cooperative” State trail and is maintained and operated by Dodge and Fond du Lac counties.  The trail runs from State Highway 60 in Clyman Junction to the city of Fond du Lac, passing by several small communities.
