Connecting Sauk Prairie to Devil's Lake State Park
GREAT SAUK STATE TRAIL
Construction of the Great Sauk State Trail began in 2017. The trail utilizes part of a former railroad right-of-way transferred from Union Pacific to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
A trail pass is required for all bikers and roller bladers, 16 years of age and older. The trail pass fee is $5 / day or $25 / year. Trail passes can be purchased at the trail (near the Ruth Culver Library) or at the Sauk Prairie Chamber of Commerce, Prairie du Sac Village Hall, Sauk County Clerk's Office and the Sauk County Parks and Recreation Office.
Currently, parking to access the Great Sauk State Trail is available at the intersection of Water Street and Washington Street, next to Ruth Culver Library. There is no fee to park here.
A portion of the proceeds from permits purchased at the local vendors listed above or at the trail will directly benefit the Great Sauk State Trail.
