Northwest Wisconsin Trails
Pine Line / Price-Taylor Rail Trail
Trail Options: This trail was created from an abandoned railroad right of way. The surface is crushed gravel on the Price County portion (north end) and crushed granite on the Taylor County portion (south end). There are no significant hills on this route.
The actual rail trail is 26.2 miles long, starting on Morner Road in Price County and ending on Allman Street in Medford. Plans are underway to extend the trail into downtown Prentice and Medford. A temporary trailhead can be accessed via town and county roads at Buccaneer Park in Prentice (April 1-November 30 only).
The Price County portion (north end) is surfaced with crushed gravel and Taylor County portion (south end) is surfaced with crushed granite. The northern portion of the trail runs through the terminal moraine left by the Wisconsin glacier 12,000 years ago. Hardwood forests cover the hummocks and hills. Numerous cedar swamps and bogs boast interesting wetland vegetation. The southern half of the trail is typified by picturesque Wisconsin dairy farms. Wildlife is abundant. Numerous active beaver dams can be seen adjacent to the trail.
