THE STORY:

 

Let's Build a Great Sauk State Trail! With your help the trail will extend from the Wisconsin River in Sauk City to Devil's Lake State Park. The Friends of the Great Sauk State Trail was established in 2015 as a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, with a mission to enhance, promote, manage and advocate for the continued development of the Great Sauk Trail, a nearly 13 mile multi-use trail connecting the Sauk Prairie community to Devil's Lake State Park, Wisconsin’s most visited state park.

To make the trail the world-class attraction it should be, the friends group aims to raise $1.5 million to construct Phase 2 to Devil's Lake. The friends group is also charged with enhancing the trail by installing signs, art, benches, and other amenities to make the trail experience safe, educational, and – most importantly – unforgettable. 

To pursue this mission, the Friends of the Great Sauk Trail depend on contributions from people like you. Consider making a tax-deductible donation today.
