The Gold Star Memorial Trail (GSMT) is an exciting initiative progressing in Dodge County, that will provide an important recreational trail for residents and visitors. It will also serve as a memorial to fallen service members of Dodge County. The trail will stretch from the Beaver Dam to Mayville, traversing approximately 15 miles. The trail will be for non-motorized use, primarily biking and hiking, and will provide opportunities for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter months. The trail connection between the cities of Beaver Dam and Mayville provides important nonmotorized trail links to the Horicon Marsh State Wildlife Area and its world class Education and Visitor Center, the City of Horicon, the Wild Goose State Trail and Nitschke Mounds County Park. Most of the trail will be 10’ wide, asphalt paved and located within highway right of ways separated from vehicle travel lanes. The trail project is broken into 5 phases or segments. Each phase is locally important on their own. However, when combined, they create a significant regional connection between communities. At this time, Phase I from Mayville to the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center is complete. The attached maps provide basic layout and information on each phase.

On The Trails Auto Tours

The glaciers that once covered Dodge County have sculpted a landscape ideal for auto touring. Several scenic overlooks around the Horicon Marsh allow you to view the wetland’s wildlife. Follow the brown signs that mark the route of the Horicon Marsh Parkway, a 50-mile auto tour that encircles the Horicon Marsh and follows state and county highways through Burnett, Kekoskee, Horicon, Mayville and Waupun. The Parkway is easily accessible from U.S. Highway 151 or State Highway 41 by following State Highway 33 to access the south end of the Parkway or Highway 49 to access the north end of the Parkway.

Dodge County welcomes horseback riding on a separate 14-mile pathway along the Wild Goose State Trail between Highway 60 and Pautsch Road (about four miles north of Burnett). Trail terrain is generally easy riding, although special caution is necessary in areas with steep side slopes, wet crossings and near highways and roads. The trail surface is grass, dirt and wood chips and winds through wooded and open areas in the right-of-way of the Wild Goose Trail. Horses are not allowed on the limestonesurfaced trail except at designated horse trail crossings.

Also keep an eye out for the City of Beaver Dam to release water on the Beaver Dam River for recreational paddling. Cotton Mill Park to County Road J, is a section of the Beaver Dam River that begins as an exhilarating urban paddle before quieting down towards the outskirts of town amongst suburban development, then narrowing again and alternating between wooded corridors, farmland and finally to a wider, almost marshy stretch, before the take-out. Add in a quite handsome train bridge, some minor drops and riffles, and you have yourself a great trip if you can catch it at the right levels.

BEAVER DAM


Communities The Northwest portion of Dodge County is anchored by the City of Beaver Dam, which provides residents and visitors a nice blend of urban amenities and convenient access to natural attractions. Beaver Dam’s cultural amenities such as the new community theater are complemented well with its revived downtown area. The Beaver Dam River provides visitors a peaceful natural comfort, while they enjoy the various downtown amenities. To the north of Beaver Dam is the City of Fox Lake, which is located on the lake bearing the communities name. Fox Lake has historically attracted visitors to its waterway features and charming downtown shops and local eateries. Nearby, the City of Waupun is situated on the northern border of Dodge County and also has a lengthy history of cultural contributions that are engrained with ties to the natural features of the region. Waupun is located near the west edge of the Horicon Marsh, which attracts thousands of visitors throughout the year.

Water Recreation Beaver Dam Lake, Fox Lake and nearby Lake Emily provide plenty of fishing, recreational boating, and non-motorized boating opportunities. The lakes are also busy during the winter months, as they are frequented by ice fisherman, snowmobilers, and visitors looking to get exercise by snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. From Memorial Day to the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend, the Beaverland Must-Skis entertain large audiences just off of Tahoe Park on Beaver Dam Lake with their free water ski shows. See their schedule at www.mustskis.com. Fox Lake is known as one of Wisconsin’s top ten fishing lakes and one of the best walleye fisheries in the state. Fishing is a year-round activity on Fox Lake. Anglers pull more than 700,000 fish out of the water every year and there are abundant populations of walleye, northern pike and crappie, along with muskie, bluegill, and large and smallmouth bass.

Derge Park

Wild Goose State Trail

Nitschke Mounds Park

The northwest area of Dodge County is also home to Derge Park. This Dodge County park provides campers a quiet lakeside facility that is situated on the west shoreline of Beaver Dam Lake. This campground is known for its ease of use for visitors that have campers and is a quieter setting. Derge Park has a boat ramp and a handicap canoe/kayak launch that offers visitors easy accessibility to Beaver Dam Lake. Visitors to Derge Park enjoy accessibility to urban conveniences and other visitor opportunities in Randolph, Fox Lake and Beaver Dam.

Adjacent to the west edge of the Horicon Marsh is the Wild Goose State Trail, this 34 mile compacted limestone trail is on an abandoned railroad grade. It traverses oak woodlots, farm fields, prairie remnants and streams as it runs north to south through Dodge and Fond Du Lac counties. The trail does accommodate a separate horse trail, stretching 14 miles. In the winter the trail can be utilized for snowmobile and ATV use.

Adjacent to the Wild Goose State Trail and west of the Horicon Marsh is the Nitschke Mounds Park. This park contains 39 preserved animal effigy, conical, and linear mounds. A wood chipped trail along with interpretive signs provide visitors an educated experience to the mounds and the history behind them.

They are one of the best kept secrets in Dodge County. In addition to the waterways running through this region, two wildlife areas have been established, the Mud Lake Wildlife Area and Waterloo Wildlife Areas. These two public areas provide great opportunities for nature enthusiast, as there are acres and acres of natural area to explore. There are also many fishing and hunting opportunities.

Experience The Horicon Marsh Area Get outdoors this year and experience the wildlife and many seasons of natural beauty at Horicon Marsh. The Horicon Marsh Parkway is a 50-mile auto tour route that follows state and county roadways around the marsh, passing through or near many local communities. There are also roads, hiking and biking trails throughout the property, and a canoe trail accessing the waters of the marsh.

Spring marks the return of mallard ducks,

coots, herons, egrets, sandhill cranes, purple martins, warblers, and numerous others. A “chorus” of frogs is sure to be heard throughout the marsh signaling that warmer weather is here. The Horicon Marsh Bird Festival is held annually in May and offers many opportunities to view and photograph spring migrants and resident wildlife.

Fall is well known for the mass migration of birds (and visitors!) to the marsh - Canada geese, as well as thousands of ducks of many different species – mallards, wood ducks, pintails, wigeon, redheads, bufflehead, and ruddy ducks; as well as impressive numbers of staging sandhill cranes. Opportunities also exist to view whooping cranes. Although closed for waterfowl hunting, the Horicon National Wildlife Refuge is open for deer and small game hunting seasons in the fall. However there is waterfowl hunting in the State Wildlife Area. Many educational programs and events are held marsh-wide throughout the season. Winter is characterized as a frozen but peaceful time on the marsh and is also a good season for wildlife viewing. Eagles, owls, several species of hawks, muskrats, foxes and other wildlife, or evidence of, such as tracks or feathers, may be sighted when the entire marsh is open to snowshoeing, hiking, and cross country skiing (Dec. - Mar.). Snowy owls are a notable species to watch for during the winter months.

Summer brings nesting season

and warmer weather for hiking and bicycling around the marsh to view an array of bird species with their young. American white pelicans nest abundantly on the marsh during the summer and may be seen feeding in large groups – “herding” fish into shallower water for easier dining. Several fishing piers are also available at the marsh and make great places to spend relaxing summer afternoons.

Education & Visitor Center

The Wildlife Education Program focuses on the abundant wildlife resources of the marsh, their ecology and management. DNR educators rely on the diverse wildlife to develop a wide range of educational programs aimed at introducing and sharing our native wildlife with a broad audience. Horicon Marsh Education & Visitor Center serves as both a destination and gateway for visitors to Horicon Marsh as well as providing for year-round educational opportunities. More than 500,000 people visit Horicon Marsh annually to observe wildlife in a natural setting, creating a huge demand for interpretive services. The facility has an auditorium, two classrooms, the Flyway Gift Shop, public viewing area, wildlife displays, a Children’s Discovery Area and other building amenities. Visitors may borrow binoculars, field guides, educational backpacks and snowshoes at no cost.

Visit the “Explorium”, where you will have the opportunity to travel through

time. Long before Horicon Marsh achieved international status as an important bird and wildlife area and a destination for outdoor recreation, glaciers carved a basin where a wetland would one day form. Today, guests of Horicon Marsh’s “Explorium” can get a glimpse of life at Horicon Marsh thousands of years before European settlement and witness how the current wetland came to be. Videos and interactive displays greet guests at every turn, encouraging audiences of any age to learn more about the history and ecology of Horicon Marsh. A wooly mammoth replica that children are free to touch and climb represents wildlife that roamed the land during the Ice Age. Relics from the age of European settlement as well as modern hunting and trapping equipment illustrate the marsh’s popularity as a waterfowl hunting site. Games encourage visitors to learn about wildlife identification. An airboat simulator gives visitors a thrilling perspective on the management and conservation activities currently occurring on the marsh before heading out to enjoy it for themselves.
