The Omaha Trail is nestled in Juneau County, not far from the Elroy-Sparta trail. It is a 12.5 mile trail that passes through iconic sandstone formations before arriving at the trail’s 875-foot-long tunnel. Unfortunately, the Omaha Trail has received less attention than the Elroy-Sparta – resulting in less funding for its maintenance. Since the trail was paved in the mid-80s, it has yet to see paving maintenance. Advocates for the Omaha Trail have not applied for TAP funding for its maintenance due to concerns about the community’s ability to raise the required local matching funds.
