Norwegian Ridge Birding and Nature Trails

Grand Opening of Sugar Maple Loop

The opening of the Sugar Maple Trail addision was held on Mother's Day on May 10. It was great success and fun was had by all who attended. There were over 50 at the ribbon opening and over 75 were served breakfast at the sugar shack. Thank you to Tom Overlie, from KTTC News, for cutting our ribbon.


Open all year, hike in the summer and snowshoe in the winter. The main trail includes a 1, 2, or newly developed 3.5 mile option that starts and ends at the trail head between Red's Hometown Market and the Spring Grove Gundersen Clinic. Trail maps can be found at the trail head and a large map is found about 300 yards into the trail.
