The Tuscobia Trail from Winter to Park Falls has been closed by trees blown onto the trail by strong winds from a thunderstorm in northern Wisconsin early Monday morning.
A crew from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is is cutting away the obstacles and clearing the trail.
Trail manager Kathy Pospychalla, who is part of that crew, said she believes they will have the trail open Thursday.
The 74-mile Tuscobia State Trail is one of the longest in Wisconsin to be converted from a rail corridor. It runs from Park Falls west to a junction with the Wild Rivers State Trail just north of Rice Lake. It cuts through parts of Barron, Washburn, Sawyer and Price counties, passing through part of the Flambeau river State Forest and the rugged terrain of Wisconsin’s Blue Hills.
