Trail opening at Upper Hixon Forest Park

LA CROSSE, Wis.(WXOW) – A sign of Spring! The lower Hixon Forest trails and upper Hixon Forest Park on top of Grandad Bluff are open.

The City of La Crosse Park and Recreation department closed the trails during the spring thaw to protect and preserve the trails.

The trails are maintained by the Outdoor Recreation Alliance (ORA), an all volunteer group of mountain bikers and hikers.

ORA said the trails remain in excellent shape and continue to earn the designation as some of the best-built trails in the Midwest.
