What are we BUILDING :)
The WIKI Mountain Bike Club was formed to oversee the development and construction of over 30 miles of mountain bike, natural surface trails in Willow River and Kinnickinnic State Parks.
WIKI is part of the Friends of Willow River and Kinnickinnic State Parks, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation organized to support and assist the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources with environmental, interpretive, scientific, historical, recreational, and educational activities at Willow River and Kinnickinnic State Parks.
The Club’s mission is to create trails that embody the three components of sustainability:
1. Environmental Sustainability – Will the trail provide for resource protection? This is the definition that is commonly used when referring to what does or does not provide for a sustainable trail.
2. Social Sustainability – This is frequently overlooked in the trail development process. Evidence of the failure to meet desired use rout comes (experiences and associated benefits) are everywhere: overcrowded trails, trails with little use, trail users who feel “pushed out” by other users, and unauthorized routes.
3. Economic Sustainability – Can the land manager and the community bear the long-term costs of maintaining a trail? If it provides a valuable experience, it is likely worth the investment.
By adhering to the principles and strategies established by the Bureau of Land Management and IMBA (International Mountain Bike Association) in their publication, “Guidelines for a Quality Trail Experience”, the Club will succeed in building some of the best mountain bike trails in the Midwest.
This type of development requires a significant amount of time and money and can only be accomplished with the support of the community. Please consider being part of something great by becoming a WIKI Mountain Bike Club member today

You only need to fill out the waiver once every year, you can take a picture of your signed copy and send it via email.
We are going to create a network of mountain bike specific trails. With over 500 accessible acres of land, 100s of vertical feet of contour and support from a fantastic MTB community these trails will be a premier destination.
Both machine and hand built trails will be built at the parks. The mix of flowy and technical trails will offer beginners to advanced riders fun options on the system.
The Goal is to have 25% Green, 50% Blue, 25% Black trails. With a plan to have over 35 total miles between the parks there will be pleanty of riding for everyone :)
We cannot build these trails without the community support. We have a spot to recognize our major contributors.
Kinni Trail Map
The Kinni State Park trails have been designed and platted. There is currently a 3 mile loop (in Green) on this map that will be open to Fat Biking Jan 1, 2021
The Yellow lines are the planed trail expansion for 2021.
Willow Trail Map
The First 14 Miles of Design are complete! On the Map the RED trail is a 2 way double track. GREEN are one way singletrack and the BLACK trails are current hiking trails.
The Purple Highlighted areas are where we will be mapping and creating trails. OVER 600 ACRES!
