A beautiful lvl 2 trail down on the Wisconsin river that has 3 water crossings, multiple viewing spots and more. 

The Rivers edge trail on the Wisconsin River is one of the most scenic on the Wisconsin River. The name of this trail comes from the trail being nearly as low as the surrounding water. If you look out your side window, you'd swear you were on a boat. It's very rare to see prepared bottom creek crossings over a trail in Wisconsin, and this trail has 3 of them (when there is water flow). Please be ultra careful on this trail and do not go off the trail itself. We've observed side trail damage so please don't add to it.

This is what I think of when I hear Jeep trail. There are 2 different water crossings, one of which was flowing very fast when I went on it. There are a few places with decent mud as well, with amazing views of the wisconsin river. Out of all the trails in this area, this is by far my favorite!

Beautiful area with water crossings, mud holes and downed trees. Best trail of the day. Turn around at the end so you get to try it both directions. Wish there was more like this. Potential to be even better.
