Tidying the trail

A UWL recreation management class took time to help maintain the trails in Hixon Forest.

Students work to upkeep the local hiking trails

There’s no doubt that one of the best things about living in La Crosse is the access to nature. Each year, hundreds, if not thousands, of UWL students explore the miles of trails in Hixon Forest.

But all of that hiking and biking can really wear the paths down. Because of that, UWL classes, athletic teams and student groups spent time this fall helping clean up and maintain the trails.
