Holmen, Wisconsin29 contributions14 helpful votes
Beautiful and little known attraction. An old hwy between Holmen and Trempealeau WI used years ago is now a trail with seven iron bridges that crosses the Black river bottoms. Easy flat walk as far as you want to go. Every season is great, but don't forget the mosquito dope if you visit in the summer. Well maintained and signage to let you know distances and parking. We live closeby and take our dog for walks there and he loves it. Can't think of a negative about it.

The wildlife area has a walking trail that is named either McGilvray Road for an early settler to the area or the Seven Bridges Road due to the seven bridges that are on the trail. Five of the old bridges remain and a sixth was brought in. The trail is straight and for the most part level and offers a grand view of the swampland. The bridges are unique as to their design and history. Prior to the bridges a ferry was used to cross the water-ways. The trail ends at the Black River were bridge number seven used to be. If you go in the summer bug spray is a must otherwise the mosquitos may carry you off into the swamp.
