Welcome to The Gays Mills Stump Dodger Trail
This non-motorized trail takes its name from the Stump Dodger, the nickname of the Kickapoo Valley and Northern Railroad which served communities from 1892-1939 along a 52 mile right-of-way from Wauzeka north to Ontario. The trail currently comprises two legs. The South leg is located primarily in the "historic district" of Gays Mills, with one part paved and the other, a grassy stretch on the rail bed itself, weaving through world class wetlands. The North leg begins in the business park, located north of the village off hwy [sic] 131. This segment follows the Kickapoo River through a flood plain of lush vegetation and shares the land with an occasional grazing group of cattle.
