Trail Map

Scotch Creek Woodland Preserve/ Edgar Area Trail Supporters (EATS)

Access can be gained by the Edgar School District and at the corner of East Beech St and Wisconsin Avenue.


Within a stone's throw of Village streets, you can explore miles of hardwood, pine, and hemlock stands along the Edgar Area Trail System.  Since the 1970s, the nature trail in the Edgar School Forest has provided year-round recreation with cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in winter and walking, jogging, hiking, and mountain biking in warmer months.  The area is also known for its spectacular bird-watching year round.  A fitness course with seven different work-out stations has been added near the entrance to the trails located by the tennis courts.
