Flyway Trail Winona Connector


The new Flyway Trail Winona Connector is perfect for walking and bicycling and includes use of the Highway 54 Interstate Bridge and the John A. Latsch Historical Wagon Bridge as well as the new 842-foot bridge over the Burlington-Northern Santa Fe railroad. Watching train traffic from above is a must-see for kids and adults alike. The total distance from the wagon bridge on Latsch Island in Winona to WI-Hwy 35 is just over 1 mile, one way.

After years of planning and fundraising, a non-motorized connector bridge/trail from Winona to The Flyway Trail in Wisconsin opened in June 2020. This new connection links Winona to this scenic biking route via Aghaming Park, where one can see 1,950 acres of some of the best preserved floodplain forest in the country, and catch amazing views of Latsch Island’s unique boathouse community.

The project has been spearheaded by a community driven start up based in Alma, WI, The Flyway Trail, which aims to build a world class trail in the region. According to their website, their mission is, “to increase community connectivity, support economic development and recreational tourism, and enhance the quality of life for future generations.”
