New trail opens near Chad Erickson Memorial Park in La Crosse

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - A new recreational opportunity in our area is open in La Crosse.

A ribbon cutting was held Friday for the Chad Erikson Connector Trail.

The nearly half mile trail connects Chad Erikson Memorial Park to State Road Elementary School.

La Crosse Parks and Recreation officials hope the trail draws attention to area recreational opportunities.

"I think it is good exposure for this park in itself, to I know Trane uses it, I know that State Road [Elementary] uses it as well, but that trail just really connects it and brings it all together, into the  community," Tracy Rudi, Recreation Coordinator with the City of La Crosse.

The new trail is paved, ADA accessible and can be used in all weather conditions.
