|Bridge 13 at Kickapoo Valley Reserve 2016|
of the Kickapoo River on our Driftless 50 Trail Race weekend. Not only did we have trail closures, but also roads were impassable and made it impossible to re-route our runners. For this reason, we were unable to host the Driftless 50 Trail Races this year for the safety of our runners.
Thank you to our runners, volunteers and sponsors who make this event possible every year.

About the Kickapoo Valley ReserveThe Kickapoo Valley Reserve is a breathtaking network of trails, located in La Farge, Wisconsin with the twisting and turning Kickapoo River making it's way through the center. The reserve was saved by local groups and ecological preservation groups in the late 70s when a proposal for the La Farge Dam threatened local residents and farms in the area. The reserve is maintained by staff supported by the State of Wisconsin, but most management of the reserve is financed through educational programs, special events and annual trail/hunting permits.
