The proposed Pelican Path Trail will be a 5 mile, paved, non-motorized, multi-use trail from Hustisford, Wisconsin to the Wild Goose Trail southern trailhead on highway 60. It will connect to the elementary school, high school, library, downtown, and Neider Park in Hustisford. This new trail will give over 1100 village residents and over 500 Lake Sinissippi residents access to Wisconsin's trail network.

Report prepared by MSA Professional Services of Beaver Dam 

Project Planning, Preparation, and Local Support

This project is documented in the Summary Report: Design Hustisford Team ​which was developed by UW-Extension in collaboration with PATH of Hustisford, the Town of Hubbard, Town of Hustisford, and the Village of Hustisford. In addition, the project has received over 30 letters of support from legislators, business, and local political organizations. It also integrates with other PATH initiatives to increase economic development in the Hustisford area.
 

Project Utility and Connectivity

This project serves a utilitarian purpose, rather than a purely recreational purpose. It will connect to Neider park, the Hustisford elementary and high schools, the library, and downtown area. Area students will be able to safely bike or walk to school. In addition, it will give local residents access to Juneau via the Wild Goose State Trail. Also, once the Gold Star Memorial Trail is completed, this trail will give residents access to Beaver Dam, Horicon, and Mayville.​
 

Project Benefit: Environmental, Livability, Economic Justice, Public Health, Safety

This project increases the likelihood of residents shifting from car travel to biking and walking. In addition, it increases residents' access to the natural environment in the Horicon Marsh via the Pelican Path and Wild Goose State Trail. Also, it addresses lack of trail access to rural communities such as Hustisford (1,100 residents).​
 

History of Sponsor Success and Deliverability

The project is overseen by both PATH of Hustisford and The Friends of Dodge County Parks. The Friends have seen the successful completion of the Wild Goose State Trail, Glacial River Trail, and are currently in the implementation phase of the Gold Star Memorial Trail with over 2 miles of asphalt completed out of 15 miles total. This track record of success will translate to the Pelican Path as well. ​
