10,000 Steps Route: RICHARD BONG STATE RECREATION AREA

Located just west of I-94, Richard Bong State Recreation Area was a planned Air Force base in the 1950s and was converted to a nature area by the early 1980s. This unique park boasts more than 4,500 acres of nature areas, campsites, trails, and more. “Bong”, for short, is a great place for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and hiking, too — so options for logging miles are endless. This state recreation area offers nine mapped trails for different uses. The Yellow Trail is a generally level route with a nice mixture of grassland, woodland, and wetland. It is also a great trail for bird watching!

Distance: 4.4 miles (circle route) | View Map>

Complete your steps: Add on a quick cool-down lap around the Gray Trail, which is relatively flat with no steep grading, to hit your daily target.

Alternate Route: The Red Trail is the longest trail in the park and offers an overview of what the landscape looked like before being altered for the planned Air Force base.
