The Stower Seven Lakes State Trail is built on a former 14 mile trail railroad corridor,beginning in Amery, Wi. at Harriman Avenue, traveling through the communities of Deronda, Wanderoos and Nye, ending about one mile from Dresser at 90th Avenue. The trail passes through maple and oak forests, wetlands, prairies and farmlands, and past many picturesque lakes. The trail crosses between the North Twin and South Twin lakes in Amery, skirts the south end of Bear Trap Lake, the north end of Kinney lake, and runs along Dwight, Horse and Lotus lakes near the western end.
The trail is named to recognize the exceptional natural resources the trail traverses and the longtime public service and leadership demonstrated by Harvey and Marilyn Stower of Amery. Harvey Stower served in the Wisconsin Legislature and as Mayor of Amery for many years.
