With over 379 acres of land and ten miles of meandering trails, wild Wisconsin is closer than you imagine. Lose yourself in one of the most beautifully restored natural sanctuaries in southeastern Wisconsin. With prairies, woods, ponds, and over one mile of Milwaukee River shoreline, you’ll always have something new to explore at Riveredge.
To be most efficient with our resources, our visitor center and nature store have reduced hours in the winter:
All Weekdays: 8 AM to 4:30 PM
December: Open Saturday 9 AM to 4 PM, closed Sundays
January and February: Closed Saturdays and Sundays (except for pop-up hours- see Calendar of Events for specific weekend updates)
Our trails, however, are open every day from dawn to dusk! We don’t believe exploration and adventure needs a schedule!
In order to assure trail quality and maintenance, there is a daily trail fee for non-members. Members cover this cost and hike/ski year ‘round with their annual membership dues (and get much, much more). The current fees for Non-Members are:
- Adults: $4.00
- Children ages 4—13: $2.00
- Children 3 & Under: Free
- Family: $12.00
All non-member trail users (hikers, skiers, and snowshoers) should purchase a trail pass at the visitor center or by using our pay envelopes found at the front door to the visitor center and at trailheads. The passes can be returned within one week for a rebate of up to $12 on the membership price
