Welcome To Our Trailhead!

Rhinelander Area Silent Trails Association is dedicated to creating and maintaining silent   sports trails in the Rhinelander area of northern Wisconsin. Our membership is made up of a wide variety of Northwoods sports enthusiasts including mountain bikers, xc skiers, hikers and snowshoers. Trail-wise, our primary focus is on the Washburn/Perch Lake trail network west of Rhinelander and the Mud Lake trails north of town. The full story of RASTA – our brochure

Calling All Supporters of Northwoods Silent Sports Trails!
RASTA was granted a $10,000 Recreational Trails Grant from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to reroute unsustainable portions of the single track mountain bike trails at the Washburn Silent Sports Area.  RASTA wrote the grant application on behalf of the Oneida County Forestry Department and will be responsible for its implementation

The RTG requires a 50% match so we are currently looking for donations totaling $10,000 to use the entire grant.  RASTA will use these funds to hire a trail building firm to reroute the unsustainable sections of trail and create an additional 2 miles of single track mountain bike trails.

We are well on our way to meeting our $10K, but we need YOUR support to make this dream a reality.  Please contact Brian Hegge and pledge your support!
