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 is in the process of pursuing an excellent grant opportunity. The Recreational Trails Grant (RTG) is a state grant to encourage the local building of trails for a wide range of outdoor activities. This $10K grant requires trails organizations like RASTA to match funds, which is to say RASTA needs to raise $10K in order to double our money with the RTG.
RASTA will use these funds to hire a trail building firm to create a significant amount of new trails at the Washburn Lake Silent Sports Trails Area. This would dramatically increase our trail building accomplishments. Of course, RASTA will continue to build trails with our member volunteers and our current resources.
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! Northwoods silent sports thank you!
