Jefferson County Parks Department

In 2021, the Jefferson County Parks Department operates 22 parks on 1,180 acres throughout the County, over 19 miles of hiking trails, 35 miles of off and on-road bicycle/pedestrian trails along the Glacial River Trail and Interurban Trail, and 199 miles of snowmobile trails.  A variety of outdoor activities from hiking, picnicking, bicycle riding, rustic camping, a large dog park, mountain biking, historic sites, frisbee golf, boating, fishing, enjoying nature, and snowmobiling draws park users from throughout the County and beyond.

We also promote public awareness of the Parks System, and advocate for the community health and environmental benefits of outdoor recreation, exercise, and family activities while protecting important natural areas and water bodies.  We hope you take time today to exercise your body and mind on our plentiful trails, parks, and natural areas.
