0ne of the trails through Copper Falls State Park in northeastern Wisconsin is named for the Doughboys who were the first to build trails and bridges through the park when they returned from WW1. Further work was done on the Doughboy Trail in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps.

I have hiked those trails to get back to the falls each summer for most of my life and had been avoiding visiting there because I knew I was no longer able to do the hiking and climbing that the trails required.

I was quite pleased during my most recent visit to find handicap trails that allowed me to go quite a distance along the tiver and enjoy much of it's beauty.
