1. Old Coach Road Marker
Inscription. The old Coach Road ran from Oshkosh to Stevens Point and connected the towns of Rural and Amherst.

Horses snort, wheels rattle and dust flies. If you were traveling between Oshkosh and Stevens Point during the 1880s, you'd have traveled via the Coach Road. Maybe you stayed at the Coach House, now a private residence located on Rural Road just outside the park. When the railroad came to Waupaca, the stage was abandoned, but you can still imagine this bygone era as you hike and bike along the Coach Road Trail.
