During 2009, a guide to the YT in Wisconsin was published by a regional division of the YT Association. Maps and information about the Trail in Wisconsin is best found in a separate area of the web site. Click here.

In 1918, Wisconsin was the first state (actually, the first government in the world) to establish long-distance highway routes, identify them by number, use the numbers to mark the the state system of roads, AND record those route numbers on road maps. By 1926 most states and many countries had implemented the idea. This type of marking was so well received that, on November 11, 1926, the American Association of State Highway Officials, in conjuction with the Bureau of Public Roads of the United States Department of Agriculture implemented a plan to identify interstate routes and use the same type of numeric identification as Wisconsin had created. These "U.S. routes" traveled on state highways then and now, not on a non-existant federal road system. Many years later, the state highways which constitute the Interstate Highway System were identified with a similar numeric system.

A note about printing the maps (for personal use only): Some maps are too wide to print without losing part of the map when you use the standard page settings of your web browser. So, before you attempt to print a map do the following:
1. Have the map you want to print showing on the monitor. Click on File.
2. Click on Page Setup.
3. Change Orientation from Portrait to Landscape
4. You probably want to reduce the listed margin widths to .5 (1/2 inch) for all four margins.
5. Click OK
