It was named after conservationist and influential University of Wisconsin professor Aldo Leopold. The trail system was created on November 20, 2007 when Governor Jim Doyle signed Senate Bill 161, and dedicated on June 4, 2009.[2][3]

The trails have features that enable users to learn about the surrounding ecosystems and environments.[4]
