Mountain-Bay State Trail

Weston Trailhead - 10.4.2017

October, 2017 by kathleen.esqueda

Walked 2 miles in from the Weston trailhead. Trail in excellent shape. This section of the trail runs parallel to a very busy, noisy road on one side and the backyards of homes on the other. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful walk in the woods this is not it. If you don’t mind the noise and walking closely past houses and businesses it might work for you. Giving at least two stars for the great trail condition; however, this section of the trail was not what I personally had hoped it would be.

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Shawano County portion needs work

August, 2017 by donsenzig

These comments apply to the trail between Green Bay and Eland. The trail between Green Bay and Pulaski is in good shape, between Pulaski and Zachow there are numerous soft spots. There was was one spot east of Zachow where a road bike rider can expect to walk. Particularly from Pulaski west trees and brush have grown up on both sides of the trail so that for much of the ride it's like riding in a green tunnel and one really can't see the country side. In general the Shawano County portion of the trail needs attention although the trail through the city of Shawano is paved. Along the trail the bridges are in good shape, i. e. no protruding nails, no down trees blocking the trail, and all the road crossings had warning signs. If riding west to east be advised that the trail direction sign at Maple Ave. west of Shawano points in the wrong direction; be sure to turn left, not right. On the Saturday I rode there were a number of riders for about the five miles west of Green Bay but between there and Eland I saw a total of six riders.

Wiouwash State Trail

Easy ride

August, 2017 by donsenzig

These comments refer to the northern portion of the trail from Birnamwood to Eland. The trail is in good shape except for a few soft sports but should be easily negotiable by bikes with 32 mm tires. The trail doesn't appear to be heavily used. I met no other riders. Looking at Google Earth it would appear that the trail could be extended on the abandoned rail line the approximately 17 miles to Antigo. A possible project for Rail-to-Trails Conservancy?

Buffalo River State Trail

Nightmare bicycle trail

August, 2017 by bobsiewert

August 2016, I attempted to ride my bike between Mondovi and Eleva and the trail was simply too sandy. My hybrid tires sank a few inches on the trail for long streches The Mondovi trailhead portion was extremely rough. I wanted to give the trail another try so I traveled to Eleva. traveling west of the town was impossible on my bike. Traveling east was doable however there were a few soft patches along the way. Between Strum and Osseo, near a bridge, I hit a hole, on the trail, which causes me to wipe out and crack some ribs. Please be careful on this trail as it is also shared with ATVs travelling at much higher speeds.

This is an amazing Trail that winds through Stevens Point. We use it multiple times weekly. If you are looking for biking walking running. You can do it all on this trail!

Tomorrow River State Trail

nice trail to Scandinavia

July, 2017 by david118

Very good rail trail, with slight grades on most of it. We went from Amherst to Scandinavia (8.5 mi one way) and back with an hour break at the ScandiHus coffee/gift shop in about 3.5 hrs. Good ride if you aren't in good shape,as not hard but gentle grade gives you some workout

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Poor condition east of Shawano

July, 2017 by mbaumga

Drove a longer distance to Shawano to ride a different portion of trail and was very disappointed. Unlike the section from Weston to Bowler, which is better condition, east of Shawano for at least 10 miles is in poor condition and has unfortunately been forgotten. Very little crushed limestone just grass and dirt which doesn't dry out very well, its like riding in a grassy yard. A couple of minor farmland drainage problems have ruined the trail and left several inches of mud on it. This section seems to have extremely poor priority in terms of maintenance, as long as its passable for snowmobiles in the winter it is good enough for the state of Wisconsin.

A Must, Trail!

July, 2017 by rwenzel1325

Scenic, peaceful, and a journey through of Wisconsin's beauty.

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Do not go in the trail!

July, 2017 by uniquelyyourseo

We jumped on the trail just outside Shawano heading to Pulaski. Tall grass, holes, mud, and no toilets are what you will have. Once you get into brown county the trails are beautiful. I highly recommend you do not use this trail in Shawano county. West of Shawano the trail is on the road so you are dealing with traffic and no trees.

Pine Line Trail

This is a snowmobile trail masquerading as a bike trail

June, 2017 by dean.smith_tl

Started in Medford and rode North. The trail was great and as advertised (crushed limestone/granite) until Whittlesey. There were a couple of trees down (very recent) over the trail just out of Medford however I was able to carry my bike under and over them. The trail kind of deteriorates until Chelsea and then it is mostly not maintained with grass and weeds about 2' high and mud bogs (this has been an exceptionally wet year in WI from what I hear) for much of it. I was riding a mountain bike with knobby tires and was covered in mud by the time I got to Westboro. I don't think a smooth tired bike would make it. In a few places along the way people are cutting the grass and it is like you are riding across someone's lawn.

That said I had a great time. The trail to Westboro is away from Wisconsin HWY 13 and I saw no one except for deer, gold finches and one otter munching down a craw dad which was pretty cool as I had never seen an otter in the wild before.

So my wife drove to Westboro with the dog and the dog's trailer where we met up with the thought of riding to Prentice. I hooked the trailer to my bike and started riding. Very slow going and very low gears lots of muck. Keep to the center of the trail as there is poison ivy growing up to the very edges and you don't want to brush up against it.

We got to about mile 17.5+/- and there was about a foot of water over the trail. We threw in the towel and turned around. The section north of Westboro that we rode is adjacent to HWY 13 and was not at all peaceful with the logging trucks and other semi's blasting along next to the trail (kind of reminded me of the glacial drumlin trail between Dousman and Waukesha along HWY 18)

There are snowmobile clubs that advertising that they are maintaining the trail but probably not for bikes. All in all pretty cool from Medford to Westboro but pretty rustic from a rail-trail stand point. For what it is worth

Buffalo River State Trail

Buffalo River Trail/Mondovi

May, 2017 by margie_thorp

This trail is NOT for bicycles - it has been used almost exclusively by ATV's and snowmobiles and is not maintained for bicycle use. The dirt or base is deep and heavy - a huge disappointment! There are also dog sled teams training on this trail - so it's full of dog poop. Wouldn't call this a bicycle trail by ANY stretch of the imagination.

Tomorrow River State Trail

From Manawa to Scandinavia

May, 2017 by glh_tl

After a bit of frustration trying to find a trailhead or parking spot in Manawa, I finally asked a man who was outside working on his lawn where to park. He kindly offered information and said parking along the roadside near the trail was fine. Apparently the bridge that connects to downtown Manawa, where parking is more available, is not yet complete. I parked along Wolf Road and picked up the trail at that point. (If you need to stop at a restroom before you hit the trail, there is a gas station in town.)

The ride was pleasant and the trail was in fine condition. There was quite a bit of diversity as it passed through wooded areas, farmland, and marsh areas. The grade is relatively flat with only a few mild hills along the way.

Plenty of birdlife activity kept the sights lively. Be sure to keep you eyes open along the water areas if you want to catch a glimps of turtles sunning on a log or peeking their heads out of the stream.

At Ogdensburg Pond, there is a small dam with a trail bridge that is a nice place to stop and enjoy the scenery before heading on to Scandinavia.

In Scandinavia, I'd suggest getting off the trail and riding the small town roads just north a bit to Silver Lake. Jorgenson Park is on the north side of the lake and well worth the stop. There's a shelter, planked walking trails, and a lovely little bench on a dock where you can take a peaceful rest before hitting the trail again. Also, if you ride around town a bit before heading back to Manawa, you are able to clock a nice 30 miles under your belt.
