Three Eagle Trail

Super Trail

August, 2017 by walt3

I biked from eagle river to three lakes and back on the three eagles trail. Very well maintained trail. I especially enjoyed several longer board walk sections (all had railings)). Lots of beautiful trees and scenery. Trail is well marked. Bring water as there is no water on the trail. Use bug spray. Worth the trip

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!

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.

Wiouwash State Trail

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

Bearskin State Trail

Great ride

June, 2017 by uccjenlittle

Trail in great shape. Early june. From Harshaw to Minocqua and back. Fabulous!

Wiouwash State Trail

beautiful ride

October, 2016 by lisa202000

We rode from Medina to Hortonville and back on this trail at the end of October. (4 miles each way) This was an absolutely beautiful trip with trees draping over the trail most of the way. It also included some beautiful marsh land and some bird filled meadows. There was a port -potty, some sitting areas and a picnic table for lunching in this short stint of the trail. I can't wait to ride this trail again in the summer time.

Bearskin State Trail

Loved it

October, 2016 by trainman57

I rode this trail in Aug. of 2016. I started in Hazelhurst and rode to the northern trailhead in Minocqua. I then rode down to the southern trailhead at highway K and proceeded a few more miles south down the Hiawatha trail before turning back and riding back to Hazelhurst. I rode about 44 miles all together and loved every moment of the ride. There are plenty of rest stops along the way and there is a scenic overlook just north of pinewood golf course where I sat on the bench in the marsh and had an apple. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful ride. I wish I could do that ride every day. I loved it...

Bearskin State Trail

Nice trail

September, 2016 by catslave

We road this in late July and I echo everything the last two reviewers mentioned. It's a nice trail, the parking lot on K is not well marked so you have to search, but it's a good ride. Unfortunately the bugs that time of year were FEROCIOUS and if you even paused for a minute you were swarmed. Much better to go in fall!

I rode from Howard to Pulaski. Trail was in good shape, but not alot to see.

Three Eagle Trail

First Time on this Trail

August, 2016 by landrich

We biked this trail on Sunday, August 21, after an all day soaker on Saturday so we weren't sure what to expect because this trail is crushed limestone. To our surprise, it was in excellent condition and we really enjoyed it. This trail reminded us of our local Wild Goose Trail in Dodge County in many ways. The facilities along the way were excellent including a water source where we could refill our bottles and a bike station with air etc. We are looking forward to biking it again soon!
