Bearskin State Trail

beautiful trail

September, 2017 by reggypowe

Had a great time on this Trail. very nice

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?

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

Nicolet State Trail

Not for biking

July, 2017 by kate.s.peyton

This trail is not for biking. At all. Full stop. We picked it as it was listed in a state-issued brochure on bike paths in Wisconsin. This is a shared used trail and, as such, it has basically become ATV only. Loose gravel for most of the trail - absolutely grueling. The trail was so torn up - and the ATVs so numerous and inconsiderate - in Gillett that we got on the trail in Wabeno and made it to Tippler but the trip was grueling. We turned around and came back on state HWYs (139, 8, 32) and even with the intense hills, we made it back in a third of the time. If you bike on this trail, it will be an unpleasant slog.

This may be a fun trail for ATVing, but it isn't that wide so you can't go that fast and it's very hot and dusty.

Wiouwash State Trail

A Must, Trail!

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

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!

Crystal Lake Trail

Best Trail In Wisconsin

September, 2016 by deverson_tl

My wife and I rode this trail for the first time in 2011. We have come back every year since then. You can ride from Saint Germaine all the way to Manitowish Waters on a beautiful paved trail. The best part is that this trail goes up and down hills and around winding corners. It is not a straight, flat trail so it is not boring. We stay in Boulder Junction and break this trail into two days. There are also the Bearskin Trail in Nearby Minocqua and the Three Eagle Trail in Eagle River to ride if you don't get enough miles for one of your rides. One warning, if you want to ride at a faster pace go earlier in the morning before families get on it. The trail can be dangerous when meeting inexperienced riders around sharp curves and at the bottom of steep hills. We get out by 7:30 AM.

Conover-Phelps Trail

Northern Wisconsin in a nutshell...

September, 2016 by hurricanedij39

Though largely a straight line, this trail has the perfect northwoods mix of of prairie, woodland, and marshland. I wouldn't mind seeing it stay natural as the 2.9 miles as it is and not continue on to Phelps.
