Did the whole Southern segment. Was a decent trail..the usual trail trail..nothing spectacular. The part of the trail running along the water is pretty. Low rating is for the all the horse **** up n down the entire trail. The leaves this time of year really hide the piles.
This trail system is awesome and will def be back when I can spend the whole day exploring all of them! It was pleasantly surprised to see it ran through the sculpture garden! Love that it passes by water and has boardwalks.
We rode from Ringle to Weston. Nice ride
Excellently maintained trail. Can go for a swim at Emily lake mid way through!
It’s not kept up like other rail trails but it’s still nice. Parking on either end isn’t great, I suggest just parking on House Rd if starting in NL. Good chunks of the trail are full sun. Very peaceful with little people. Can’t wait to come back when the leaves change!
Great trail for specific riders. This isn’t a trail for road bikes or early riders. My six year old son struggled but I think he will be the appropriate age and skill level next year. So great trail for off road bikers. I recommend!
We rode a small portion of this trail to add miles to the Mountain Bay also done on this date. The intersection of the two trails is on grass for approximately 100 yards. If you didn't know it was there it could be missed. There was a lot of weed overgrowth on the trail, it is not well maintained. We rode from Eland to Birnamwood for a total of 8 miles.
We completed this trail in multiple legs.

We started at the Trailhead in Howard, Wisconsin. There is an outhouse. We rode from the trailhead to approximately 1/2 way between Green Valley Road and Elm Road. 30.16 miles. The Brown County surface is crushed limestone, some of it packed. Shawano County is crushed pea gravel. Both counties were well groomed. The path in Brown County is wider in some areas.

We started on Ash Circle off of Hwy 22 headed East toward Pulaski, after 15 miles we turned around about 1/4 mile past Elm Road. The first five miles there was frequent horse dung. There is a restaurant on the trail that had a horse tie out. Other than that the trail was clean with no high weeds. Surface was gravel, somewhat packed. There were no facilities on this leg. A tornado came through this area in June, 2022, the trees were cleaned off the trail. Total ride was 30 miles.

We started the ride near Herman Street & Grunewald Street, parking across the street from the Long Branch Saloon where there is a Memorial Shelter with picnic tables & a covered open shelter. It is parallel to the trail. Headed East toward Shawano turning around at county HHH. Total ride was 30.64 miles. On this APP "trailhead and water" was indicated, neither existed. About 4 miles of the ride was on a county road. It is the portion of the APP map that veers off. The trail in the village of Shawano is paved. The trail is clean with no high weeds. The Railroad station in Shawano has bathrooms. There was no tree damage on this section from the June tornado. 30.64 miles

We started at the same location across from the Long Branch Saloon heading West to Shepley. This segment had tree damage from the June tornado. It was sparse until after the covered bridge. Approximately a 3.5 mile stretch with frequent downed trees that had been cleared from the path. The clearing left the terrain difficult to manage, lots of sticks and uneven path caused by the heavy equipment used to remove the trees. There were 4 sections of approximately 1/8 mile each of torn up trail due to the heavy equipment and sticks left on the trail. The trail was marked with signage that this segment was closed, we did not see it on the way out. As the trail is used for snowmobiles, hopefully it gets fully cleaned up by winter. 30 miles.

We stayed at the Ho Chunk Casino. The trail was easy access from this starting point. We headed East to Shepley then West to Eland. We took a small detour heading North on the Wiouwash State Trail to Birnamwood. This leg was 8 miles round trip. That small leg was not well maintained. We rode on grass at the start for about a football field, if you didn't know the trail was there you could actually miss it. The two trails supposedly intersect. After returning South we then proceeded on the Mountain Bay Trail heading West toward Eland. The trail was crushed packed stone. Shawano County was weedy and not well maintained. In many areas you had only a small dirt path on each side of the trail that was free of weeds. Once you reach Marathon County the surface changes. It was very well maintained and almost free of any weeds or any growth on the trail. We turned around at the 1/4 mile long bridge, before reaching Hatley. There are no facilities on this segment. 30.02 miles of which 8 were on the Wiowash Trail.

We started at the trailhead in Weston on Municipal Street. There are indoor facilities and picnic tables. About 3 miles in there is an outhouse just off the trail on the right. We headed East crossing the 1/4 mile bridge. Then returned West. The surface is excellent and well maintained. There are donated benches frequently along the route. The trailhead in Ringle has an outhouse, however it hadn't been serviced in some time when we were there. The trail is mostly wooded with some open areas. 25.83 miles.
The segment from Weston to Eland was the best maintained on this trail.
Total ride, 176 miles less the 8 on Wiowash 168 round trip on Mountain Bay.
I knew going into the trail, it would give me some issues with my mountain bike but that’s biking. If you’re thinking of making time on this trail, I would advise you to take your time, get off your bike and just look around. There is plenty of beauty and wildlife. I support the trail, hoping that one day soon, someone, the communities or the State of Wisconsin could help improve this trail just think what it could do to the communities in the area, would make a good investment. investment
The trails were very nicely taken care of..impressive. It was a bummer they didn’t connect all the way through as well as go all the way to Manawa..it’s so close!
Great trail. Well marked. I will definitely be back to ride this one again soon!
Did this ride on July 26. Trail was in overall good shape but a recent storm caused two trees to come down on the trail near Shioctin. The trail is 21.82 miles long according to my app. Well worth the ride. Would like to do in fall.
