Ahnapee State Park Trail

Pretty Sweet

September, 2022 by the_masseuse

This is an awesome trail with tons of parking along the way. The segment from Algoma to sturgeon bay is maintained better but is also busier. The Algoma to Kewanee segment has more spots of grass vs gravel but is way less busier. Only thing that make this trail better is the upcoming fall colors!

Duck Creek Trail (WI)

Underrated Trail

September, 2022 by the_masseuse

The trails conditions have been improved from what it seems. The grass is mowed and no tree debris. The crushed stone fades away as you head into Oneida. According to this the 6 miles of trial is there.. Maps says it’s suppose to goto Hobart but it does not, it ends in Oneida, but seems like there should be more. Either way it’s a decent little trail that’ll be cool come fall.

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Completed in multiple rides

September, 2022 by jmziesmer

We completed this trail in multiple legs.

July 26, 2022

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.

July 28, 2022

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.

August 3, 2022

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

August 4, 2022

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.

August 30, 2022

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.

August 31, 2022

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.

Packerland Drive Trail

This trail/sidewalk may keep you off the road, but be prepared for many deep cracks, seams, driveway and curb cuts. Jarring would be an apt description of the quality of the ride.

Mariners Trail

Nice trail. Lots of views of lake Michigan. Would like an endpoint trail sign. Took this to the Rawley Point trail.

Rawley Point Trail

This trail is awesome! Better suited for a mountain bike or gravel tires just an fyi. I followed the signs after the mariners trail to connect with this one. Just follow the arrows. Trail goes thru the woods into point beach state forest park.

Ahnapee State Park Trail

Algoma to Sturgeon Bay

August, 2022 by islandguy

Ahnapee State Trail (Sturgeon Bay to Algoma—32 miles RT) We rode this trail round trip from the Algoma end starting just about 7 miles outside of Algoma). The trail is listed as a combination of asphalt and crushed stone. This is a stretch—it is really mostly weeds with two single tracks of crushed stone. The only asphalt is at the surface transitions when crossing over roads. So not ideal for recumbent trikes but we managed to still enjoy the scenic ride despite conditions. It was a lovely day—almost cloudless with a pleasant breeze. We left the trailhead around 10:15AM. We stopped at the Forestville Dam Park for a health break and a few photos. The trail took us past rich marshland with huge cattails—just about ready to burst and spew their seeds, grassland, shady forests and small swamps. We spotted a few turtles in the swamp but got chased by some nasty biting flies so we hurried on. We stopped just shy of Sturgeon Bay where the trail ends and street riding begins—enjoying some well-deserved Lara Bars before heading back down the trail. We only encountered a few hikers and fellow bikers, so we had the trail mostly to ourselves with the exception of some busy Robins (I think), a great blue heron or two, a garter snake, chipmunk and rabbit. We returned to our car about 1:30 PM. The trail actually extends all the way into Algoma but it didn’t appear very interesting...especially since it runs through the more “industrial” part of the town.

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Great but Bowler to Eland…

July, 2022 by jdorner.sfx

Downed trees from Bowler to Eland. I hope they can clear them so this August I can bike it again.

Fox River State Trail

Very nice trail. The asphalt part is perfect. Going away from green bay it turns to gravel. Not much to see there and you won't run into many people.

Devil's River State Trail

Saturday Ride w/ Friends

July, 2022 by ellaqk_tl

After reading some of the reviews for this ride, I was looking forward to it. However, after riding I was disappointed. I thought there might be some fun points of interest along the way and that the end would give us a nice little respite as we saw the quarter mile markers pass by. When we arrived at Rockwood Rd, we found a picnic table to sit at which may or may not have been the property of the business that was there. We were grateful for it, but found little to be excited about. We did stop in Francis Creek at their park which we appreciated much, because there was a bathroom there we could use and was clean. Overall, I would give this trail a 5/10. For us, it was just getting some miles in as it does not compare to other Rail Trails we have ridden. The upsides of the trail was it was straight and relatively flat. The areas where there were hard packed dirt was much better than the trail surface that was gravel which seemed to be the majority of the ride. The worst was that they had just sprayed herbicide and we were on the trail the day after it had reopened and the smell was bothersome to some of us on the ride. Overall, I appreciate those who take the time to maintain the trail for others to use. I am certain it is a fabulous ride when snowmobiling.

Duck Creek Trail (WI)

Trees down from June 2021 tornado

July, 2022 by jmziesmer

We took this trail today. July 13. Starting in Oneida. Approximately 3.5 miles in a tree was down covering the trail. On the other side of that another tree was down. We turned back around. Attempted to ride from the connecting point of the Newton Blackmour. That portion also sustained tree damage. About 1.5 miles in a tree was down you could see two in a row. Trail itself is not very well-maintained there are a lot of low hanging trees on the short part portions we were able to ride. Give them some time to clean this up. As it is also used by snowmobilers I suspect they will get it done before the winter season.

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Bowler to Shawano

July, 2022 by joglazewski

Surface nicer than expected of non paved trail. Be aware of four mile road ride( quiet) heading into Shawano. Trail blocked by large tree 100 yards west of Bowler covered bridge.
