Mountain-Bay State Trail

Needs Better Directional Signage

September, 2021 by sharon.kay.baxter

We started walking the trail on the corner of S. Main St and W. Oshkosh St near Shawano's downtown. There's ample parking and a trailhead there. We headed west on a 4 mile loop that was indicated on the outdoor map. The trail was flat and easy to navigate, mostly paved with granite. It wasn't a scenic route and wasn't well marked. There were times when the gravel trail ended and you had to walk on the road. We had to refer to the TrailLink map and Google maps often to stay on course.

Friendship State Trail

rambler

September, 2021 by danwarwick

Went east and west of Loop the Little Lake Trail. East is on mostly side streets to a park. West is only paved halfway and noisy from Hwy 10.

Fox River State Trail

rambler

About half the trail is crushed stone, but hard and easy to ride. From the northern end to Lasee Road is paved. Very nice along the river.

Devil's River State Trail

Great trail!!

September, 2021 by salinaburtnett

Beautiful trail! Easy ride! We ended up doing the whole trail round trip which was just under 30 miles with our kids. Stopped in Maribel on the way back at Gunslinger’s for some much needed fuel(burgers) and more water!

Duck Creek Trail (WI)

A half of a trail. About 5-6 miles out of town is where the finished very rideable part is. A 11 -12 mile round trip.

Oconto River State Trail

Wisconsin's Forgotten Trail

August, 2021 by somersethome2015

I think that this trail was once part of a lost civilization. This is because there has been zero maintenance for years. When I finally found the East entrance, there was tall grass and trees crossing the trail. Very disappointed as I had driven to Oconto just to ride the trails. However, the Copper Culture State Park is a great place to visit.

Nicolet State Trail

Great ATV/UTV trail

August, 2021 by rgoff_tl

Love this trail for our rides. It’s a very scenic route. We use it often to travel from the Long Lake area to Laona, Mountain and other areas, from which we depart this trail and travel other trail systems in Florence, Forest and Marinette counties. Think of it as an effective north/south “expressway” corridor route that gets you to other local areas for trail riding and sightseeing. A great ride! worhythe

Newton Blackmour State Trail

Great trip!

August, 2021 by pechen11

Our family of 7 completed this trail this summer and had a blast. My wife and I have 5 kids ages 4-13 and it took us a few visits to knock out individual sections. We started on the east side of the trail and moved west and the section going into New London was closed unfortunately so we stopped our trip a little bit short. Great overall experience.

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Eland - Bowler Segment

August, 2021 by 8xrnngvkvp

Wife and I took a ride on Sunday with our electric bikes from Eland to Bowler and back. Covered approximately 24 miles. It had rained heavily the day before in the area, but the trail had held up pretty nicely. The majority of this segment is crushed rock and well compacted. There were parts of it that have been overgrown with grass and weeds, but not to bad. My wife’s bike is a cruiser style bike with 2” tires, she had no trouble navigating on the trail. Plenty of scenery changes, with parts of the trail passing by farms, dips into some heavy canopy forest and a covered bridge/stream area right outside the Western edge of Bowler. A very relaxing bike ride, there are a number of stops to cross various county roads, So be aware of any traffic that may be in the way.

Tomorrow River State Trail

Portage County Segment fantastic!

August, 2021 by mkkuolt

We were enjoying the wonderful trail in Portage County (Plover to past Amherst) Everything was well maintained, and all the trees that had come down in the storms last week were cut, moved, and we had full trail access. We knew the moment we hit Waupaca County. 3 foot tall weeds sprouted in the middle of the trail, and things were not as pristine. After having to dismount bikes several times to navigate around trees, we made the decision to turn around. Very disappointing!

Devil's River State Trail

Home Trail

July, 2021 by kjacquart1

My wife and I consider this our "home" trail. We do it several times per year. One of the attractions is the large pond on both sides of the trail north of Maribel. It's appearance is different each visit. There is also parking in Rockwood at the trail end but no facilities until you get to Francis Creek.
