Eisenbahn State Trail

First Trail Ride

September, 2018 by sweetdanakay

My husband and I decided to take up biking and this was our first trail ride and we really enjoyed it. I have a small dog and she travels in a pet basket and she also really enjoy the three hour ride. Mostly gravel but well maintained.

Duck Creek Trail (WI)

Relaxing Ride

September, 2018 by scottnei3

This trail is excellent for a nice relaxing ride or pushin on a workout. I would recommend either a hybrid our gravel bike, although a mountain bike is not necessary. Many parts of the trail are “2 lane single track” with short vegetation down the middle. Other parts of the trail from Hobart past Seymour are all gravel. This trail connects with the Newton Blackmore trail for a total length of over 22 miles. I only rode 3 miles past Seymour from Hobart. The trail head in Hobart isn’t real well marked, but there is room for a few vehicles there.

Devil's River State Trail

Great Trail

August, 2018 by dpoquette

I started this trail in Denmark and rode the entire length of the trail. At Denmark, it was well marked with rest stop facilities. The trail is a very pretty trail. You see lots of wildlife as well as farm animals. It is a well maintained trail. My only complaint is that the end of the trail in Rockwood could be marked better. There are a number of buildings that may be confused for a parking lot for the trail.

Fox River State Trail

Fox River Trail

August, 2018 by dpoquette

I started this trail at Forest Junction and road it into Green Bay. It was an excellent trail. I started out on the gravel portion which lasted about half of the journey. Once I got into brown county, there were rest stops and places to purchase your trail pass. Trail passes are only required on the Brown County portion of the trail (I had verified this with a person at the Calumet Couty parks office).

Friendship State Trail

Brillion to Forest Junction

August, 2018 by dpoquette

I thought this segment of the trail was a very good trail. Well marked in Brilllion. Although, there were some portions of the trail that had small weeks growing through, I thought I was well maintained. I hope they are able to connect the segments soon.

Shoreland 400 Rail Trail

Execellent Trail

August, 2018 by dpoquette

The Shoreline 400 is an execellent trail to ride. My only problem with it is that it’s too short.

Old Plank Road Trail (WI)

hilly trail

August, 2018 by dpoquette

The old plant trail was good trail over all. Some areas on the western side had weeds growing. Very hilly! You notice it traveling west. Lots of rest stops

Rawley Point Trail

Fun ride with lots of curves

August, 2018 by kmolter

This trail is densely shaded almost the entire length as you wind through a forest with large old trees, perfect for the hot weather we had that day. The crushed limestone surface is hard packed, so mountain bike tires are not needed. However, super skinny road tires might be slightly dicey in a few stretches. There are no large hills, just small ups and downs and lots of curves - a nice contrast to rail trails that are very straight.

Leaving the car at the beach in Two Rivers, we followed the brown trail signs in town for a few blocks then went north to the end and back, about 14 miles, in a little less than 2 hours with no problem.

Highly recommended.

Newton Blackmour State Trail

Wouldn’t recommend New London to Shiocton

August, 2018 by 4sudas

I typically ride pebble trails but this trail is a mixture of sand and pebbles, making it a difficult ride. I have a crossover bike and was looking to trying out the trail. I typically ride Wiouwash or the CB trail. Unfortunately, there’s absolutely no scenery during this leg of the trail. I started at House Road as someone else mentioned, none of the cross roads at the west end of the trail have a parking lot or trail head, so I had to park off the road. It looks like Shiocton heading east looks better, but the trail itself makes this a very difficult ride. I plan to try the other leg, I will update when I get there.

Ahnapee State Park Trail

Getting too rough

July, 2018 by dolderman1224

I have frequently ridden from Harold Reckelberg park for the past 4-5 years to Algoma & Kewaunee. I love the rural settings and solitude, but this year's rides have been too rough to enjoy on our Treks (700c x 35). Horses make the ride like cobblestone! Not sure if we'll try again later this season. Otherwise, these are my favorite trails to ride.

Tomorrow River State Trail

A trail of two counties

July, 2018 by crackbiscuit

The western half of the trail, in Portage County, is honestly the best state trail surface I've ever enjoyed. After you cross into Waupaca County (eastbound), the trail degenerates quickly, with the last 10 miles at the east end being some of the worst state trail surfaces I've ever experienced. Hoof marks, overgrowth, sand, and ruts in the eastern portion. Beautiful, rustic scenery throughout, and you're not slammed up against a busy highway, so it's easier to enjoy the beautiful nature around you.

The western end is in the outskirts of a major agri-business area, so pesticides are almost certainly a concern during parts of the year there. (Indeed a sign in Plover mentions that the trail may be closed during aerial spraying days.)

Take a mountain bike (or at least something with larger tires) if you're gonna do the Waupaca County portion. Any bike can handle the Portage County portion, which again, is excellent. I only encountered 6 other cyclists for the entire length of the trail on a beautiful, sunny summer Saturday (June 9, 2018).
