The Nicolet State Trail runs for 90 miles through three counties, numerous small communities and Nicolet National Forest in northeastern Wisconsin. Following a former railroad route used by the timber...

I rode the Ahnapee trail from S. Neenah Ave. & Wilson Rd. in Sturgeon Bay to Miller & Milwaukee Streets in Kewaunee. According to my computer the distance was 39.36 miles. Although there were thunderstorms the day before the trail was in excellent shape. Unsure of trail conditions I rode my mountain bike with 2 inch tires but would have had no trouble with a road bike with 25 mm tires. The trail apparently doesn't get much use. I only met six other riders, all before I reached Algoma. It's a very nice ride with terrain varying between woodland, wetlands, and farmland. However, bug spray is recommended. Carry water, facilities are limited. The Village Kitchen restaurant in Casco is recommended if hot food is desired along the trail; good food, friendly staff, excellent service, and homemade cherry pie that can't be beat.
I done this trail a few times love love it. There are getting to be lots of problems though. Mud , ruts, and holes from animals. Wood bridges need marking that they are slippery when wet, be careful. Still one of my favorite trails.
We rode the 12 miles from Howard to Pulaski WI today on a very well maintained trail. It is crushed stone, so a bit slower than pavement. Some areas have been recently resurfaced with pea-sized gravel, so although a touch rougher than older sections, we were glad to see the attention and care that Brown County gives their trails. Only one small section was soft, just as we approached a street that we had to stop for anyway. This section of the trail has many tree canopies that provide shade during the sunny part of the day.
The Fox River Trail in Green Bay WI should be in the Rails-to-Trails Hall of Fame. It’s mostly pavement or cement the fist 11miles, with beautiful parks and gardens along the way. The northern half hugs the river, so cool breezes and intriguing vistas are part of the ride. Businesses along the way put out water for your dog. The south half, although a crushed stone surface just past mile marker 11, is worth the ride to Greenleaf for a scrumptious lunch.
Many reviews mention that the trail is rough in spots and I would need to agree. But I rode it from Algoma to Sturgeon Bay and back (44 miles) on a full carbon Specialized hybrid with 700 x 30 cc tires and had a great time. Yes, the areas where the horses ride are a bit rough but not that bad. My frame has built in zerts to dampen the vibration. Keep in mind the north end of the trail ends in the south side of Sturgeon Bay in an industrial park. From there you can ride into and around town, check out the bridges, boats, parks, and many good eateries. IMO doing this on a mountain bike would be exhausting, but this is definitely not a road bike trail. Gravel - CX - recommended.
Wife and I live in Oconto, currently. You used to be able to bike in Copper Culture park but they put up "no bicycles" sign, so bicycles are not allowed there anymore.
So now there is mainly Pecor Street which is bicycle and walking specific and the rest is streets.
Don't know why bicycles are banned... We never heard of complaints. Trails were not ripped up.
I LOVE the ERT! It is nice to have an urban trail that is surrounded by nature.
For the first time I have a concern about it- the waste recepticles have been overflowing since Memorial Day weekend!
Was 96 deg in Milwaukee, 68 on the trail! perfect triking weather Would have stayed another day but the hotels are too pricey. Book a hotel in advance!
Perfectly enjoyable for casual biking with a beautiful creek that runs through it. Nestled away in forest, you feel as if you're many miles away from civilization. Absolutely wonderful!
I ride this trail sometimes several days a week. It is really nice on weekdays. Its can busy at certain times but never too crowded. Watch your speed on blind corners as other riders and walkers/runners may come up quick.
handicap, disabled, wheelchair, walker. parking. trash receptacles.
really nice flat, dry section of trail from hortonville southward.
The Tomorrow River turned out to be a nice pick for my 2-day fall ride on a typical Wisconsin state rail-to-trail. I broke up my trip at the Scandinavia trail head; going east the first day to Manawa and back was 28 miles, going west the next day to Plover and back was 40 miles. The nearby town of Waupaca was a great overnight base-the local Irish pub was perfect.
The tail has easy grades up and down as the trail travels thru old railroad cuts and fills. You get to see forested areas, pasture land and crop land. There are still a lot of old wooden barns along the way some still in use while others are no longer serving the agriculture economy. The gravel-surfaced trail is in good shape. Signage for the road detour at Amherst Junction is not perfect but the route can be easily determined. One should stop at the Twin Towers Drive trail head in Plover and not travel the uninteresting 1.5 mile stretch to the trails end at Hoover Ave South unless one is going on to follow the long connecter to the Green Circle Trail in Stevens Point. One negative is the trail heads do not have water or any toilets
