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

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.

September, 2021 by danwarwick

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.

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.

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.

Eisenbahn State Trail

pretty good

good for walking, great for biking.

Sheboygan Interurban Trail

Ozaukee County to Oostburg

July, 2021 by drprovanch

This trail is very scenic as we biked north from the Ozaukee trail. We immediately could tell the difference as this trail had a more wooded or nature feel. We stopped and turned back at the trail’s end just short of Oostburg rather than following the quiet roads the short distance into the village. We wish the trail continued further into Sheboygan County without the reliance on county highways. It’s a great start!

Ozaukee Interurban Trail

Port Washington north

July, 2021 by drprovanch

We did the northern leg the second day, parking at the DOT park & ride lot at the I43 northern exit. The scenery is mostly farmland with flat terrain. There are areas with potholes which may be marked with painted circles. It is a great exercise trail as the lack of curves and people walking the trail allowed us to bike faster than normal. We continued further on the Sheboygan County trail at the north end before returning to Port Washington.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail

Mequon to Port Washington

July, 2021 by drprovanch

This is a very nice trail, well maintained and well marked when you’re biking quiet streets in the various communities. We stopped in Port Washington at a lakeside park for a break before returning to Mequon.
