Wiouwash State Trail

Wiouwash - Larson to Hortonville

October, 2018 by wojo58

Went for fall ride October 21, temperature 46 degrees - sunny

Started in Larson parked at a little park just off the trail. There was a Port-o-Potty(POP) there, but not sure it was for public use. The trail was in excellent condition with very few rough spots. There was a wet spot (just south of School rd) for about 100 yards...stay on the trail! We road side by side for > 98% of the time; very few people on the trail. The POP at Rt96 is, according to my wife, the nicest POP she's ever used. Its also just about half way between the towns. Went into town at Hortonville and ate at the little park on Black Otter Lake. Also checked out the old bank building(1916) and the Opera House (NOT the grand Ole type).

Had a great time, will do the Larson to Oshkosh leg some time, but the southernmost 3-4 miles are not as isolated and go into the town of Oshkosh near the lake. Even though the lake shore routing is nice (we checked it out), we like the out in the country feeling a little more.

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).

Fun & Long Day on Trail - 07.14.18

July, 2018 by dangyang3631

I just completed a one-day, 97-mile bike ride on this trail, starting at the Howard, WI trail-head to Weston, WI, and through Wausau [to go home] for the added miles. The best conditions were in Brown County, with lots of shade and lots of trail users. Marathon County had good conditions too, but had much less shade over the trail [bring sunblock]. Shawano County conditions were...different. Prepare for a double-track fire road throughout almost all of Shawano County with the likelihood of muddy spots. If biking, a mountain bike is a must or bring a road bike with at least 38mm wide tires with tread [my personal recommendation]. Deer flies were very numerous throughout Shawano County. I have about two dozen deer fly bites across my hands and arms [bring bug spray]. Also, there were six areas on the trail with downed trees--two of which were very difficult to navigate around [I think all six areas were somewhere between mile marker 50-60--from Howard, WI]. Honestly, as tough a day as it was, it was a really fun and gorgeous trail to ride. I personally liked the variety in trail conditions. I highly recommend this trail for the prepared enthusiast.

Green Circle Trail

Great Trail

July, 2018 by deverson_tl

We live an hour away from this trail and have driven past it many times, but never tried it. Finally decided to ride it two weeks ago. It is a great trail. Up and down hills, in the woods and wetlands, and through quiet neighborhoods, this trail has it all. It is about 30 miles around the whole trail. We added two extra trails that branch off of it (Hoover Road Trail and Heartland Trail) to make it around 44 miles. The trail is well marked and you won't have problems figuring out where to go. We ate downtown at The Wooden Chair and had an excellent lunch. They are only open from 7 to 2 so plan your ride accordingly. We plan on making this trail one of our yearly excursions because we enjoyed it so much.

fun trail

June, 2018 by hargreaves48

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.

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Howard to Pulaski

June, 2018 by jmclincoln

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.

Green Circle Trail

Loved this trail. Well done Stevens Point!

June, 2018 by aeboe

We parked at the Schmeeckle Reserve off of Northpoint Dr. Nice parking, restrooms, filtered water and gift shop. We went west on the Green Circle from the reserve. Trail was well marked, beautiful, interesting and kept up. I am not a fan of riding in the street or crossing roads and this trail has both. However, I really enjoyed this trail and I am looking forward to riding it again. It took us around 2 1/2 hours (24 miles) and we did not do any of the spurs. We rode during the weekday. Really impressed with this reserve!

River Bend Trail (WI)

This is a very nice river trail, using much of a railroad bed. It’s the most used park in the City. The blacktop is smooth, great for bikes, roller blades etc.

Tomorrow River State Trail

Great Fall Ride

October, 2017 by buehler868

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

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Weston Trailhead - 10.4.2017

October, 2017 by kathleen.esqueda

Walked 2 miles in from the Weston trailhead. Trail in excellent shape. This section of the trail runs parallel to a very busy, noisy road on one side and the backyards of homes on the other. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful walk in the woods this is not it. If you don’t mind the noise and walking closely past houses and businesses it might work for you. Giving at least two stars for the great trail condition; however, this section of the trail was not what I personally had hoped it would be.

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Shawano County portion needs work

August, 2017 by donsenzig

These comments apply to the trail between Green Bay and Eland. The trail between Green Bay and Pulaski is in good shape, between Pulaski and Zachow there are numerous soft spots. There was was one spot east of Zachow where a road bike rider can expect to walk. Particularly from Pulaski west trees and brush have grown up on both sides of the trail so that for much of the ride it's like riding in a green tunnel and one really can't see the country side. In general the Shawano County portion of the trail needs attention although the trail through the city of Shawano is paved. Along the trail the bridges are in good shape, i. e. no protruding nails, no down trees blocking the trail, and all the road crossings had warning signs. If riding west to east be advised that the trail direction sign at Maple Ave. west of Shawano points in the wrong direction; be sure to turn left, not right. On the Saturday I rode there were a number of riders for about the five miles west of Green Bay but between there and Eland I saw a total of six riders.
