The 26-mile Pine Line Trail calls to mind a time when trains loaded with timber chugged out of northern Wisconsin’s great white pine forests. The local economy still depends on lumber, as sawmills are...

This is my wife's new favorite trail EVER, and we've done many of the famous ones. It is crushed stone, so of course it's not as fast as asphalt, but it is in fantastic shape, wide enough to ride and converse, and like all rail trails, flat for a gentle sight-seeing cruise speed. There was the START of a chipmunk hole, only a divot, really, but someone put a warning flag on it. One spot was soft, and one a very slight drainage rut, neither consequential, yet someone had put out a flag. The approach to and the the trestles themselves impeccably maintained, and any shoulder or maintenance work had been replanted in native sedges so invasives were kept at bay. And scenery! Lakes , century old white pines, tamarack/spruce bogs, deer, turkeys...we can't wait to return. I hope those responsible see this review. Thanks!!!!
We have biked this trail several times in the last few months, it never seems to get old. Coffee or ice cream in a comfy chair at the end of the trail!
not a recumbent tryke trail, great for fat bike mountain bikes or hiking maybe, but I had to turn around after half a mile, already walked up two steep loose gravel hills
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.
This was our first time on this trail and it’s great. My wife & I went from Eagle River to Three Lakes & back. The stretch in between (on the roads) wasn’t bad as we only experienced one car. The northern section had twist & turns through wooded area as well as boardwalks over marshes. The southern section had the same plus a straight section right by Three Lakes. Highly recommend this trail!
Great trail for year round biking and hiking.
First time on this trail & it was great. Wildlife was plentiful and condition of trail was really good. Lots of twists & turns so meeting others can be a little tricky. A few road miles but sparsely traveled by cars. But the variety - boardwalks, asphalt, crushed rock, tree lined, urban, rivers, lakes - you name it & you probably see I on this trail. Great signage too … highly recommend.
Took my first ride on this trail from Birnamwood to Eland where it crosses the Mountain Bay trail. Great ride and despite recent heavy rains it was dry and firm. Will take this trail further as time permits.
Used just two days ago and found very disappointing. I started at the trailhead on Lakeview Drive in Howard. Great ride on crushed limestone until I was 3.5 miles in. The limestone disappeared and I was biking on a swampy, thick, muddy “trail.” About .5 miles later I was back on crushed limestone, but it wasn’t long before I found myself in mud, again. I recall having this problem last summer, but not nearly as bad. Poorly maintained. Hope they add more limestone soon.
Give this trail a chance it’s not too bad nice and flat great for kids, awesome park a block into Medford at the beginning of the trail great places to dine in Ogama right off the trail, A few beautiful bridges going over a little nature area with plenty of beavers and wildlife of all sorts(we saw baby beaver it was adorable). I honestly only did the first 10 miles of the trail which only takes me a few miles out of Ogama, But once I complete the whole trail I will gladly review my review¿. Long story short give this simple flat trail a chance chance¿
We started at the parking lot at highway K and rode north to Blue Lake. This section (roughly 10 miles) was beautiful—a mix of woods opening to many trestles. We saw a deer on the trail and a water snake at the observation point. Bathroom facilities were located at Highway K and Blue Lake. The “steep hill” on the map wasn’t so bad (although we 60 year olds walked our bikes up); the rest of the trail was minimal grade change with a good surface (and paved in the hill).
The trail is a fun ride from Wausau to Green Bay. There are some scenic views and it is a very easy ride. We did this as a one day pilgrimage to our temple (Lambrusco Field). It is interesting how differently the three counties maintain their sections of the trail. Marathon and Brown do a very nice job, but the stretch through Shawano county is riddled with poor conditions at times. However, even at its worst it is still a fun ride.
