Green Circle Trail

Not up to my expectation

December, 2018 by jfruhman_tl

I am a hiker and decided to do the circle trail within the larger loop. Took about 1 1/2 hours. While some parts of the trail were very picturesque too many parts were not especially on the east side of the river by the factories and houses. There are so many better trails in Wisconsin I will not waste my time again

River Bend Trail (WI)

Winter walk

Great view of the river during winter when the foliage is gone

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.

Three Eagle Trail

Great Tail

September, 2018 by dschildt

I have been visiting the Three Lakes area for the past few years and always look forward to riding this trial. Of the 10 or so trails I have riden this one is the best. This web site discribes what to expect on this trail and the other reviews are also helpful in this regards. I rode the trail on my Catrike Dumont recumbent and it was pure joy. I rode the entire trail both ways starting at the Dollar Store in Three Lakes and ending near the stop and go lights in Eagle River. My GPS said I traveled 25 miles total. I averaged approximately 12 miles per hour on the packed gravel so it took about two hours to ride both ways.You won't be dissapointed riding this trail. It was great. The only causion is to go slow through the 4 or 5 partially closed gates that keep motorized vehicles off the trail. I have a friend who on a different trail broke his neck (fractured C2) hitting one of those barriers because he wasn't paying attention and was riding too fast. So be careful.

Mountain-Bay State Trail

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.

Bearskin State Trail

Was that a bear i smelled?

June, 2018 by aparrott58

Rode from county K to south blue lake. Saw snakes, frogs, and turtles and smelled a bear and saw fresh scat on the trail. Met up with maint guy who said that he too has seen bears on this trail, thus confirming my suspicions. This is the best trail in WI that i have ridden so far. Wild country, limited people, few bugs (although it was very windy). Trestles were cool. Got photos of canoeists on river and bikers on trail. Had to push my bike up the very steep hill (why is there a steep hill on a rail trail??). Will do again if in the area. Way too much fun!




Wiouwash State Trail

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)

April, 2018 by greg.hartwig00

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.

Bearskin State Trail

Bear Skin State Trail

November, 2017 by lucas6

I rode the Bear Skin Trail Oct. 6, 2017, starting at County K. I saw no other riders during my evening ride. The lakes and river scenery was spectacular. Bring a camera. I expected to see deer and was not disappointed. Most of the deer quickly disappeared into the forest, but one doe stood 20 feet from the trail and never moved as I passed. Her image will be in my mind forever. Riding the Bear Skin Trail in early morning or early evening should produce many wildlife sightings. The trail accommodates all bicycles with it's hard-packed surface.
