Fox River State Trail

renting a bike.

July, 2024 by mlpakieser

I rented a bike from Petes Garage excellent service. I would recommend to use this bike shop if you need to rent a bike in the future. The staff was incredible and very helpful.

Fox River State Trail

incredible bike ride

July, 2024 by mlpakieser

I bicycled this path today the fox river Trail It was absolutely beautiful. Going from urban sounds just suburban areas and then finally into farming. I rode out to mile 12 and then turned around and came back. It was incredible. Nature sounds were everywhere.

East River Trail

Amazing trail although not enough signage

July, 2024 by mmaryandarturo

I started at the Bairds Creek trailhead and through trial and error found out how it connected to the East River Trail. Not marked at all with signs to link the trails together. I think where it crosses busy Mason St is where the two trails come together. The ERT was very nice, great condition other than the fact that part of a trail was impassable due to east river overflowing its banks. But was able to get through going over the street and down to trail. Easy fix. The last portion before Ledgeview Park was completely overrun by gushing water. No sign warning you of what’s ahead.

Eisenbahn State Trail (Route of the Badger)

Fantastic trail for biking

July, 2024 by rkhilt

This trail exceeded our expectations. Scenery was beautiful and trails were in great condition. This seems to be a hidden gem. We rode from the Eden trailhead to Kewaskum. We will definitely ride this trail again.

Wiouwash State Trail

nice trail

July, 2024 by lemur.margin-0

Very enjoyable ride from Medina to Oshkosh put on 38 miles. Horse owners need to pick up the Horse **** !!! Very inappropriate

Newton Blackmour State Trail

Brush Needs Cutting

June, 2024 by marcusandshelleymack

We began our trip in Seymour with the intent to bike to New London. Between Seymour and Black Creek there is a very large part of a tree down across the path and we had to find a way to get our bikes around it through the brush. After traveling further (about two miles to the east of New London) the path was covered with very high brush, so much that we had to turn around and go back. The path itself was quiet.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail (Route of the Badger)

Depends what day

June, 2024 by drozey7

I used to love this trail, too many rude and inconsiderate riders from Milwaukee.

Ozaukee Interurban Trail (Route of the Badger)

Port Washington

June, 2024 by patrick.smith47203

Picked up the trail by Holiday Inn and went North. Nice run with limited traffic… good paved path to put in a few miles

Tomorrow River State Trail

East end parking

May, 2024 by banker.kyle

There's no parking at the Manawa end. If you're wanting to start from the east end, there is a small dirt parking area in Ogdensburg just off the trail. The 5 miles of trail from Ogdensburg to Manawa are pocketed with horse hoof imprints so you don't miss much by starting there. The location is off highway K/E and Moore St in Ogdensburg. Map coordinates are 44.454120, -89.029714

Great trail, otherwise. Scenic and peaceful. It will be much better once its complete.
