Rawley Point Trail

Fun ride with lots of curves

August, 2018 by kmolter

This trail is densely shaded almost the entire length as you wind through a forest with large old trees, perfect for the hot weather we had that day. The crushed limestone surface is hard packed, so mountain bike tires are not needed. However, super skinny road tires might be slightly dicey in a few stretches. There are no large hills, just small ups and downs and lots of curves - a nice contrast to rail trails that are very straight.

Leaving the car at the beach in Two Rivers, we followed the brown trail signs in town for a few blocks then went north to the end and back, about 14 miles, in a little less than 2 hours with no problem.

Highly recommended.

Newton Blackmour State Trail

Wouldn’t recommend New London to Shiocton

August, 2018 by 4sudas

I typically ride pebble trails but this trail is a mixture of sand and pebbles, making it a difficult ride. I have a crossover bike and was looking to trying out the trail. I typically ride Wiouwash or the CB trail. Unfortunately, there’s absolutely no scenery during this leg of the trail. I started at House Road as someone else mentioned, none of the cross roads at the west end of the trail have a parking lot or trail head, so I had to park off the road. It looks like Shiocton heading east looks better, but the trail itself makes this a very difficult ride. I plan to try the other leg, I will update when I get there.

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).

Newton Blackmour State Trail

Pretty good shape, map is wrong

July, 2018 by crackbiscuit

As another reviewer pointed out, the west end of the trail actually starts at House Rd, a mile and a half outside New London, and not as shown here and in Google Maps.

The trail surface was overall in really good shape (on June 10, 2018). There are some hoof marks and washouts, but the trail is extra wide and they're easy to avoid.

There are no places to take a break and sit down west of Black Creek, and only a couple from Black Creek east, so keep that in mind when planning how long a trip you wanna do on the trail. If it's a mosquito kind of day, you're not gonna wanna stop for long anyway! (There are bars and such in the communities you pass through.)

There was some nearby gunfire. Many hunting shacks dot the private lands along the trail.

Trees are nearby for most of the trail, but not close enough to provide any shade during midday.

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.

Eisenbahn State Trail

loved this trail

July, 2018 by hargreaves48

My friend and I bike the whole trail. It was hot out but had a great breeze. There are lots of bridges, great scenery, mostly gravel, but paved on the west bend end. There are bugs so spray and you’ll be fine. Fun trail. If us, 2 old ladies and do it, you can too. We are over 70!

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.

Fox River State Trail

Fabulous Ride

June, 2018 by jmclincoln

The Fox River Trail in Green Bay WI should be in the Rails-to-Trails Hall of Fame. It’s mostly pavement or cement the fist 11miles, with beautiful parks and gardens along the way. The northern half hugs the river, so cool breezes and intriguing vistas are part of the ride. Businesses along the way put out water for your dog. The south half, although a crushed stone surface just past mile marker 11, is worth the ride to Greenleaf for a scrumptious lunch.

Mascoutin Valley State Trail

Great Ride on a Hot Day

June, 2018 by mctamara

We rode the Ripon-Berlin route up and back. It was an unusually hot day, but the trail is 80 - 90% shaded. Very few open areas and a few minutes' ride gets you back in the shade. A round of thunderstorms had just finished when we set out but the trail was mostly dry and very well-maintained. Mosquitoes were abundant so wear spray if you plan to stop for a bit. Had a break and nice lunch at Shepard's in Berlin, and made use of Mike's Bike Shop in Berlin too. Be aware that there are signs prohibiting electric bikes on this trail...I contacted authorities who stated that ebikes are fine for anyone with a disability or who might be pulling a disabled person. I plan to address this further. I had my regular bike this time but often use my ebike to pull my disabled adult daughter.

Eisenbahn State Trail

Nice training ride

June, 2018 by cnuechtrails

This is a nice training ride. It is very flat and not a lot of scenery the first 10 miles out of West Bend. Bring sunscreen because most of it is in the open.

Eisenbahn State Trail

nice, but loose top gravel on north half

June, 2018 by sensi3d

I ride a trike with 2" balloon tires. the first 5 miles from Rusco dr. were great. At Barton it switched to traffic bond (stone) . The stone on top of a hard base was loose . This made for a bumpy and noisy ride. Have ridden hundreds of miles on stone trails and never seen this much loose stone. Still ride able though.
