Lake to Lake Bike Trail (WI)

would do it again!

August, 2020 by jstelzel

Left from Long Lake. Perfect for what I was looking for. Varied scenery, lots of gorgeous meadows, some forest, then swamp-like lands as you get closer to Mauthe Lake. Milder hills compared to what you’d find road biking in the area. Some shade (we left around 10:30am) but depending on time of day and position of sun you could have more shade. I didn’t need bug spray but recommend bringing just incase. Trail wasn’t busy at all. Very enjoyable ride.

Duck Creek Trail (WI)

We wanted to try this trail out as we live near it. There are no trail heads marked. The section near the duck Creek Park is completely over grown with trees fallen over the trail. Definitely not for biking. Maybe you would enjoy hiking?

Hilly and little shade. Many road crossings and constant car noise from the highway.

Newton Blackmour State Trail

great trail

July, 2020 by lostindausa

A group of 5 "Biker Babes" rode the trail on July 30, 2020. The trail, of crushed limestone, was in good condition, dry, and level. A country setting of farms, trees, fields and a mix of sun and shade. We took the trail from N. Maple St. in Black Creek and headed west to Shiocton, about 8.5 miles. We had lunch at the River Rail on their outside deck overlooking the Wolf River. Back in Black Creek, we purchased fresh vegetables at Wagner's--a few blocks from the trailhead. There is a parking lot right on Maple St. and easy access to the trail. I recommend this trail.

Sheboygan Interurban Trail

Nice ride!

July, 2020 by emmettbrown

We rode from Belgium to Oostburg. I didn't realize that the Sheboygan Interurban was all paved. Even though I read the trail description I was still expecting gravel when we crossed Hwy. K. The trail seems well maintained and is in good condition. This section of the trail from Hwy K to Oostburg is mostly rural and follows a railroad track. A really beautiful ride. It has a suburban feel when you go through Cedar Grove. There is one road you have to take through an industrial section of Cedar Grove. On the north side of Cedar Grove at Hwy 32 & Commerce St. is a nice trail head with tables and shade and that also has a clean porta-pottie.

When you reach Oostburg the dedicated trail ends and you ride the streets. The first road north through Oostburg is a quiet residential street and it takes you to the trail head at the Oostburg train depot. There are really clean bathrooms inside and tables too. No tables outside but across the tracks to the west is Kups Coffee and Ice Cream. This is where we turned to head back to Belgium.

East River Trail

Odd?

July, 2020 by divot4u

not sure where they get the 5 star or 6.5miles but we did this trail today and while portions were under water which can not be helped due to excessive rainfalls, the trail was perhaps 3 miles max and uneventful.

Tomorrow River State Trail

interesting and varied scenery

July, 2020 by ucrubr

Went Manawa to plover. I enjoyed the different types of landscapes. Decently maintained I’ve been on worse. Hard to find where it picks up in amherst. I lady had to help me. She said no one can find it. There really is no signage.

Mountain-Bay State Trail

Howard to Shawano

July, 2020 by ucrubr

67 miles round trip. Brown county stretch is very well maintained. Shawano not as nice. Two trees were down blocking the trail. A stretch is so overgrown and muddy I was nervous I wouldn’t make it through and get eaten alive by deerflys. Once in Shawano it turns nice again. There is a portion that is closed right before Bonduel but it takes the road for a mile or two and is well marked. Not very traveled on most of the trail. Between the cities. I liked it though. Enough shade and low winds. Want to take the Shawano to Wausau stretch next.

Lake to Lake Bike Trail (WI)

Very beautiful quick ride. Mauthe lake was flooded so it started out a very feet soaking ride... but it makes an experience!

Eisenbahn State Trail

Enjoy the Ride!

July, 2020 by lbbike

I rode this trail in its entirety a few days ago. The portion through West Bend is paved, but the remainder is crushed limestone. A few portions of the trail have some plant growth, but it did not interfere with my ride. Only one small area on the gravel portion felt loose; the remainder of the trail was fine. I would recommend to plan your trip with needed supplies (sunblock, hydration, food, cell phone, and bike repair gear) as some portions of the trail are quite isolated for many miles. Overall, I did enjoy my ride and will likely be back!

Sheboygan Interurban Trail

Nice Route

July, 2020 by jlmueller

Started from Kohler-Andrae SP. Not a fan of on road biking, but nice quiet roads. Nice little coffee ice cream shop “Kups” in Oostburg. Next door at the Oostburg red building are public restrooms. Paved bike trail from Oostburg south.

Mariners Trail

what a lovely trail!

July, 2020 by jilluvspugs

The southern start of the trail begins at maritime museum and submarine. We arrived just as the Manitowoc ferry, SS Badger did to dock. Then, wow passed by numerous meticulously cared-for gardens along the way. The view of lake was magnificent as the trail was right along side it. On this hot day everywhere else was in the 90s and the temp was refreshing near lake temperature. We have to go back and take it slower to enjoy the metal art and statues of Indians.
