The Nicolet State Trail runs for 90 miles through three counties, numerous small communities and Nicolet National Forest in northeastern Wisconsin. Following a former railroad route used by the timber...

Rode the trail 10.29.21. Beautiful Fall scenery along the trail. I especially liked that this trail did not run adjacent to a busy highway like so many RtT do. Also enjoyed the variety of the landscapes and the fact that a large portion of the trail is higher than the adjacent terrain allowing for good views and vistas. Passing through a couple of small towns on the route was also enjoyable.
I deducted 1 star because there was a logging operation along about half of the trail. The heavy equipment being used tore up the surface pretty badly. I will assume that once the logging operation is complete, the surface will be restored (?).
Rode from Luxemburg to Kewaunee Fishery. After three days of rain the trail was dry. Most of trail is away from roads and beautiful. Had bonus to watch salmon swimming into fishery. Daughter was fascinated by the salmon.
Biked from Sturgeon Bay to the town of Algoma a little over 34 miles round trip. Absolutely beautiful day. The trail is mostly crushed limestone and mostly flat. Great for beginners. E-bikes would be fine on this trail. The town of Algoma is quaint and friendly and the views of the water and beach is lovely. Visit the Country Cupboard for some unique gifts and the super friendly owner, Katie. Saw turkeys, deer, and wild blueberry bushes, apple trees, and peach trees!! There’s a nice park for a stop in Forrestville with bathrooms. This was a great ride! Will do this trail Again!
We started walking this trail in Gillett at the entrance in the industrial park off of W Park St. The trail is wide, flat and straight. It is well maintained. I noticed a few beer cans littered along the trail. But, mostly this is a VERY clean trail. We enjoyed the canopy covered parts of the trails through the woods, the open fields and the occasional creek or lake views. We went as far as Spice Lake and circled back. The surface of the trail was challenging and varied with different types of rock along the way. Most areas were loose rocks varying is size from tiny pebbles to 1-2" round. You don't get good traction. We only encountered a few ATVs and they were all very respectful...slowing down and allowing plenty of room to pass. Time of day: weekday morning.
We started walking the trail on the corner of S. Main St and W. Oshkosh St near Shawano's downtown. There's ample parking and a trailhead there. We headed west on a 4 mile loop that was indicated on the outdoor map. The trail was flat and easy to navigate, mostly paved with granite. It wasn't a scenic route and wasn't well marked. There were times when the gravel trail ended and you had to walk on the road. We had to refer to the TrailLink map and Google maps often to stay on course.
About half the trail is crushed stone, but hard and easy to ride. From the northern end to Lasee Road is paved. Very nice along the river.
Beautiful trail! Easy ride! We ended up doing the whole trail round trip which was just under 30 miles with our kids. Stopped in Maribel on the way back at Gunslinger’s for some much needed fuel(burgers) and more water!
A half of a trail. About 5-6 miles out of town is where the finished very rideable part is. A 11 -12 mile round trip.
The trail is fine gravel… we have electric bikes after 3 miles we turned back. Very disappointed. Worse ride ever… hope we didn’t ruin our motors. Pave the trail or make it dirt but NOT gravel.
I think that this trail was once part of a lost civilization. This is because there has been zero maintenance for years. When I finally found the East entrance, there was tall grass and trees crossing the trail. Very disappointed as I had driven to Oconto just to ride the trails. However, the Copper Culture State Park is a great place to visit.
Love this trail for our rides. It’s a very scenic route. We use it often to travel from the Long Lake area to Laona, Mountain and other areas, from which we depart this trail and travel other trail systems in Florence, Forest and Marinette counties. Think of it as an effective north/south “expressway” corridor route that gets you to other local areas for trail riding and sightseeing. A great ride! worhythe
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.
