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...

Wife and I live in Oconto, currently. You used to be able to bike in Copper Culture park but they put up "no bicycles" sign, so bicycles are not allowed there anymore.
So now there is mainly Pecor Street which is bicycle and walking specific and the rest is streets.
Don't know why bicycles are banned... We never heard of complaints. Trails were not ripped up.
I LOVE the ERT! It is nice to have an urban trail that is surrounded by nature.
For the first time I have a concern about it- the waste recepticles have been overflowing since Memorial Day weekend!
Was 96 deg in Milwaukee, 68 on the trail! perfect triking weather Would have stayed another day but the hotels are too pricey. Book a hotel in advance!
I ride this trail sometimes several days a week. It is really nice on weekdays. Its can busy at certain times but never too crowded. Watch your speed on blind corners as other riders and walkers/runners may come up quick.
Walked 2 miles in from the Weston trailhead. Trail in excellent shape. This section of the trail runs parallel to a very busy, noisy road on one side and the backyards of homes on the other. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful walk in the woods this is not it. If you don’t mind the noise and walking closely past houses and businesses it might work for you. Giving at least two stars for the great trail condition; however, this section of the trail was not what I personally had hoped it would be.
These comments apply to the trail between Green Bay and Eland. The trail between Green Bay and Pulaski is in good shape, between Pulaski and Zachow there are numerous soft spots. There was was one spot east of Zachow where a road bike rider can expect to walk. Particularly from Pulaski west trees and brush have grown up on both sides of the trail so that for much of the ride it's like riding in a green tunnel and one really can't see the country side. In general the Shawano County portion of the trail needs attention although the trail through the city of Shawano is paved. Along the trail the bridges are in good shape, i. e. no protruding nails, no down trees blocking the trail, and all the road crossings had warning signs. If riding west to east be advised that the trail direction sign at Maple Ave. west of Shawano points in the wrong direction; be sure to turn left, not right. On the Saturday I rode there were a number of riders for about the five miles west of Green Bay but between there and Eland I saw a total of six riders.
Along side the water, beautiful scenery, and Packers landmarks. Flat, asphalt trail through Green Bay and south. Went under bridges, through the woods, past Vince Lombardi's house, and Curly Lambeau's grave. Nice
trail. No bathroom, though.
My wife and I enjoyed the Devil's River State Trail this afternoon. We encountered a fair amount of rain, and this made the wet gravel a bit more difficult. So we were tired by the time we finished. Our bike computers said we did 29.75 miles for the round trip, though officially the trail is shorter than that.
We were initially surprised to discover that downtown Denmark had a festival going on, so it was busy. But parking was still available at the trailhead. I was impressed; it is a nice park for the trailhead.
We liked that trail mileage markers were posted every quarter mile.
One thing though. Heading south from Denmark all trail markers say XX.XX miles to Rockwood. We were sort of expecting something interesting at the Rockwood trailhead, but there were no services and no signs. You just get there, take a water break and snack, and turn around. My advice would be to start this trail in Denmark and do as much as you have energy for, but don't force yourself to go to the very end.
The whole trail is beautiful, but I sort of think the nicest parts are in the northern section.
Drove a longer distance to Shawano to ride a different portion of trail and was very disappointed. Unlike the section from Weston to Bowler, which is better condition, east of Shawano for at least 10 miles is in poor condition and has unfortunately been forgotten. Very little crushed limestone just grass and dirt which doesn't dry out very well, its like riding in a grassy yard. A couple of minor farmland drainage problems have ruined the trail and left several inches of mud on it. This section seems to have extremely poor priority in terms of maintenance, as long as its passable for snowmobiles in the winter it is good enough for the state of Wisconsin.
This trail is not for biking. At all. Full stop. We picked it as it was listed in a state-issued brochure on bike paths in Wisconsin. This is a shared used trail and, as such, it has basically become ATV only. Loose gravel for most of the trail - absolutely grueling. The trail was so torn up - and the ATVs so numerous and inconsiderate - in Gillett that we got on the trail in Wabeno and made it to Tippler but the trip was grueling. We turned around and came back on state HWYs (139, 8, 32) and even with the intense hills, we made it back in a third of the time. If you bike on this trail, it will be an unpleasant slog.
This may be a fun trail for ATVing, but it isn't that wide so you can't go that fast and it's very hot and dusty.
We jumped on the trail just outside Shawano heading to Pulaski. Tall grass, holes, mud, and no toilets are what you will have. Once you get into brown county the trails are beautiful. I highly recommend you do not use this trail in Shawano county. West of Shawano the trail is on the road so you are dealing with traffic and no trees.
I have just completed the entire trail in 4 round-trip segments - Casco to Algoma, Luxemburg to Kewaunee, Forestville to Algoma, and Sturgeon Bay to Forestville. This is a good trail that requires a hybrid or mountain bike - generally dry with a few wet areas (no puddles), and rough in some spots due to horses. Good rural and forest scenery. Saw lots of deer and sandhill cranes.
