Mountain-Bay State Trail

June ride

June, 2019 by russjean

Cycled from Bowler to Hadley. In Shawano County there were several places the trail was washed out and several bridges has severely warped boards ,
In Marathon county the trail was in excellent condition . At the county line if you looked west the trail was clean and clear if you looked east weed covered. The forgiving part was on the return it became hot and muggy. The Shawano trail is heavily wooded so shady and we saw many deer on the trail.

Ahnapee State Park Trail

Very Nice

June, 2019 by catslave

We rode this on our cyclocross bikes from Sturgeon Bay to Cashton and back, around 54 miles. We have ridden almost all the rail trails in Wisconsin and this is a lovely one. It is a gravel trail and not suitable for road bikes. The trail was a bit weedy in places but easily traversed and the countryside was beautiful. The only reason I give this trail 4 stars instead of 5 is that the trail markers are small and somewhat confusing. We wound up lost in Algoma at one point because we couldn't figure out where the trail went. A map is highly advisable, as is careful attention to trail signs.

East River Trail

frozen trail

January, 2019 by jfruhman_tl

Very nice trail that connects several parks with many different athletic facilities. Follows along the river closely. Only downside is parts of the trail may be flooded when the river is high.

Duck Creek Trail (WI)

Relaxing Ride

September, 2018 by scottnei3

This trail is excellent for a nice relaxing ride or pushin on a workout. I would recommend either a hybrid our gravel bike, although a mountain bike is not necessary. Many parts of the trail are “2 lane single track” with short vegetation down the middle. Other parts of the trail from Hobart past Seymour are all gravel. This trail connects with the Newton Blackmore trail for a total length of over 22 miles. I only rode 3 miles past Seymour from Hobart. The trail head in Hobart isn’t real well marked, but there is room for a few vehicles there.

Devil's River State Trail

Great Trail

August, 2018 by dpoquette

I started this trail in Denmark and rode the entire length of the trail. At Denmark, it was well marked with rest stop facilities. The trail is a very pretty trail. You see lots of wildlife as well as farm animals. It is a well maintained trail. My only complaint is that the end of the trail in Rockwood could be marked better. There are a number of buildings that may be confused for a parking lot for the trail.

Fox River State Trail

Fox River Trail

August, 2018 by dpoquette

I started this trail at Forest Junction and road it into Green Bay. It was an excellent trail. I started out on the gravel portion which lasted about half of the journey. Once I got into brown county, there were rest stops and places to purchase your trail pass. Trail passes are only required on the Brown County portion of the trail (I had verified this with a person at the Calumet Couty parks office).

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.

Ahnapee State Park Trail

Getting too rough

July, 2018 by dolderman1224

I have frequently ridden from Harold Reckelberg park for the past 4-5 years to Algoma & Kewaunee. I love the rural settings and solitude, but this year's rides have been too rough to enjoy on our Treks (700c x 35). Horses make the ride like cobblestone! Not sure if we'll try again later this season. Otherwise, these are my favorite trails to ride.

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.

Ahnapee State Park Trail

Sturgeon Bay to Kewaunee

July, 2018 by donsenzig

I rode the Ahnapee trail from S. Neenah Ave. & Wilson Rd. in Sturgeon Bay to Miller & Milwaukee Streets in Kewaunee. According to my computer the distance was 39.36 miles. Although there were thunderstorms the day before the trail was in excellent shape. Unsure of trail conditions I rode my mountain bike with 2 inch tires but would have had no trouble with a road bike with 25 mm tires. The trail apparently doesn't get much use. I only met six other riders, all before I reached Algoma. It's a very nice ride with terrain varying between woodland, wetlands, and farmland. However, bug spray is recommended. Carry water, facilities are limited. The Village Kitchen restaurant in Casco is recommended if hot food is desired along the trail; good food, friendly staff, excellent service, and homemade cherry pie that can't be beat.

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.
