Apple Creek Trail

An easy walk.

Levee Trail (Portage)

I walked this trail on a cold winter day and found it to be generally cleared of snow which was great, having nice views of the river and easy to access. I would definitely do it again.

CE Trail

CE Trail

January, 2021 by duvernaydanielr

First off, the CE Trail connects perfectly to the Newberry Trail which can bring you into the center of Appleton. The Trail is a good condition and perfect for walking and biking. Every time I ride on it I see people enjoying it. There are big hills/descents to cross some roads, but it's nothing impossible. It also connects to many other roads like State Park Road, almost all of them are perfect for biking. Overall it serves as a funnel into and out of Appleton while also connecting you to multiple businesses like the Kimberly YMCA and the Recyclist. I use it at least once a month.

Wiouwash State Trail
