The 26-mile Pine Line Trail calls to mind a time when trains loaded with timber chugged out of northern Wisconsin’s great white pine forests. The local economy still depends on lumber, as sawmills are...

Started in Minocqua and biked south to the trailhead at the Cty L/Cty N junction. The trail was beautiful and well maintained with several bridges crossing Bearskin Creek & other streams. Looking out away from the trail were outstanding views of the WI north woods. Lots of deer, birds, a turtle & frogs.
The trail needs to be better marked after you begin riding the road section. There was no sign on Hwy L directing a biker to turn off onto a different road to continue riding other roads towards the gravel trail section again. There should be a sign visible on Hwy L telling bikers to turn, not a sign on the road that we should have turned onto to correctly follow that road. We ended up following Hwy L for far too long on that busier road to Lake Nokomis, where we rediscovered the gravel trail again.
However, the Windmill ice scream shop @ Lake Nokomis is outstanding!! :)
It's any easy tide from Amherst to Scandinavia. Once at Scandinavia there is a little bakery in town to recharge at. So far one of my favorite rides.
Completed the entire 25 miles today. It was beautiful. First thought was it’s narrow and curvy on a lot of the trail. I biked it so I went slower than usual not knowing what lay ahead. Lots of road between the trails. Watch very carefully for the green circle signs tho. Many trails split off I had to backtrack twice. I enjoyed it and the scenery for the most part was beautiful.
Make sure to follow the Bike signs. Going North from Tomahawk, the trail makes a hard right onto a paved road. It’s easy to keep going straight onto the snowmobile trail which is private property.
Rode with hybrid bikes and did fine. No sign of ATV use on this portion now. Could be in a little better shape, but it is pretty and remote, and the sounds of the rapids from the Wolf river was a happy bonus. The trees down in the woods from the tornado in 2019 was devastating.
Pleasantly surprised! One of the best scenic trails we’ve traveled on. A tad bumpy in spots but overall easy to travel for a gravel trail.
We parked at the dog park and it was about a .25 mile walk (turn right when leaving the dog lot) to the trail. The trail is gravel and very similar to the Tomorrow River Trail...same gravel, long, straight and relatively flat. Very easy to walk and follow. Not good for sightseeing. Seemed a lot more windy on the trail then at the dog park. ¿¿¿¿¿
We biked this trail and the scenery was breath taking. Loved the trestle bridges which were well marked with a sign saying the length of the bridge and what waterway the bridge went over. The trail is well maintained with crushed gravel, picnic tables along the route, and is well marked with signs. Highly recommend this trail. We will definitely go back.
Well maintained trail that takes you through different scenery. For an extra stop you can hop off the trail onto Tomorrow River Rd and head into Amherst to visit Central Waters Brewery. Biggest downside is the unfinished trail in Amherst Junction that lead to some confusion, and once into Waupaca county we had to turn around due to trees being down over the trail (from the major storms earlier this summer).
A wonderful trail. I rode 700x40 tires. Starting in Crandon will test if you brought big enough tires. A few miles out it isn't very chunky rock. Overall, well worth the ride.
I rode from Anston(west of Howard) to Shawano Lake .. 46 miles round trip. Comparing Brown county section to Shawano county... Brown county is a much easier section. The trail is pretty much all hard dirt with some areas of refreshed crushed gravel going through Pulaski. The recently downed trees from storms have been cut from the trail. The trail is mostly in trees so not too much hot sun and wind isn’t a riding factor. Shawano county is not really hard, but it is harder than Brown County. I’m no pro but I do ride about 3 times a week and this section was a workout. Glad I had a little wider tire as the surface type kept changing throughout from crushed cinder, grassy path, crushed stone and hard dirt. There were some soft muddy areas from recent rains. Some areas the trees were growing in over the trail and could use some trimming back. Shawano had a lot of deer or horse flies. Bring bug spray, I did not and they bite. Overall it was a good ride.
We road the Hiawatha Bike Trail in July of 2019. It has beautiful Northwoods scenery. Sara Park at the trailhead provides plenty of parking and restroom facilities. We found the trail well maintained and marked.
