Brooke Street Trail Description

Fond du Lac's Brooke Street Trail follows a former rail corridor from the community's southern reaches to an endpoint not far from scenic Lake Winnebago. The city's location relative to the lake, which is never in sight from the trail but close enough for an easy side jaunt on local streets, gave Fond du Lac its unique French name, translated as "Bottom of the Lake."

The trail itself parallels Brooke Street for the northern half of its route, hence its name. Unlike the Wild Goose State Trail just a few blocks south, the Brooke Street Trail is markedly urban in nature. Trail users will appreciate the smooth asphalt surface, but should be careful at the several at-grade crossings along the way.

Connect to the Downtown Trail where the Brooke Street Trail crosses the Fond du Lac River for a more scenic stroll or ride along the waterway.

The trail is also part of a network called the Fond du Lac Loop, spanning more than 15 miles and encircling the city. Other trails in the system include the Prairie Trail, Peebles Trail, and Harbor View Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

There are no official parking areas for the Brooke Street Trail, but parking is plentiful along city streets. Be sure to observe any posted parking restrictions.
