Duck Creek Trail (WI) Description

On the western end, the Duck Creek Trail picks up where the Newton Blackmour State Trail leaves off, that is just east of the town of Seymour at Vanderheuvel Road. Traveling along an old railroad route, the trail passes through a wooded corridor among farms, paralleling State Route 54, ending shortly after the highway crosses County Road U.

Parking and Trail Access

In Seymour, street parking is available.

Duck Creek Trail (WI) Reviews

I rode the usable portion of this trail 28 August. Whoever wrote the description and did the map for this trail clearly never visited the trail. Either that or the vehicle used was a bulldozer. There is no bike trail starting at County Road FF or paralleling County Road J. There is an abandoned railroad grade but not currently usable for biking or hiking. At the eastern end the best place to start is on County Road U just before it crosses Highway 54. The gas station at this point has an area I used to get the bike ready but probably should not be used for extended parking. The trail extends northeast bound across County U for 0.6 mile, then ends at a barricade. Heading west the trail is in good shape all the way to the Newton-Blackmour trail and can be ridden with a road bike. The junction is marked with a sign. I found the trail uninteresting. Part of the way it is within sight of Highway 54, the rest is open country with little shade.

I think the previous reviewers were at the wrong location. This trail parallels hwy 54 and is a well maintained trail. Nice and wide to accommodate everyone.

Walked this trail on a sunny Spring day with temps on 30's and loved the serenity of the trail. Saw turkey, deer, rabbit and squirrel tracks and a redtail hawk. Loved the views of the farms. Best part is through the wooded corridor!

We tried to access the trail from the Hobart/Oneida end point and found this trail to be in total disrepair. One can't even see that there is a trail. A sign is posted the the Oneida nation will be restoring the trail, but no work is evident. Quite disappointing since the ride along Duck Creek would have been nice.

To start I ride a recumbent Trike. This trail though listed as crushed limestone (I have no problems with a good crushed limestone trail) consisted of grass which was not mowed, deteriorating crushed limestone with grass, moss and ruts in it. The trail is not marked anywhere. The trail head on the Green Bay/Hobart side is not marked, nor could I find it....after attempting to follow narrow pathways to private residents, I gave up on the trail head, drove north to Oneida and parked at the Assembly of God Church. I hopped on the trail. Again no trail markers....but I knew where the old rail tracks were. I rode west towards Seymour, the trail was OK but a bit boggy. I decided I would try and find the Green Bay trail head in reverse so I headed east through Oneida towards Hobart on bad, patchy limestone, full of branches, sod, ruts and moss. Just out of Oneida I came to a four way intersection with no markings. I took first one limestone path down the hill to a private residence. Rode back uphill took the other limestone path to another private residence. I returned to the intersection looked at the other remaining option which was grass about 4-6 inches high. I walked a couple hundred feet down that pathway and decided there was no way I could make my Trike ride the grass back to Green Bay. Perhaps a mountain biker would like the trail???
