East River Trail Description

The East River Trail winds for just over 6 miles along its namesake waterway through the communities of Green Bay, Bellevue, Allouez, De Pere, and Ledgeview. Its first section was developed in 1990 and additional sections (some disconnected from the others) were added over the years.

The trail is truly a beauty, passing through wooded areas, open fields, and several parks. Keep a lookout for deer, turkeys, rabbits, herons, red-tailed hawks, and the many other animals that call the area home. A few bridges also dot the way, offering nice stopping points to enjoy the river views.

Just a few blocks to the west, the Fox River State Trail parallels its own scenic river for 25 miles. Together, they could make for an enjoyable biking tour through Green Bay and its southern suburbs. Proposals are even in the works to join the two trails.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available in several of the parks that the trail runs through, from north to south:

  • Joannes Park (205 South Baird St., Green Bay)
  • Green Isle Park (2500 Greene Ave., Green Bay); restrooms are available here
  • Riverview Park (901 Broadview Dr., Allouez); restrooms are available here
  • Wiese Park (East River Dr. and Lebrun Rd., Allouez)
  • Ledgeview Park (3700 Dickinson Rd., De Pere)

East River Trail Reviews

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.

I LOVE the ERT! It is nice to have an urban trail that is surrounded by nature.
For the first time I have a concern about it- the waste recepticles have been overflowing since Memorial Day weekend!

I ride this trail sometimes several days a week. It is really nice on weekdays. Its can busy at certain times but never too crowded. Watch your speed on blind corners as other riders and walkers/runners may come up quick.
