The community of Hayward boasts four miles of multi-use pathway looping through the northwest Wisconsin city. The trail winds from south to north, past residential and business areas, connecting to town amenities like schools, libraries and grocery stores.
Beginning on County Road B, the trail takes US 27 across Hayward Lake, affording views of up-and downstream of the reservoir. Turn left at Dyno Drive and continue parallel to it until it feeds into US-63. The trail sits sandwiched between the highway and Nursery Road as it heads southwest on a converted railroad bed, then curves right sharply to end up on Greenwood Lane. A bench and trash receptacle sit at the pivot point of the route. The pathway continues along the road before peeling off into the trees, emerging at Northern Waters Elementary School.
Proceed north through Hayward Middle School's athletic fields up to Johnson Avenue. Then it turns right, paralleling Johnson and 5th Streets, before making a sharp left onto Michigan Avenue. Here the trail travels in-between the Hayward Golf Course on one side and school athletic fields on the other. This brings users to Radio Hill Road. The trail follows that road to Nyman Avenue, where it begins heading north, and then south along State Route 77, past the local library to a stopping point near Hayward Court (Walmart).
You can park at the Walmart on SR 77 and Hayward Court (15594 WI-77, Hayward).
