Appleton’s Newberry Trail follows the Fox River, its navigational canal locks and an active rail line at different points during its scenic trek. The area was once an industrial hub, but mature trees now provide shade and a sense of serenity to trail users.
Railfans will want to stop east of S. Lawe Street to check out the adjacent rail corridor’s swing bridge over the canal. Just past the bridge, trail users can access Lawrence University’s athletics facilities, including the unique Banta Bowl. The stadium, home to the college’s football program, is nestled inside a natural ravine.
In Telulah Park, Newberry Trail users will find a playground, skate park and disc golf course, as well as picnic pavilions, baseball diamonds and soccer fields. A restored Soo Line steam engine reminds park visitors of the area’s railroad history.
Continuing east from the park, the trail passes through a neighborhood before meeting the CE Trail at County Highway CE and S. Matthias Street.
Parking for the Newberry Trail is available at Telulah Park on E. Newberry Street.
