The Nicolet State Trail runs for 90 miles through three counties, numerous small communities and Nicolet National Forest in northeastern Wisconsin. Following a former railroad route used by the timber industry in the late 19th century, the heavily wooded trail begins in Gillett, about 40 miles north of Green Bay, and travels north to the state's border with Michigan, crossing the Brule River on a rehabilitated tressle bridge. On the other side of the border, a spur connects riders to the 107-mile State Line Trail.
Note that, although the trail is open for a variety of uses—including walking, mountain biking, horseback riding and cross-country skiing—the trail is most popular for snowmobiling in the winter and ATV riding at other times (permitted in the summer in Oconto county and year-round in Forest and Florence counties).
Parking is available at either end of the Nicolet State Trail: in Tipler and in Gillett at Zippel Park (150 North McKenzie Avenue), as well as in the numerous communities along the way.
