The Wiowash Trail is built upon an old railroad right-of-way. It stretches north and south starting in Oshkosh, Wi, The flat base is perfect for walkers, hikers, bikers, horseback riders (summer) and snowmobilers, cross country skiers and snowshoeing (winter). The Winnebago county portion of the trail runs from Oshkosh north through Winnebago and Outagamie counties and halts in Hortonville. This... More

This travel runs from Oshkosh to Hortonville and there are several places to park and get on the trail. It's great for walking or biking. The trail is in great condition. I normally go on the north side of the travel towards Fond du lac and there is plenty of shade. Parts of the trail headed south have less shade... More

I use the trails ALOT for my power walks, and they are all super! Clean and beautiful, plus you get that out of town feel. It's especially great along the river! I'll be there often this summer!

Beautiful! Pretty well maintained. Connects with the friendship trail, so you really can go for miles and miles. Different small park and rides along the trail. Goes from Oshkosh up to Hortonville. During winter it turns to the snowmobile trail so don't try to ski or snoeshoe! There may be areas that aren't, but I wouldn't know. During nice weather,... More

I bike on the trail throughout the summer and walk it in the winter. The trail is fairly level seeing it is a rail trail (no more than a 5% grade) and crushed gravel and grass. I 've biked the entire trail a number of times, from Hortonville to Oshkosh and its great. Just watch out for horse poop from... More

Nice old rail trail. People with horses and dogs use it so you have to watch your step or just clean your shoes when you get home. Lots of deer, hawks, rabbits and other wildlife using the trail. Every mile or two it crosses a road so you need to look for cross-traffic. Good for cross country skiing as snowmobiles... More

I have taken advantage of the Wiowash Trail for biking during my prolonged visit to Oshkosh. What I like about it is that 1. It is wide enough for two-way traffic 2. It is mostly flat (seems to follow an old rail bed 3. It is usually not very crowded 4. It runs for over 20 miles What makes it... More

Bicycles, horses, snowmobiles [in season] and dog walking through the woods on a firmly packed dirt trail on an abandoned railroad bed. You can see and hear wildlife and see farm fields off to the side.

Love to bike the Wiowah Trail, you van bike from Oshkosh to New London, WI. Pack a lunch and water for a long ride. You can go for a short ride or full day of enjoying nature. Great place for any age rider or walker.

This is a great trail for a family bike ride...you can see a little bit of everything, and really enjoy being outdoors. This is really an asset to the city of Oshkosh, especially the additional trail that now goes over the Butte des Morts Bridge.
