There are numerous access points to this 32 mile trail. Most of the trail passes through farmland, woods, and marshes. You do get to ride next to the Fox River in Oshkosh. Only one place to eat on the trail (Fratellos in Oshkosh). Even fewer restrooms. It's an easy trail with little elevation and in good shape.

Great trail to be able to connect from Hortonville to Oshkosh and even downtown to the restaurants in Oshkosh. Its great to bike, walk, hike or take the kids and walk the dog. The only downside is there is not many bathrooms along the way. A great way to enjoy nature and all the sights and sounds. Many parking spots... More

I rode the north section on 8/22/15 and was pretty disappointed. Trail is Rough, poorly signed and contains a road section that is too hilly for the casual rider. I have rode all the Wisconsin State Bicycle Trails, and this one rates near the bottom. This trail should NOT be rated as a bicycle touring trail. I ride a hybrid... More

Great place for a walk with your dog, bike ride, or just a walk...and not too busy. The walk by Lake Butte des Morts is my favorite and then it's an easy bike ride into Oshkosh and lunch at Fratellos, Ground Round, among others

This is a nice trail for biking or walking. However, you do have to be careful on some of the bridges where people fish & don't notice bikes coming or people leave their dogs off leash and you can't tell where they are going to walk. Some areas get muddy after a rain where there is little or no crushed... More

Nice trail that runs from downtown Oshkosh to Shawano. It just depends on how far you want to ride for the day. If you go through Oshkosh there are several plac s to stop for a drink or lunch and as you go north out of town not so many mostly little farm towns.

On one side you see the water. On the other side the back of storage facilities, the university, parking lots, nothing attractive whatsoever. I would recommend a walk along Winnebago lake above this disappointing "trail". (It's a paved road.)

We always travel with our bikes in tow for situation like this. We rode the trail with many family members on one day up near Hortonville and then we rode it another day with just us and our little dog in the front basket. A little hot that day, but we enjoyed frequent stops in the shade. Some friendly folks... More
