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

This trail is great! The trail itself is well taken care of and great for riding bikes. Some very nice rest stops along the way as well :)

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
