The Wiowash trail is a nice scenic trail to cycle or hike. It's well maintained and it's well used. Carl Stieger park has benches that you can sit on and enjoy the view of the fox river.

Took a bicycle ride along the lake. Very little traffic. Very scenic. Enjoyed ourselves immensely. Saw wildlife. Easy ride, level grade. Quite safe as the trail and crossing over Highway 41 were engineered very well.

Multiple places to jump on the trail. Great for running, walking or biking. Most of the trail is in open farm land.

Great trail for families, couples or singles. You can eat just off the trail in Oshkosh at planet perk or beckets. Apple bagel is also downtown Oshkosh. Park just north of hey 41 bridge and enjoy!

Lots of shade provided by the trees. Not much of an incline so it is an easy hiking trail to do with the family. Bring a book or two to help your little ones identify the flora and fauna.
