Love this trail in the evening

Great trail for biking with a couple "pit" stops along the way-Nice! Go in the evening or early morning on a hotter day.

This packed gravel rail to trail can be used by horses, walkers and cyclists. It is quite flat and goes through farmland, prairie and small wooded areas. There are no toilet facilities except the Bare Bones Brewery at the corner of County Highway Y and County Highway S near south end of the trail. Bike repair stations , courtesy of... More

I have walked, biked, snowmobiled, cross country skied (not recommended) and took the kids fishing along parts of this trail. You can go from Oshkosh to New London. It's a good way to see wildlife, and wildflowers at your leisure. Mostly flat land so not so strenuous on the joints

I will keep this brief. The trail is enormous. The sheer size alone makes it hard to rate less than three stars. If you are out for exercise, it is a decent place to visit. You will see a large amount of passers-by during peak hours though (careful for those bikes!) I'm most familiar with the trail head in Oshkosh;... More

I highly recomend that everyone take a day and ride the trail. I park down by the 41 overpass and head out from there. Check which direction the wind is comming from before you commit biking back south against a northern wind on the return trip will break the will on a hobbyist and make for a loonnnnng walk.

The trail is close by and easy to find. It loops through the University along the river. The views are great. Takes you through Lake Butte Des Morts. There is a brewery along the trail too. You can take from downtown to the country and ride by cows in 20 -30 minutes. Cross country ski and snowmobiling allowed too.

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.
