Family Friendly This trail has almost no elevation gain and an easy, crushed-rock surface, making it a piece of cake for children. That said, strollers with small wheels do not work well on the trail, so plan ahead.

Overview

This section of the Fox River Trail provides a nice option for those in the Appleton area to hop in their car and be on a trail in just a few minutes. This hike is mapped as 6 miles out and back, but those wishing to go farther or shorter can simply turn around and head back the way they came when they feel compelled. Along the route, expect to see plenty of pleasant agricultural land and pleasant trees alongside the trail.

Description

Starting at the parking area at the junction of Klaus Street and Follett Street in Greenleaf, head left (north) along the crushed limestone trail. When you decide you're ready to head back, simply about-face and return the way you came.

History & Background

The Fox River Trail sits on what used to be a railbed travelling from Green Bay down south to Hilbert.
