Fox River, East River, Baird Creek, and Friendship Trails

The Fox River State Trail heads from the confluence of the East and the Fox Rivers in Green Bay to the south along the Fox River. The East River Trail connects to the Fox River Trail in downtown Green Bay. The Baird Creek connects to the East River Trail. And, near the southern trail head of the Fox River Trail, the Friendship State Trail connects Forest Junction and Brillion.

The Fox River Trail is the mainline of these. It is wide and paved with asphalt making a smooth ride for any type of bicycle. In Green Bay the trail is near to many shopping districts with restaurants and cafes. The East River trail is more of a winding commuter path through residential neighborhoods and parkways. Baird Creek heads west from downtown towards I43 through a forested parkway.

These combined trails are among the longest and best paved bike trails in Wisconsin. Only the Oak Leaf Trail system in Milwaukee can boast more miles - but many of those miles are disconnected. The Green Bay trails offer a seamless way to explore Green Bay by bike off of roadways.
