Our Favorite Trails
Green Bay offers a number of beautiful trails for area runners. Here are a few of our favorites . . .
Trail Location Description
Mountain Bay Trail Green Bay to Wausau

Trailhead at Velp & Riverview

This 83-mile trail is an old railroad line converted to a beautiful biking and running recreational trail. The scenic, wooded trail is a relatively flat, pea gravel surface with mile markers posted.
Fox River Trail Downtown Green Bay to Greenleaf

Along the Fox River

Stretches 13.5 miles; approximately 5.4 miles of the urban section of the trail is asphalt-paved. Dogs are allowed on the trail (with leashes). An Annual State Trail Pass or Daily Pass is required, and can be purchased from businesses along the trail.
Cofrin Memorial Arboretum, University of Wisconsin - Green Bay UW-Green Bay campus
2420 Nicolet Drive
Green Bay, WI
The Arboretum circles the UWGB campus. About 5 miles long, it winds through dense woodlands, native prairie and past the waters of Green Bay. The trail surface is mostly pea gravel with some short paved sections. Wood chip offshoots take you right up to the Niagara Escarpment and deep into the Mahon Creek Parkway. Popular with runners and walkers, it offers a great workout close to town. The trail can be accessed from all around the campus from public parking areas.
East River Trail Green Bay to DePere

Trailhead at Greene Isle Park

This is a very scenic, 6 mile, flat, paved trail along the East River. The trail follows the curves of the river winding through woodlands and natural areas. It travels over and under three bridges and has wooden boardwalks to cross over marsh areas.
