About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

This trail section is a pleasant winding trail closely following the contours of the East River through the communities of Green Bay, Bellevue, Allouez, De Pere and Ledgeview.  There are also four parks with playgrounds along the trail.

The East River Trail winds for just over 8 miles along its namesake waterway through the communities of Green Bay, Bellevue, Allouez, De Pere, and Ledgeview. Its first section was developed in 1990 and additional sections (some disconnected from the others) were added over the years.

The trail is truly a beauty, passing through wooded areas, open fields, and several parks. Keep a lookout for deer, turkeys, rabbits, herons, red-tailed hawks, and the many other animals that call the area home. A few bridges also dot the way, offering nice stopping points to enjoy the river views.

Just a few blocks to the west, the Fox River State Trail parallels its own scenic river for 25 miles. Together, they could make for an enjoyable biking tour through Green Bay and its southern suburbs. Proposals are even in the works to join the two trails.
