Great trail for families, couples or singles. You can eat just off the trail in Oshkosh at planet perk or beckets. Apple bagel is also downtown Oshkosh. Park just north of hey 41 bridge and enjoy!

Lots of shade provided by the trees. Not much of an incline so it is an easy hiking trail to do with the family. Bring a book or two to help your little ones identify the flora and fauna.

Easy trail with nice romantic stops by the lake. There are many different trail options for those who like to walk far trails and also for those who don't.
