Ahnapee State Trail

The Ahnapee State Trail is a 30-mile former railroad bed from Sturgeon Bay south to Algoma and Casco in Kewaunee County. The trail follows the meanders of the Ahnapee River along farm fields, meadows, marshes, bogs and grasslands. It’s a quiet walk or bike ride through some beautiful habitat that attracts many interesting and colorful birds, as well as deer, fox and other native wildlife. Summer butterflies are abundant. The Ahnapee is a multi-use trail that welcomes hikers, bikers and horseback riders in summer, and X-C skiers and snowmobilers in winter. Remember, those on foot always have the right of way.

Directions: From Hwy 42-57 south of the ship canal in Sturgeon Bay turn south on Neenah Ave, then east on Leeward to the Ahnapee trailhead and parking area.
