The Fox River State Trail is a 25-mile multiple-use state recreation trail that runs between downtown Green Bay and Ott Road, which is located about 1 mile north of Hilbert. The southern portion of the trail south of Heritage Road is 7.7 miles long and permits horseback riding on bridle paths along side the trail corridor.
Access to the trail is at Heritage Rd off of Cty Rd PP near De Pere and north of Forest Junction on Holmes Road. There is a large gravel parking lot off of Holmes Road for parking. The horse trail and regular limestone trail briefly join to cross a waterway, but the rest of the horse trail runs parallel to the regular trail.
The trail from Center Road to Ott Road is closed for the deer gun hunting season. Please do not use that section of trail at all during that time period.
The trail can be used for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. No motorized vehicles are permitted during the hiking, biking, and horseback riding season. In winter this trail is part of the Calumet County snowmobile trail system. There is no charge for the Calumet County portion of the Fox River Trail.
