For this month’s We Are the World Blogfest, I’m going to share the Fox Cities trail system in the Appleton, Wisconsin area. These are some of the biking/walking trails that I utilize throughout the year, but most often in spring, summer and autumn.
I may have gushed about our trails before, but the community that also includes Neenah, Menasha, Fox Crossing, Kimberly, Kaukauna, Combined Locks and other surrounding townships, provide many miles of natural landscape, rivers, lakes and farmland. From home, I can access two trails, a few city streets and a local park that allows for a 20 mile round trip bike ride. Perfect!
To check out information on some of the trails and a map of the trails, click HERE and HERE. Between the two links, you will have an idea of the plethora of routes that are available to outdoor enthusiasts like me in the Fox Cities. Ten thousand kudos to the planners, route designers and workers who create and keep up these well-traveled trails. It’s a positive part of a growing and health-minded community.
I’ve included photos from some of my adventures, so you can enjoy the scenery.

“Welcome to the “We are the World Blogfest” (#WATWB ). The #WATWB was inspired by a simple conversation about how all the negativity on social media was weighing on us. Wanting to make a difference we decided to try to do our part to infuse social media with all the good stories that are out there. We hope to share the stories that show kindness, compassion, hope, overcoming challenges and in general, the impressive resilience of the human spirit. For every dark, negative story out there, there is a positive, heartwarming story that will add some light and lift the human spirit.” ~Belinda Witzenhausen~
