Old Plank Road Bike Trail, Wisconsin (WI)

A 17-mile multipurpose recreation trail that parallels Highway 23 from Sheboygan to Greenbush where it connects with the Ice Age National Trail in the beautiful Kettle Moraine State Forest.


Wooden planks made the best roads in the mid-1800s. Wood was plentiful on the frontier and by laying down planks, all weather roads were built. Floods of immigrants headed west from Wisconsin's lake shore ports kept their feet and wagon wheels out of the mud thanks to plank roads.

The Old Plank Road Trail parallels Hwy. 23 - the original plank road route. This award-winning trail accommodates walkers, runners, bicyclists, nordic skiers, rollerbladers, horseback riders and snowmobilers on 8 feet of asphalt and 8 feet of turf.
