Algoma is the gateway to this approximately 50-mile scenic trail connecting Casco Junction to Algoma to Sturgeon Bay. Part of the “rails to trails” initiative, the Ahnapee State Trail was previously the railroad bed of the Ahnapee & Western Railroad and has been converted to a crushed limestone surface that can be used for walking, running, biking, hiking, horse-back riding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. Dogs are permitted on a leash, horses from April 15 – November 15, snowmobiles in the winter when the DNR deems them open. There is no usage fee.
Parking areas are available on the corner of 6th and Perry St (County S) and on County Highway M just north of the city, which also serves as the entrance to the northern portion of the 1000-mile Ice Age National Scenic Trail.
