Newton Blackmour State Trail - Grand Opening

LocationAn official ribbon cutting ceremony will be held in Shiocton on August 2 at 1 p.m. to mark the opening of 14 additional miles of the Newton Blackmour State Trail in Outagamie County. Local dignitaries will speak and bike safety events will be held for children. The ceremony will be held at Lake Park, immediately adjacent to the trail in the Village of Shiocton.
The Newton Blackmour State Trail now spans 22 miles on a former rail corridor in Outagamie County. The trail name is derived from the four newton_blackmour_trailcommunities the trail passes through: New London, Shiocton, Black Creek and Seymour. The trail's eastern end in Seymour connects to the Duck Creek Trail, which travels east towards Green Bay for five miles.
The trail roughly parallels State Highway 54 between New London and Seymour. Seymour is about 17 miles west of Green Bay and 20 miles north of Appleton.
The 22-mile trail is located between House Road in New London and Vandenheuvel Road in Seymour. Accommodations, parking and services are available in communities along the trail.
