The Fond du Lac Loop is a 15.4-mile bicycle and pedestrian pathway designed to facilitate a safe, healthy, enjoyable way for community members and visitors to explore our city.
The beauty of a Loop system is that it provides easy accessibility for Fond du Lac residents and visitors. The length is a perfect distance for an after work bike ride/walk/run with lots of alternative ways to shorten or lengthen the journey. Additionally, The Loop allows people from different parts of town to rendezvous and continue to journey together.
The FDL Loop provides an interesting variety of terrain and sights including:
- A seven mile leg along the Highway 151 bypass.
- A beautiful 2.2 mile shaded Rails to Trails pathway.
- A one mile section through Lakeside Park with bathroom facilities, food services, and of course, spectacular views of Lake Winnebago.
- A four mile urban route through downtown with all the excellent shops, restaurants, coffee shops, banks, and our wonderful library available for a visit.
- A suburban 1.2 mile bike lane through southern Fond du Lac to complete the Loop.
- A Loop connection to the town of Oakfield via a dedicated bike/pedestrian bridge crossing Hwy 41 is being completed and a connecting segment up WH to the village of St. Peter is already in place.
