The Peebles Trail is a nearly 6-mile pathway, linking Fond du Lac at the southern edge of Lake Winnebago with St. Peter (Taycheedah) to its east. The trail also passes through the unincorporated community of Peebles for which it is named.
Roughly half of the trail (closer to Fond du Lac) occupies a former railroad corridor enveloped by thick stands of trees. Here the trail features a crushed-stone surface and is a bit more scenic than its eastern component.
At US 151, the trail merges with the paved Prairie Trail. The trails overlap on their joint route north to County Highway WH, where the Peebles Trail turns east before ultimately ending in the St. Peter area of Taycheedah.
Like many of the communities in Fond du Lac County's Holyland, St. Peter developed around a central church. From the Peebles Trail's end along County Highway WH, continue east less than a mile to reach the historic St. Peter Catholic Church at Church Road. Parking and Trail Access A large official parking area for the Peebles Trail is nestled between US 151 and Winnebago Drive in Taycheedah.
Ideal for bicycling, walking, running, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.
