Seems like the only time I do reviews is when I feel like the rating is not accurate and saw Bairds Creek only had a 3.59 rating...

Of the trails in the area Bairds far and away offers the most variety...short punchy climbs, long grinding climbs, Creek crossings, tight switchbacks, root gardens, bench cut trails, bridges, even a new skinny, not to mention great scenery. For that paved section if you hug the creek you can avoid most of it.

Bairds is great for Fatbiking in the winter as well.

Customer Service

Follow the orange reflective markers, but don't be afraid to venture off the main trail.

This trail has seen a lot of improvements and is maintained. A route has been established with new signs and maps are finally available. None of the single track I ride here is paved. The paved path was added to allow visitors to enjoy a wider variety of activities in the park.. Not a bad thing in my opinion.

Customer Service

Checkout the newly published map. Not sure if they are available at the park yet but you can find it online or at several of the local bike shops in Green Bay.

I was a little dissappointed with the trail. I certainly didn't ride all of it, but what I did ride felt very segmented. Lots of small blips of fun trail, then overgrown sections that you just have to churn through... It was fun, just not quite what I was expecting. I think I'm going to stick with the reforestation camp.

Customer Service

Start at the Triangle Sports Area.

Also, it is no-where near the 'pin' in the map. Type in Beverley Avenue in your GPS to find your way there...

Don't worry about that last post, you only have to ride on pavement for a short period of time. Lots of work has been done on this trail over the last couple years to mark it and create a loop that has a nice flow to it. Only thing left is that Starbucks mentioned. This trail is more interesting and challenging than other trails in the area and is worth putting some time into. It can still be confusing after a few times out but its more fun as you get to know the main trail and where the many offshoots go.

Customer Service

Follow the blue squares which mark the trail. If you get off track it can get pretty confusing.

Similar Products Used: Reforestation camp for a different type of trail, lots of singletrack and fast.

I personally believe that Baird has some of the best "all around" trails in the NE Wisconsin area, especially on the east side of 43. There is a little something for everyone in Baird, whether you are looking for techy singletrack with bridges, wide double track to bang the big ring, sketchy descents or big dirt jumps, and believe it or not lung burning climbs. Its best to ride with someone who knows the trails although I figured them out by exploring as many as I could. Best part of all is the price, its FREE! Is a shame there is some multi-use battles going on right now, but we MTBers need to show who's using it.

Customer Service

Explore them all, definitely worth it!

Frustrated   Cross Country Rider [May 05, 2010]

Beautiful. (well, was beautiful) Variety of trails for every skill - (including winter x-country skiing). Unfortunately some try to destroy aspects of trails to meet their selfish needs. Average riders straighten turns, etc. - taking the challenge out, aggressive riders construct jumps out of logs, etc. on moderate trails making navigation difficult for average riders. But the most horrifying thing is what the city is currently doing. I'm heartsick. A large portion of the trail is being paved - OMG! Say goodbye to skiing. They've taken a Natural Jewel and are turning it into a Cheap, Dime-store Necklace. What's next, a Starbuck's?

Customer Service

Complain to Mayor Jim Schmidt for their Disneyland mentality

Baird's Creek isn't big enough to travel from any other city to ride, but if you are in Green Bay already, it is an OK place to noodle around.

Some spots are dangerous as they require super-pro rock hopping skills off of drops. An unsuspecting rider could get hurt really bad just leaving some of the parking areas.

The trail follows Baird Creek which make for pleasant scenery. Some of the trails seem to be teen-boy blazed and are tight. The main trail is open and wide. There are some steep/short areas that require good brakes for going down and strong rider for going up. 98% of the trail is pretty flat, but the 2% off hills aren't made for grandma.

Baird Creek has a good frisbee golf course that make it worthy for a day of bicycle riding, frisbee golf, and picknic.

I've been wanting to write this review for 10 years. I lived in Wi. all my life and rode Baird's since 1989. I've been there at least 500 times. I rode at least 1/2 of the trails in Wi. Moved to Tulsa 7 years ago. Rode in 4 states in 18 years and rode probably 35-40 trails and guess what?.....I miss Baird's creek BAD!!! I've driven 900 mi. the last 3 years on summer vacation to re-visit Baird's Creek (I'll be back again in 2 weeks). The "FUN" factor is unparelleled !!! It has got so much variation of terrain and fast, fun challenges that it is my "ALL TIME" favorite trail regardless of the encroachment by developers. It's like a Mtn. Bike playground (It's always changing). I HIGHLY recommend this trail !!!!!! BUT...It's not marked real well, SO either have fun "exploring" OR... contact one of the local bike shops and have someone give you a "tour" of the best trails I've ever been on !!!!! (to maximize your enjoyment level)

Gike   Cross Country Rider [Jun 29, 2007]

Quite a bit of work was done in 2006 to re-route trails off private land. Two terrain parks have "appeared" along two of the trails, both to the east of I-43. From under the Interstate, take either left or upper right trails (not along the RR tracks) and head up. As of June 29, 2007 the trails are grown in some and no major work has been done since last year. A very small % of riders are brushing back, but more help is needed. This is a gem of a system in the heart of GB! Ride it!

Customer Service

Southside trail. A point to point, two way trail on the south side of the Bairds Creek, starting/ending @ Danz Ave and the RR trestle west of I-43. Trils on the North side of Bairds are mostly ski trail and ski hill. Also all of the trails East of I-43 are awesome. For a killer hill loop, look for an uptrack right across from the lower parking lot for the ski trials. There is snaking downhill on this loop that is to die for!!

darkage   Cross Country Rider [Apr 22, 2004]

There are many diverse groups which use Baird Creek Park - bikers, walkers, dog walkers, botanists (aka "weed huggers") pot smokers, teenage beer drinkers, perverts, transients, Asian and Latino gangs, drug dealers, etc. There is one group however that needs to be driven out of Baird Creek by force if necessary. I'm talking about the paint ball people. I may not like many of the groups mentioned above, but none of them sabotage mtb trails - they may be scumbags, but at least they've learned to live and let live. As long as they leave the trails alone, I can tolerate them. Not the paintballers. They run around in their silly little outfits shooting each other (and every tree in sight) with their toy guns. They cut down live trees for their little forts. They leave garbage. They've even hauled a sofa back there for one of their little forts. When they tire of playing cowboys and indians, they mess with mountainbike trails. It's only a matter of time before they are caught and severly stomped.

Customer Service

Death to all Baird Creek paintballers. Keep out or suffer. War has been declared on you. You brought this on yourselves.
