Fox Wisconsin Heritage Parkway

A non-profit organization dedicated to the improvement and preservation of the Fox and Wisconsin Rivers.


Fox Cities Trestle Trail/Bridge

The trestle trail spans Little Lake Butte des Morts, from Fritse Park in the Town of Menasha to the City of Menasha near the Menasha Locks. The trail is open year round and is a valuable transportation and recreational trail link between the City and Town of Menasha . It features a unique lift bridge over the Menasha Lock which was sponsored and built by Miron Construction.  The 1,600-foot long, lighted pedestrian bridge is the longest in Wisconsin and includes a center pavilion area with seating, and several fishing platforms along the way.

The award winning trestle project is part of the Wisconsin DNR’s Friendship Trail that will ultimately run from Stevens Point to Manitowoc.

Accessible either via Fritse Park in Town of Menasha on the west side of Little Lake Buttes Des Morts, or via Broad Street in Menasha on the east side. There is a small on-street parking lot at the entrance to the east side access.
