The Towpath Trail runs along the Portage Canal from the downtown to the Fort Winnebago Locksite (Indian Agents House) Towpath Trail sections 1,3 & 4 are open for hiking and biking. Section 3 was completed last fall and is very nice. Join the trail at the end of Mullet Street, go under the Railroad tracks on the walkway and enjoy a beautiful walk or ride to the Fort Winnebago Locksite. Section 2 runs from Adams Street (feed mill) to the railroad tracks. ( 3600') The final Federal Grant money was recieved in May for work on Segment 2. The city is waiting for the DNR to schedule dredging of this segement. The Portage Canal Society and PATHS are urging the city to move ahead with or without the DNR. Current status: not moving!
Negotiations continue with State Historical Society on reducing the width of the Canal between Adams Street and Railroad Tracks. So far no progress has been made. No one will write a letter!
