Fabulous lake views and a historic statue are highlights of the Red Bird Trail.

This hike is a must-do trail. The 3.7-mile hike provides fabulous sights of one of the country's largest inland lakes. Off in the distance are sights of thriving central Wisconsin communities including Oshkosh, Neenah, Menasha, Appleton and Kaukanna.

Most of the trail is level with the exception of the segment around the quarry. The earthen path not only provides panoramic views of Lake Winnebago, it also boasts a 12-foot bronze statue of the Winnebago Indian chief Red Bird. Chief Red Bird is remembered as the tribal leader who claimed his life after he ceded land to the federal government.
