North East Wisconsin Trails (NEWT) is a 501(c)3 non-profit representing trails across northeast Wisconsin. Established in the spring of 2013, NEWT currently supports trail systems in Kewaunee County, Brown County, Outagamie County, and Waushara County. We are an IMBA- affiliated group (International Mountain Biking Association) and while a majority of our members are mountain bikers, we are dedicated to multiuse singletrack that accommodates many different types of users; bikers, hikers, trail runners, snowshoers, etc.
We are a 100% volunteer run and community supported organization. Without our volunteers and community sponsors, the wonderful trail systems we ride and support in northeast Wisconsin would not be a reality. Our mission is to expand and maintain access in northeast Wisconsin to sustainable, multi-use trails designed purposefully for mountain biking. We aim to work with and educate all trail users and land managers about the benefits of cycling, proper trail etiquette, and sustainable trail design. We celebrate our shared joy for mountain biking with fun, family friendly trail riding events.
Over the last few years, we’ve expanded our trail systems, on boarded a new trail club, and hosted two IMBA Trail Care Crew visits. The future for mountain biking in NE Wisconsin is bright as we look at expanding our current trail systems, adding new trails at new properties.
In the summer of 2020 we merged our two organizations; NEWT and FVMTB (Fox Valley Mountain Bikers) into one under the NEWT name to increase the impact we have together.
More trails, better trails. North East Wisconsin Trails.
