In the eastern part of Green Bay, one can put together a quite pleasant run around the paths of the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay campus and the adjacent Coflin Arboretum. Circle Drive makes a loop around the campus (not great for running — no sidewalk). Inside Circle Dr. are pleasant pedestrian paths around the campus, while the Arboretum trails are just outside Circle Dr. Another highlight is the Shorewood Cross Country Course, originally a 9-hole golf course that was repurposed as a running course in 2022! Fun woods and rolling hills. It’s off N Circle Dr., just north of the Weidner parking lot.Another highlight is the Coflin Arboretum, which surrounds the UWGB Campus with 300 acres of forests, prairies, ponds, and creeks. There are 6 miles of trails, mainly on a bark surface. The trails are generally on the east, south, and west sides of Circle Drive. TRAIL MAP
Unfortunately, the surrounding waterfront roads, Nicolet Dr. & East Shore Dr. lack a sidewalk and have narrow shoulders.
