In Kaukana, one can put together a quite nice 10k out and back, with nearly half of the route on a scenic path with great views of the Fox River. The highlight of the route is the ~1.5 miles between Heesakker Park and Island Park.
Start in downtown Kaukana, and run for 3/4 mile west on Wisconsin Ave. to Riverside Park. It’s a wide, tree-lined street with good sidewalks and nice older homes. The next section skirts along Riverside Park. A dedicated waterfront path starts at Heesakker Park and continues as the Island Park Trail to the end of Island Park. This section is very scenic! For the return, retrace your steps.
