The Ahnapee State Trail in northeast Wisconsin provides a scenic 45-mile journey between Sturgeon Bay and Kewaunee, featuring a tour of water bodies along the Door Peninsula. It also overlaps two sections of the Ice Age Trail (totaling about 17 miles): from Kewaunee to just shy of Luxemburg, and from Algoma on the shores of Lake Michigan to Sturgeon Bay. The Ice Age Trail is a 1,200-mile hiking route across the state and a National Scenic Trail.
