This is a very nice and well-maintained trail in Milwaukee. We walked it near the Milwaukee Art Museum and Veteran's Park. Even on a warm day, it can be blustery and cold next to Lake Michigan. Bring a jacket!

What a great ride from Thiensville on the Interurban Trail south until it joins in with the Oak Leaf. They have done a lot of work on the trail and there are so many great places to stop on your way down to the lakefront.

This trail is great for bikers or walkers. It wanders throughout the Milwaukee County area, and makes you feel like you are not in the big city.

You may be in the middle of the city, but you would never know it. The woods are calm and refreshing to ride through. The path is well maintained and you won't have to worry about cracks and potholes here.

This bike trail is great no matter what your level of biking. It is fairly flat and parallels Lake Michigan. The paved surface makes it easy to bike on for any type of bike. One word of caution, it does get busy on the weekends...More

Beautiful path. Taken care of very well. Part of it was an old railroad track that was never used. A waste of land. Now it is an excellent path for biking and walking.

You can see if that is addressed on the Milwaukee County Parks website (html is apparently not allowed in my answer).

There are a number of hotels by the Milwaukee County Airport that are close to the southern part of the trail and South Shore Drive. They tend to be about 6 or 7 miles from downtown. There are also hotels in the city that... More
