Biking in Milwaukee

October, 2018

Enjoy Fall Colors By Bike

on the Ozaukee Interurban Trail,

Oak Leaf Trail and Hank Aaron Trail

The Ozaukee Interurban Trail is a 30-mile paved trail that spans the length of Ozaukee County and is designed for biking, in-line skating, walking and running.

     The trail route connects historic downtowns with natural landscapes.

     The route is based on the Interurban railway that  linked Milwaukee and surrounding communities from 1905 to 1951.

     On the south end, the trail ends at the start of the Brown Deer Recreational Trail where riders can tap into the Oak Leaf Trail.

 The trail features 118 miles of multiple loops through all the major parkways and parks in the system. Loops are composed of off-road paved trails, park drives, and municipal streets where necessary to ensure continuity. A great starting point is  at the Milwaukee Art Museum, then traveling either north or south on the trail from there.

     The Hank Aaron State Trail provides a key link through the heart of Milwaukee County, including the Menomonee Valley and Third Ward. Starting at Lakeshore State Park along Lake Michigan, it eventually will connect to the Milwaukee/ Waukesha county line.
