Kenosha County Bike Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Kenosha County Bike Trail is open in two sections separated by dense neighborhoods in the City of Kenosha.

The northern segment runs northeast from 35th Street in the city to 1st Street at the Kenosha–Racine county line. The surroundings become increasingly rural as you head north, and trees along the corridor provide welcome shade in the summer months. Near the private Kenosha Country Club, the trail passes close to the Pike River.

At the county line, the trail seamlessly morphs into the North Shore Trail, which extends farther northward into the City of Racine.

The southern segment travels from the south side of the City of Kenosha at 89th Street south to the Wisconsin–Illinois state line at Russell Road. Tract housing and open space make up the adjacent surroundings for this portion of the trail, but trees enveloping the corridor provide shade and a sense of seclusion.

At the state line, a bridge over Russell Road offers a car-free connection to Illinois’ Robert McClory Bike Path. That trail extends south to Highland Park, connecting to a number of other trails in the northern suburbs of Chicago along the way.

Both portions of the Kenosha County Bike Trail are also components of the Pike Bike Trail, a signed collection of on- and off-road routes around the City of Kenosha.

Parking and Trail Access

There are no official parking lots for the Kenosha County Bike Trail, but parking can generally be found on neighborhoods streets in the City of Kenosha.

For the southern segment, parking is also available at Anderson Park on 22nd Avenue. Take the sidewalk along 89th Street west from the park to reach the northern trailhead.
