The Lake Country Recreation Trail is located on the former Milwaukee - Watertown Interurban Railway. It was popular in the late 1800's as a direct like between Waukesha and the Oconomowoc lake country. This 13-mile recreation trail now utilizes the Wisconsin Electric Power Company right-of-way. It stretches between Roosevelt Field Park in downtown Oconomowoc and Cushing Park in the City of Delafield.
