The Peace Trail is a scenic tree-shaded route paralleling the Rock River and an active rail line in southern Wisconsin's Janesville. At its northern end, the pathway merges with the Rock River Parkway Trail, which continues east another 2.5 miles along the river. From here, trail-goers can cross County Highway D (Afton Road) to enter Rockport Park, a picturesque open space offering trails, a pool, concession stands, restrooms, a historic farmstead and the Peace Park Playground.
Future plans include extending the trail south to Beloit.
Trailhead parking is available at the trail's southern end adjacent to the Janesville Wastewater Plant at the end of Tripp Road. At its northern end, the Fisher Creek parking lot is available near the intersection of County Highway D (Afton Road) and W. Rockport Park Drive. Parking is also available in Rockport Park (2801 Rockport Road).
