Brown Deer Recreational Trail

Oak Leaf > Ozaukee Interurban Connector

February, 2024 by davesnyder1622

Officially part of the Milwaukee County Oak Leaf Trail system, this connector joins the Oak Leaf loop at Brown Deer Park and meets the Ozaukee Interurban Trail seamlessly at County Line Road. Combined with the Oak Leaf’s Lakefront, River Line and Zip Line segments, they provide straight, smooth pavement on railbed between downtown Milwaukee and Cedarburg, and beyond.

Peebles Trail

Crushed stone was upgraded to asphalt by the end of 2022. Much smoother ride from end to end. Still absent a direct link into Lakeside Park.

Oak Leaf Trail (Route of the Badger)

South Shore Line

November, 2023 by thejake91739

On a perfect weekday morning in early October I experienced by bicycle the South Shore portion of the Oak Leaf Trail.
I parked in the Grant Park Beach parking lot in South Milwaukee and headed north to Cupertino Park and then back, a distance of about twelve miles. Even though it was such a short ride it took me over two hours since I had to frequently stop for the awesome photo ops. The views of the lake and the Milwaukee skyline are sensational!
The trail is obviously beloved by the community. Not only were there plenty of other bicyclists, but there were a tremendous amount of friendly pedestrians walking their dogs or getting their steps in, especially in Bay View Park.
The South Shore portion of the trail has so much to offer: woods, tree lined streets with charming homes, wildflowers, squirrels, geese, shoreline, lots of curves, five parks, yachts, and plenty of benches to take in the marvelous views of Lake Michigan and the downtown skyline. Besides the lake views, I especially enjoyed the curvy trail covered in golden leaves through the woods of Grant Park.

TWO WORDS OF WARNING:
1) There are hills.
2) There are cracked and uplifted portions of trail through the woods of Grant Park due to tree roots. They will effectively work like speed bumps and slow you down a bit.

However, all in all, this is an enjoyable ride and certainly worthy of your time and five stars!

Mascoutin Valley State Trail

Meh..

September, 2023 by the_masseuse

A nice trail, well kept, just a little boring. I’m sure it’s time to shine is true fall with the leaves in full force. 0 bathrooms and tons of little black bugs atm.

Bugline Trail (Route of the Badger)

Excellent trail ride

September, 2023 by jcook1950_tl

trail is in perfect condition and while there were a fair number of users, it was never crowded or congested on this saturday morning. It was a joy to ride roundtrip from menomonee falls to north lake. The only steep hill is in merton just east of dorn road. The small towns of sussex and lannon have some taverns that look interesting. Menomonee park above the north part of the trail just west of lannon road is worth a visit.

Glacial Drumlin State Trail (Route of the Badger)

Seven Waters Bike Trail (Route of the Badger)

Meyer Park to N Browns Lake Dr - 14m Round Trip

August, 2023 by theinonen

I really enjoyed my ride today! Started at Meyer Park in Wind Lake. I parked facing the baseball fields; bathroom building on the left, trail followed the baseball field around to the right. The connection to the main trail wasn't far. This is the one place the sign said Seven Waters Bike Trail. I turned right to head toward Burlington. It was crushed limestone but very packed down. My hybrid handled it great and I feel like road tires would be fine. The tail end of the crushed limestone section became crushed asphalt like someone else mentioned in their review. It's not as packed down; thicker, but still totally fine with the hybrid tires. I don't know how this section would be with road tires but it was also not very long. Once you hit Bunker bar on Beck Dr, it's paved all the way to N Browns Lake Dr which is south of Case Eagle Park in Rochester (it's probably paved further; this was where I turned around). There's a small road stretch at Beck Dr and it was clearly marked "Bicycle Route." Case Eagle Park is a great rest stop and again, had good signage. It has bathrooms, dog park, kayak/canoe launch; the river is right there and pretty for a pit stop. People were walking in the rocky section of the river and even fishing. All the trail signs (minus the one at Meyer Park) said Racine County Bicycle Trail. It's flat for the most part. I'm not super in shape and have taken just a few flat bike rides this summer, and this roundtrip of 14m was pretty easy. It was a warm day with a breeze. I felt there were a lot of shady parts on the trail. It was a Saturday afternoon in August and I passed some people but for the most part, I was the only one around (it was not crowded by any means). I will most likely do this again. I liked the variety with the scenery, the bridges, and that you ride through towns and a park for bathroom stops if needed. I felt plenty safe. I agree the map on the trail was not readable; the bike trail portion is completely faded. I just used Google maps because it detects the trail. Meyer Park where I ended also has a playground, pitching cages, and it looks like you can rent the barn for parties. Nice place!

Mariners Trail

LOVE this trail...easy to ride with access to Two Rivers and Manitowoc

August, 2023 by rebeccaldurham

Recently rode this trail two times. Stayed in Two Rivers and headed into Manitowoc for dinner and lunch. Stupendous views, beautifully landscaped with floral gardens and easy access to the downtown areas of both cities.

Muskego Recreation Trail (Route of the Badger)

Ride at your own risk

July, 2023 by alladdphoto

It might be OK for a mountain bike but not for a street bike. It was very uneven and patches of loose gravel that makes you loose control of you bike. This trail needs a lot of reconditioning to make this an enjoyable experience.
