The CTH PP Linear Parkway Trail currently runs approximately 1.75 miles from Highland Avenue in the Village of Kohler east to Esslingen Park just outside the City of Sheboygan. The Linear Parkway was created through a road diet project that reduced 4 lanes of automobile traffic down to 2 lanes and a trail. Phase II of the project will extend the road diet east another 0.75 miles to 24th Street in the City of Sheboygan. Work on Phase II is scheduled to commence in 2022. The Parkway bisects the Taylor Drive Pathway located in the City of Sheboygan.
One of the most prominent destinations along this trail is the new John Michael Kohler Arts Center Art Preserve. Three nature parks are also adjacent to the trail. Two are owned and maintained by Sheboygan County (Esslingen Park & Roy Sebald Sheboygan River Natural Area) and one is owned and maintained by Glacial Lakes Conservancy (Willow Creek Preserve).
Parking is available at Esslingen Park and Roy Sebald Sheboygan River Natural Area.
The trail is asphalt with easy inclines and views of the Sheboygan river at Esslingen Park. At the west end, it translates onto the bike-friendly streets of Kohler with a lot of outdoor public art installations. The east end will soon extend into Sheboygan proper with an extension of the asphalt and then onto city streets with bike lanes. I made it all the way to the Sheboygan South Pier District and lighthouse - a very pleasant way to spend the morning!
