Helping to forge a connection between the northern and southern segments of the Kenosha County Bike Trail, the Kenosha Pike Bike Trail also has plenty to offer in its own right, giving trail users a safe and scenic means of experiencing some of the plentiful history and lakefront beauty that abounds in Kenosha. The Pike Trail is a combination of off-road paved trail segments and signed on-street bike routes, running north and south along Lake Michigan on the eastern side of the city. The trail passes through countless local parks and recreation sites, and gives trail users access to some of the historic districts and lighthouses within the city.
Nearly seven miles of the ten-plus mile route is comprised of off-road trail segments, utilizing paths through several parks along the lakeshore, including the city's Harbor Park, which is home to the Kenosha Public Museum and the city's Civil War Museum. South of the park, be sure to take a breather and check out the flower gardens and public beach when the weather is nice; numerous sandy beaches are accessible just off the trail for those who want to dip their toes in the lake. Cyclists looking for some additional mileage can use the Pike Trail to connect to the Kenosha County Bike Trail, which provides a pleasant path north to Racine or south all the way to the northern edge of Chicago.
Parking is available at numerous local parks along the trail's route, including Southport Park, the Anderson Arts Center, and Wolfenbuttel Park, all located off of 3rd Avenue. Additional parking is available at Harbor Park, Simmons Island Park, John F. Kennedy Park, Pennoyer Park, and Poerio Park at the trail's northern end (located off of 20th Avenue).
Lived in Kenosha for 3 years and would go on this trail weekly. It's incredible on the lake
