Kinnickinnic River Trail (called the KK River Trail by locals) runs just over 2 miles in southern Milwaukee, following the river through a densely populated and industrial corridor. The trail links the neighborhoods of Lincoln Village and Bay View, and offers a mixed experience of both on-road bike lane and off-road paved trail, some of which parallels an active railroad.
Its northern end, on South Water Street, lies not too far from the famed Hank Aaron State Trail, a 13-mile east-west route connecting parks, museums, public artwork, and other cultural and recreational attractions. On the Kinnickinnic River Trail's opposite end (at S. 6th Street), a connection can be made to the vast network of the Oak Leaf Trail, which loops around and through Milwaukee.
A gathering space and seating area is located on the trail’s southern end at S. 5th Court and W. Rosedale Avenue. On-street parking is available along Rosedale Street, S. Kinnickinnic Avenue, and E. Washington and S. Water streets.
