Kiwanis Bike Trail Description

The Kiwanis Bike Trail, named for the Kiwanis Club that spearheaded the effort to build the trail, parallels the western bank of the Rock River through the southern Wisconsin community of Janesville. The northern half of the trail is heavily wooded, while its southern half runs through the busy center of the city.

The trail ends at in Riverside Park, which dates back to 1922 and provides views and access to the river with scenic overlooks, picnic spots, a boat launch, and fishing areas. The Riverside Golf Course is also located here.

Note that a few short segments of the route, especially on the trail’s southern end and also within Riverside Park, are on-road.

At its southern end, you can easily connect to the Spring Brook Trail, which curves around the city’s east side, or head west along the Rock River Parkway Trail. All three trails are part of the Ice Age Trail, a hiking trail network that spans the state.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the Kiwanis Trailhead located adjacent to Mercy Hospital, near the intersection of N. River Road and Mineral Point Avenue.

Parking, restrooms, and water are available at the north end of the trail in Riverside Park (2200 Parkside Drive). On the other side of the river, Jeffris Park (850 Beloit Avenue) also offers parking near the southern end of the trail (via the Spring Brook Trail).
