Powerline Trail (WI) Description

Stretching east-west through the City of Greenfield, the Powerline Trail is a new shared-use path that offers multiple recreation and transportation opportunities for locals and visitors alike. The developing multiuse trail serves as an important transportation link for the surrounding communities, providing a safe and efficient route for pedestrians and cyclists to access residences, businesses, workplaces, schools, parks, and the area's existing trail system.

The first phase of the Powerline Trail opened in 2022 and is almost three miles long. At its western end, the paved trail connects with the Oak Leaf Trail by the intersection of 105th Street and Cold Spring Road, near Kulwicki Park. Heading east along Cold Spring Road and under the highway overpass, the route briefly heads north before turning to continue its path west. 

The trail runs through the WE Energies power line corridor, which is located between Howard Avenue and Cold Spring Road in Greenfield. There is a rest stop where the trail crosses 68th Street. The eastern end of the trail is by the intersection of S 60th Street and W Waterford Court at Armor Park in Milwaukee. 

The construction of the second phase of the Powerline Trail is scheduled for 2024. From the current eastern endpoint on 60th Street, the trail will continue through the WE Energies power line corridor to 35th Street, where it will enter Pond View Park. There will also be a connection to the Zablocki Park from where the trail crosses 40th Street.

The trail is accessible via public transportation including Milwaukee's public transit system (MCTS). Use the trip planning feature on their website or visit the TrailLink map for all transit options near the trail.
