The Root River Pathway uses a combination of off-road trail and on-road route to form a crescent around the City of Racine. The trail closely follows the bends of the Root River, making it a great place to appreciate the waterway’s natural beauty. Signposts along the way educate trail users about the river’s significant role in the development of modern-day Racine.
The trail also links together a number of city parks, including Cedar Bend, Horlick, Lincoln, Colonial, Brose, Island and Belle City. At Layard Avenue, connect to the MRK Trail to travel north along an active rail line to the Village of Caledonia. At the Main Street bridge in downtown Racine, take the Lake Michigan Pathway to follow the city's scenic lakeshore.
Parking for the Root River Pathway can be found at most of the city parks along the trail’s route.
