Sheboygan Interurban Trail Description

The Sheboygan Interurban Trail follows the route of an electric railway that once ran between Milwaukee and Sheboygan from the early 1900s to 1951. The trail begins at Pebble Beach Road on the Ozaukee County/Sheboygan County Line and travels north to the City of Sheboygan.

The trail’s first 5.5 miles, through Cedar Grove and Oostburg, are off-road, while the remainder of the route (12 miles) is along low-volume roads. The off-road portion also runs adjacent to an active railroad.

A highlight of the journey is Kohler-Andrae State Park, located between Oostburg and Sheboygan. Resting on the beautiful shore of Lake Michigan, the park offers a sandy beach, nature center, hiking trails, and camping facilities. Farther north, the trail ends at the doorstep to Sheboygan's Lakeview Park, which also provides beach access.

On its southern end, the trail seamlessly connects to the Ozaukee Interurban Trail, which continues another 30 miles to Milwaukee.

Parking and Trail Access

On the north end of the trail, parking is available in Kohler-Andrae State Park (1020 Beach Park Lane, Sheboygan).

Mid-trail, a trailhead with parking is available on the comer of S. 10th Street and Center Avenue in downtown Oostburg.

Sheboygan Interurban Trail Reviews

There is a beautiful off-road experience waiting for you near the north end of the trail between Terry Andrae Road and Stahl Road. Park the bike or car there in the pulloff and enjoy a meadow and woodland experience. Almost all trails eventually loop back to within 100 yards of the start. You will see the Black River Forest and some of the plants and animals that call it home. It is occasionally used as a horse trail, so watch your step. I will attach photos.

Picked up the trail from Oostburg to Kohler Andre. From the pictures posted I was not expecting strictly roads running through farm country but trails that resembled the Ozaukee interurban trail. This trail was a lot more challenging than the typical rails to trails I'm used to.

Joining the trail in Oostburg, we biked due south for 10 miles thru farm country and a few swampy areas. Met a significant number of friendly riders biking at varying skill levels on a hot and humid day. Lack of restrooms anywhere along this stretch of of the trail was disappointing especially for women. I wish there would have been more scenic views but the ride was a good workout. One time would be enough!
