Starkweather Creek Path Description

The Starkweather Creek Path traces the waterway north from the Capital City State Trail through Madison’s eastern neighborhoods of Starkweather, Worthington Park, Eken Park and Carpenter-Ridgeway. The scenic trail also features two dedicated bridge crossings over busy Washington Avenue/US 151 and Aberg Avenue/State Route 30.

Just south of the sprawling Bridges Golf Course, the Starkweather Creek Path splits into two segments. Follow the trail west along Aberg Avenue to reach Oscar Mayer Park, a four-diamond baseball and softball complex. The trail is so-named because it is across Packers Avenue/SR 113 from an Oscar Mayer plant.

Stay north on the trail from Aberg Avenue to skirt the eastern edge of the golf course. Along the way, you’ll pass Madison Area Technical College’s Robin Roberts Baseball Field and ultimately end at the WolfPack’s softball complex on Anderson Street.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Starkweather Creek Path can be found at Madison Area Technical College’s athletic facilities on Anderson Street and Straubel Street, as well as at Oscar Mayer Park on North Street (north of Myrtle Street).

Lights out

There are 2 crucial lights out between creek bridge & Bridges golf course.
It is very scary.
It happened last year & it took a full year to replace. It is very dangerous....
my only complaint
