A nice trail, anyone who is new to MKE I would recommend at least once. Not something to do in winter.

The highlight of my visit to MILWAUKEE was biking the Lakefront Trail. The views of Lake Michigan are fantastic, truly a wonderful way to make use of the waterfront. There are some beautiful homes along Lake Michigan too. Biking around here is a blast! I'm really impressed with the friendliness of MILWAUKEE and it's outdoor charm.

MKE has one of the best waterfronts in the US --- and you can enjoy it from the Lakefront Trail, whether you're biking, walking or rollerblading. (Segway tours available too) Enjoy the spectacular views of Lake Michigan. Stop at the Harbor House if you want to take a break, and enjoy the view of the Art Museum, or have a... More

Nice paved trail alongside lake with good views of the lake and downtown. On a beautiful day, taking a stroll on it or biking along the trail is just great.

The Lakefront Trail is located right on the bank of Lake Michigan, near downtown Milwaukee. It passes the Milwaukee Art Museum, Veteran's Park, and the McKinley Marina. The Lakefront Trail used to be called the Milwaukee 76 Trail to honor the bicentennial but the name was changed for some unknown reason. The trail is wide and is paved (it is... More

We took a short trip to Milwaukee to go the the Harley Davidson Museum, and brought our bikes along. The morning we rode along Lake Michigan was gorgeous! It was a beautiful place with a nice big path for riders and runners. The scenery was outstanding. It was safe and easy to get to from our downtown hotel.

this is a nice paved trail that is wide enough for the roller bladers, the bikers, the joggers, and the casual walkers to share. It was a beautiful day and I loved watched the sailboats on the lake as well as a variety of birds on the water. There was a bench available every few feet it seemed, which was... More

Nice walking/bike path durning the daytime. If you go out there at night be aware of your surroundings. If you are with a group at night will not be a problem.

The Milwaukee Lakefront Trail used to be called the Milwaukee 76 Trail to honor the bicentennial, but many of the trails that run through the city are now called the Oak Leaf Trail. There's this one that runs along the lake; another runs along the river, and still others through some of the city parks. My wife and I walked... More
