Flat, paved trail along the lake next to the art gallery and Discovery Center. It's windy and cooler than the rest of Milwaukee, so be prepared for that.

A really nice, mostly flat trail that's great for beginners to advanced riders. We got on at Estabrook Park & rode up to Mequon, then doubled back closer to Milwaukee to have lunch at Eagle Park Brewery (see separate review for EPB, which was great!)....More

We rode about 10 miles on this trail. It was nicely paved and scenic. It seems to be very popular with walkers and bikers.

We bike on this trail every year in the Oak Creek area. Safe and clean. You can travel from Racine County Line all through Oak Creek and deep into Milwaukee. If you enjoy bicycling this is a must.

This is a very nice and well-maintained trail in Milwaukee. We walked it near the Milwaukee Art Museum and Veteran's Park. Even on a warm day, it can be blustery and cold next to Lake Michigan. Bring a jacket!
