New Petrifying Springs Bike Trail

New Petrifying Springs Bike Trail

Bruce Thompson, researcher for the Milwaukee and SE Wisconsin Bike Map, rode the new trail connecting the Kenosha County Bike Trail with Petrifying Springs Park, and sent in the above update. Petrifying Springs or “Pets” is a great jumping off point for a number of bike rides, including the 44 mile downloadable Kenosha route by Bikeverywhere. The connecting trail simplifies the road routes in the area and keeps riders away from traffic. Those changes are reflected in the image above and will show up on the next update.
