New Trails in the Milwaukee Area

Posted by Doug Shidell, October 6th, 2013

Three new trails opened in the Milwaukee area this summer:

  1. Three Bridges Trail. This is a linear park that acts as a branch of the Hank Aaron Trail. It runs between the Urban Ecology Center at 37th Street and the Mitchell Park domes.
  2. Southern extension of the Interurban trail from Brown Deer Park to Mill Road as part of Milwaukee County’s Oak Leaf Trail system. A Glendale trail, finished last year connects Mill Road to Sydney Pl allowing an alternative route from downtown Milwaukee to Brown Deer Park.
  3. Two new sections of the Kinnickinnic River Trail. The first runs between Washington Street and Maple Street parallel to and to the east of First Street. The second runs from Lincoln Avenue, just east of First Street, south and swinging west to Sixth Street at Rosedale St. A new bridge takes the trail across Chase Street. There is no connection at Chase. To get from the first to the second section, go east on Maple St to First Street and then  south on First to Lincoln.

It was also announced that the western portion of the Hank Aaron Trail will be closed starting next year to allow reconstruction of the Zoo Interchange.
