Seven Waters Trail Gaps Closed

Posted by Doug Shidell, May 9th, 2010

The second edition of the Milwaukee and Southeast Wisconsin map shows a gap in the Seven Waters Trail just north of Wind Lake. This gap required bicyclists to ride on the shoulder of highway 36 for a short stretch south of Muskego Dam Rd. With the opening of a new bridge this spring, the trail is continuous between Wind Lake and Muskego Dam Rd.

At the other end of the Seven Waters Trail, in Burlington, a paved trail leads southeast along the Fox River to Bushnell Park. A newly opened unpaved trail continues east from Bushnell Park. On the current edition of the map, the route of this trail is shown as the railroad track it replaced. Currently the trail ends at Vandenboom Rd, which is unlabeled on the map, but is the first road west of highway 75.
