Oakleaf Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A surprisingly secluded trail in the midst of Milwaukee, the Oakleaf Trail has great views of Lake Michigan plus all the services and attractions a city like Milwaukee can offer.
The Chicago and Northwestern Railroad once ran along the rail bed that now carries the Oakleaf Trail. Actually, this is just a section of the Oakleaf Trail, which, in its totality, is a 90-mile system of off-road and on-street routes that travels through parkland and circles Milwaukee. This popular section offers a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle and still be close enough to the city’s attractions, parks, and restaurants to make a great day of your visit.
The Betty Brinn Children’s Museum in O’Donnell Park is always a hit with kids. Along the route is the Milwaukee Art Museum, which displays nearly 20,000 works of art. Great views of Lake Michigan and the Milwaukee River are all part of the experience."
