Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Heralded as the “City of Festivals,” this metropolitan area is know for its rich ethnic heritage and breweries that grace the beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline. Visiting the oldest city in Wisconsin, the ramble makes a loop around the Milwaukee River, up to the northern end of the city, then circles back along the bluffs above the Lake Michigan shoreline. After starting at the Urban Ecology Center, you will be offered a medley of parks and old settlements (now suburbs) to ride through. Along the way visit a community first named for the sighting of an albino deer and another village named for the river and hills there.

Closer to the bluffs enjoy cruising down Lake Drive past many large turn-of-the-twentieth-century homes. Next you pass an early settlement named for the whitefish that were frequently spotted in the bay. Coasting into the downtown area, enjoy the historic architecture and modern sculptures as you cross the river and circle back to the north. With a small climb up the hill, you ride next to the Beer Barrel Line Trail back to the start. Now that you have had a taste of Milwaukee, it’s time to indulge."
