It’s Thursday, so that means it’s time for another #stayandplaymoment. Today’s post will highlight one of our county and community’s greatest assets, the Ozaukee Interurban Trail.
The Trail connects the Ozaukee communities of Mequon, Thiensville, Cedarburg, Grafton, Port Washington and Belgium by using the existing right-of-way owned by We Energies. The Trail can be used as a commuter route for employment, businesses, industry and commerce.
Unlike many recreational trails in the State of Wisconsin, use of the Ozaukee Interurban Trail is free for everyone. The trail is intended for year round uses, such as biking, in-line skating, walking, running and cross-country skiing. Motorized vehicles including snowmobiles, and horses are not allowed on the trail.
The Trail route connects historic downtowns with natural landscapes. Views along the Trail include hardwood woodlands, wetlands, farmlands, Cedar Creek, the Milwaukee River, Lake Michigan and it is designated as a “Great Wisconsin Birding Trail”.
Just 15 minutes north of downtown Milwaukee
Less than 2 hours from Chicago, Madison and Green Bay, the Ozaukee Interurban Trail has routes for the most experienced and the more casual cyclists.
