The Oak Leaf Trail encompasses just over 116 miles, crosses fields, skirts lakeshores, passes golf courses, and cuts through the urban landscape. There are more than 30 access points that are scattered around metro Milwaukee, and the multi-use trail is equally popular with local commuters and curious tourists.
The trail is mostly asphalt, making it safe for strollers, bicycles, and in-line skates. Part of the route follows the historic Chicago and Northwestern rail line that made Milwaukee the gateway to the west a century ago. The trail also follows the shore of Lake Michigan and passes some of its nicest beaches.
