Hank Aaron State Trail
For a touch of nature in the city, try this 14mi (22.5km) trail which winds through the coolest parts of Milwaukee. It comes from the Menomonee River from Lakeshore State Park, through the Historic Third Ward and beside Miller Park, before finishing at Blue Mound Road in Elm Grove. A paved trail, it’s very easy to traverse and even has informative stops where you can learn about the history, culture and nature of the area. For those looking to walk further, the Hank Aaron State Trail connects with the well-known Oak Leaf Trail.
