love the river and wildlife
I rode along the Hank Aaron Trail as they were developing it into what it is today. I haven't been through since they finished the miller park way/canal street areas but i remember it being a beautiful hidden trail. Once you get past Palermo's it was kinda gross with the bio pool and warehouses along the trail nearing Potowatomi but i'm not sure how that's changed in 3 years or more since I was there... I know the part nearer Miller Park was a beautiful river trail with wildflowers galore and cool little bridges crossing over to woodsy areas.
This trail is awesome, with the exception of the industrial area of the Menomonee valley.
