I enjoyed this hike. Lots of little break offs to explore and nice connections to the river. There was a lot of bush and the trail of wasn’t super well kept. And the BUGS WERE HORRIBLE!!! I was covered in bug bites by the time I left so if you do this trail don’t forget your big spray!!

good for quick runs.

The Arboretum is 40 acres of urban nature uniquely managed as an outdoor classroom, research site and public sanctuary - free for everyone to enjoy! The Arboretum is all about connecting people with nature in their neighborhood, and provides many community and ecological benefits, including:

Expanding the outdoor classroom used by Urban Ecology Center educators. Increasing diversity of native plant species that provide a source of seed stock for the region and provide a better habitat for native wildlife. Improving water quality and reducing storm water runoff by replacing invasive species with deep-rooted native species. Increasing opportunities for ecological research in a unique urban environment. Increasing community access to the Milwaukee River with a path accessible to those with limited mobility and families with strollers.
