The Lake Country Recreation Trail is a Waukesha County trail that runs east to west from Waukesha to Oconomowoc. It is partially on an old railroad ROW, so it is relatively flat, though there are a few good hills in the middle section. The trail is completely paved, and shares a few public roads. The Lake Country Trail is located on the former Milwaukee-Watertown Interurban Railway. It was popular in the late 1800s as a direct link between Waukesha and the Oconomowoc Lake Country and utilizes the Wisconsin Electric Power Company right-of-way.

It's not a destination trail... but if you are visiting elderly parents in the Oconomowoc area and need some exercise this has you covered. Take a backpack and bring home yarn from Delafield!
It made my legs burn a couple of times and it was interesting to find out exactly where it went.

it's OK if you liked paved straight "trail". It is not a hiking trail.

Took my kids and not a bad trail. Not really for a first timer out especially in the stretch going away from the lake but still enjoyable.

Great trail from the Landsberg Center trailhead at the Country Springs Hotel in Waukesha, through the Cities of Pewaukee and Delafield, Village of Summit and City of Oconomowoc.
Some scenic hills, and nice stopping points at Naga Waukee Park, downtown Delafield and Roosevelt Park.
