Agree that this is not a destination trail but a great path for a walk, bike, run

great 5 mile biking and walking with a black top surface trail. great views of the lake, rest areas with flower-artist gardens and at the correct time you may see the Badger ship arriving or departing the port at Manitowoc.

Nice park that takes you by the zoo- an alpaca was out to say hello too. Took me 6 years to find out Oshkosh has a sandy beach. Will definitely return- hopefully the mosquitoes will be gone!

I love this walk! Every time I come up
From GA I have to spend some time on this trail.

Nice , but more like a walk in the park , than a hike

Short and sweet.

Beautiful but a little noisy along the road

Perfect for biking and running as long as you keep moving to avoid the mosquitos. Great scenery and plenty of trail!

Nice for running or biking. Very clear and straight path. Clusters of bugs because of stagnant water from creek so not great for walks/hiking.

I love this trail. I start at the old depot in Oostburg and it's a short half mile ride south on the street to where the trail connects. I have ridden 13 miles south toward Port Washington so far and it's relatively flat with easy grades. There is about a half mile of road at Cedar Grove and one residential street crossing, and a downtown street crossing in Belgium. I would also note that Belgium has a bike repair station right on the trail with a decently equipped set of tools. This section of trail is very beautiful and I have seen a good bit of wildlife. I always do round trips when I ride unless the trail is a circle.

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.

A well maintained, wide, flat, smooth trail for biking or walking. The description above is inaccurate, however. The trail is 52 miles long, flat and EASY (it's a former rail corridor, with never more than 3% grade.). See the State DNR's accurate description here: https://dnr.wi.gov/topic/parks/name/glacialdrumlin/

scenic area, lots of good restaurants and shops if you want to stop in downtown Racine

A great bike and hiking trail between downtown Two Rivers and downtown Manitowoc. Paved and nicely landscaped. Virtually the entire length hugs the scenic Lake Michigan shoreline. Connects to the Rawley Point Trail in Two Rivers. Numerous points of interest along the way include the West of the Lake Gardens (free!), the USS Cobia submarine at the Wisconsin Maritime Museum, and two pleasant walks out to the Two Rivers and Manitowoc lighthouses.

I ran this trail out and back (9 miles). It was nice because it was flat and had some beautiful views along the way.

From AZ visiting the area. I would not even remotely consider this a "moderate" trail. Easy is the only description to describe its difficulty. That being said, it's a beautiful hike. Lots of greenery and wildlife. Quite the departure from what I'm used to in the dessert. I started at the trailhead in Cottage Grove and went 4 miles out then back. The trail goes much farther if you want. I really enjoyed this one.

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.

There is nothing better than hopping on your bike and enjoying this easy to follow trail! The description says 30 paved miles... that's not quite right. This trail connects from the paved Oak Leaf Trail in Milwaukee County and I've taken it as far as Sheboygan where it continued on to other paved bicycle routes. That's well over 30 miles, and it's a lovely, easy ride. In my opinion, the most beautiful parts of this trail are found in the 15 or 20 miles between Port Washington and Oostburg. The more Southern areas of this trail can be annoyingly crowded.

I love this trail! My Wife and I take our bikes for a ride on the Glacial Drumlin at least once every other weekend. The asphalt near Waukesha is nice, but it also draws a lot of walkers and dedicated road bikers. Once on the gravel, the trail becomes very peaceful and quiet. You can ride for hours on the gravel and not encounter another person. Just be sure to keep an eye out for the numerous potholes. There is a brief 2 mile section in the middle where the trail goes on-road, but it's short and traffic is very light.

I met a group of friends out at this trail to go for a run. It was so fun, that I returned with a friend to do some hiking. We found various animal and plant life while on our adventure! Passed some wild turkeys and also ran into a muskrat or something, I'm not entirely sure what it was. Furry. Anyway, this is a great trail, and not even that far from the city! Great for a weekend trip.

I discovered this trail while searching for new areas to complete my long distance runs for marathon training. The Interurban trail was formed from the old Interurban rail tracks, which provides for an extremely flat (paved) running surface. I ran 8.5 of trail (17 round trip), starting in Thiensville through Cedarburg to Grafton and back. Most of the trail is off-road, but there were a couple of areas that either crossed or were on city streets within Cedarburg and Grafton. I give this trail 5 stars for the purpose in which I used it. If you are looking for a more wilderness sight-seeing type trail, then it would be around 3 stars depending on where you venture unto the path. It has its own website with a downloadable map that you can find through an internet search. Enjoy!
