Trails are too confusing to navigate. We got lost a couple of times.

I grew up in this area, and it was one of my favorite, easy and accessible trails to enjoy. They have a smaller paved circle right in front of the trails for small, short and wheel chair accessible trail. Then a beautiful hill you can go up to see a wonderful view. Lots of cool trails, and not that difficult. The Inside part of the building is cool too.

Excellent spot to bring kids! Enough variation in scenery and terrain to keep it interesting and trail distances great for the younger set.

Beautiful little hike. Family friendly. Nice open fields, forest and wetlands. Saw plenty of critters, including a few deer. Many sounds of nature as the sun fell low to the horizon.

It's not truly a hike as it's a paved path and there isn't really any alteration in the altitude. I only walked down a few miles but in those miles I wasn't very impressed. I parked in an education center and just started walking along the road, not really knowing if I was on the trail or not. It wasn't far and I found where the trail head was marked. It was nice at first; there is a little bridge to cross over and then there is a set of railroad tracks and then the trail veers to the left but if you look straight ahead there are tiny little...boxes? Made out of pvc pipes and plastic...I would have loved to go poke around but I was a little chicken since I'm not familiar with this area and I was alone lol. I think there was a sign back between the five structures but it wasn't facing the correct way. I continued on my journey and came to an underpass that was tagged with all kinds of nonsense. I crossed over two pretty large streets (although there weren't many cars passing when I was there). There is a spot where it says bikers and inline skaters should stop and pay $5 but I didn't see anybody actually stop to make the payment. The trail runs behind some apartments and some houses. I guess I might be a little disappointed because I was hoping I was further out from the city (I probably should have looked at a map lol) and that it would be more of a rural trail. I did get passed by probably 10 bikers and 5 other walkers/runners.

Nice flat, easy ride, perfect for people who prefer trails that do not involve riding on roadways.

Great place to ride. Road biking east of Dousman. Hybrid west of Dousman. I wish more was paved but it's still wonderful to have at all.

Smooth trail connecting Wauwatosa, WI to Dousman, WI. Rails to Trails route. Super easy and user friendly.
