We will walk the trails in Riverside Park and then return to the lakefront (about 2 1⁄2 miles) via the Milwaukee River Line of the Oak Leaf Trail. Once at the Lakefront people can choose to walk further along the lake shore if they wish.
Dogs are welcome but must be leashed and cleaned up after. Dress for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes (much of this hike is paved). Bring water for the hike.
Note: We do not cancel hikes ahead of time due to weather predictions. If that morning we have a deluge, or lightning, Mark will send out an email canceling… if you are not sure, stay home.
Meet at Colectivo Lakefront (the historic Milwaukee River Flushing Station). You can park along Lakeshore Drive or in the McKinley Park lot across the street from Colectivo. We will leave some cars on the lakefront and shuttle to the Urban Ecology Center at Riverside Park to walk the trails in Riverside Park.
Dick Haas and Jeff Romagna help Mark Miner organize these hikes. Email comments or questions to Mark, your hike leader, and he will answer them for you.
