BIKING & TRAILS
Navigating local trails on bike or on foot has become a very popular activity in recent years. Whether you are a traveler looking for a way to explore a new place or familiar with the area and want to enjoy a healthy activity, the Oconomowoc area has a great selection of trails and routes to choose from.
From Oconomowoc you can jump on the Lake Country Recreation Trail at a trail head in Roosevelt Park. It’s a great starting point with restrooms and parking. You can head across the city or even explore farther east to Delafield and Pewaukee. The Lake Country Recreation Trail runs along former railway line and shares a path with We Energies powerlines above. But the view along your ride is pretty countryside. The trail is a great route for any level.
If you feel even more adventurous, connect via the Cushing Park Trail in Delafield to the Glacial Drumlin Trail which runs 52 miles from Waukesha west to Cottage Grove.
The routes and adventures you can have on these wonderful trails are endless. Please make sure you check each trails website for any updates or planned work. And note that you do need a state trail pass to use the Glacial Drumlin Trail.
Want to keep it simple? Then just start by exploring Oconomowoc. The city has identified several bike routes and the fun part is they all lead to downtown Oconomowoc; the perfect place to take a break, enjoy the lake and grab a refreshment.
Prefer to hike or just have a casual walkabout? Check out downtown Oconomowoc via the Fowler Lake walking loop. Start at Fowler Lake Park or simply on the Fowler Lake Boardwalk downtown.
Ready for a hike? We suggest starting at Lapham Peak. A beautiful state park with many routes to enjoy from easy to challenging.
