30 The Ozaukee Interurban Trail is a 30-mile paved trail that spans the length of Ozaukee County and is designed for biking, in-line skating, walking and running. The trail route connects historic downtowns with natural landscapes. The route is based on the Interurban railway that linked Milwau - kee and surrounding communities from 1905 to 1951. On the south end, the trail ends at the start of the Brown Deer Recreational Trail where riders can tap into the Oak Leaf Trail. The trail features 118 miles of multiple loops through all the major parkways and parks in the system. Loops are composed of off-road paved trails, park drives, and municipal streets where necessary to Enjoy The Outdoors on the Ozaukee Interurban Trail, Oak Leaf Trail and Hank Aaron Trail g SUMMER PREVIEW Cedarburg Fredonia Belgium Port Washington Saukville Grafton Mequon Thiensville OZAUKEE INTERURBAN TRAIL UWM Lake Park Lakefront Parks Estabrook Park Lincoln Park Kletzsch Park Brown Deer Park Ozaukee Interurban Trail Downtown Milwaukee OAKLEAF TRAIL Milwaukee Art Museum ensure continuity.
