40 OZAUKEE COUNTY EXPLORE The Ozaukee Interurban Trail is a 30-mile paved trail that spans the length of Ozau - kee 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 Milwaukee and sur - rounding 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 nec - essary to ensure continuity. A great starting point is at the Milwaukee Art Museum, then traveling either north or south on the trail from there. The Hank Aaron State Trail provides a key link through the heart of Milwaukee County, including the Meno- monee Valley and Third Ward. Starting at Lakeshore State Park along Lake Michigan, it eventually will connect to the Milwaukee/ Waukesha county line.
