Welcome to the Waukesha County Parks linear trail system. Our 26 miles of unique and scenic recreational opportunities are great for hikers, bikers, runners, and horseback riders.

Through the winter months, these ungroomed trails are great for cross-country skiing and other non-motorized winter activities.


Scheduled 'Spring Thaw' Closures:
Minooka Park's Mountain Bike Trails (updated: 03/18/15 3:15 pm)

To prevent damage to soft turf, Waukesha County Parks temporarily closes some high-traffic areas. Each area is reviewed daily for re-opening at the first possibility (ie. once the frost is out of the ground and turf firms up).

For updates, check here often and follow us on Twitter. Thank you!
