Located within the Villages of Menomonee Falls and Lannon, Menomonee Park is filled with a historical background from the stone quarrying period of 1880-1900. Historical remnants include an old stone crusher and the railroad spur from the quarry to the Bugline. The Park totals 464 acres of rolling field, high quality maple woods, cattail marsh, wetlands, and a 16 acre quarry lake. During your travels through the miles of trails, you may spot a warbler, thrushes or other songbirds. The rolling hills provide challenges to hikers, cross-country skiers and those on snowshoes. Enjoy a bike ride along the historical Bugline Recreational Trail that was once the railroad that served Stone City. The 12 mile crushed limestone trail is a treasure for hikers, bikers and runners. A separated portion of the trail is set aside for equestrian use.
