Waukesha County

Waukesha County Parks trail system offers over 35 miles of paved recreational trails with unique and scenic experiences for all! Minooka Park is home to a system of dedicated mountain bike trails that are a regional destination for enthusiasts across the midwest.

  • Bugline Trail

    The Bugline Trail is a 16-mile trail that owes its existence to the quarries near Lannon. Trains once hauled famed Lannon Stone from the deep limestone pits which still operate today. A look down into the quarries from the trail is an impressive sight. Further along, perhaps you'll be able to spot homes built from the Lannon Stone. Dense woods close to the trail often hide the fact that much of your ride is through suburbs. The Menomonee Park trailhead now features new bike racks, an informational kiosk, and a bicycle tune-up station. This trail will take you from Appleton Ave (S.T.H 175) in Menomonee Falls to the west end of North Lake, in the Town of Merton.

    The Lake Country Trail is a 15-mile trail, located on the former Milwaukee-Watertown Interurban Railway.

The Lake Country Trail runs through the middle of the County (North of Interstate-94) from east to west through very rolling terrain, providing scenic views of the mid-kettle moraine area, including the Landsberg Center trailhead, Pewaukee Lake, Naga-Waukee Park and War Memorial Golf Course, Lake Nagawicka, historic City of Delafield, Upper and Lower Nemahbin Lakes and Roosevelt Park in the City of Oconomowoc.
