Summary:
Great single track for being in the city. The trail skirts the Monominee river in tosa from north of Capitol drive where the catwalks are to south of Highway 94 in West Allis. Some parts of the trail are hard to find and the best way to find them is asking other riders in the area. The best trails are south of highway 100.

Recommended Route:
Park near or around highway 100 and the Menominee Parkway. Trails are on both sides of river between Burleigh and higway 100, then they stay on the east side, cross under Burleigh, North ave bridges and Swan Blvd comes back up on parkway. From this spot you can 1. head east on hardball trail for 50-70 yards and take right onto bridge and then a left after bridge and the trail continues and takes you down town tosa. 2. Cross over Swan Blvd and take maintenance road for Hansens golf course until you hit a culvert, go over it and the trail continues for a good 3to 4 more miles.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Milwaukee, East side trails between Port road and North ave.

Summary:
This trail is a joke! Not technical at all and a large amount of the trail is so neglected that you have to bike through chest high weeds and pickers. Also, all of the catwalks are smashed to pieces. You can ride the entire loop in 20 mintues so it gets boring real fast. Avoid this trail at all costs and head to Blue Mound State Park for some real technical singletrack.

Recommended Route:
Take any route that leads to another trail

Summary:
Rough ride through woods and a few tight turns, along the Menomonee River. Single Trak

Recommended Route:
Take Highway 100 along the right side instead of Parkway, easier to turn on too
