Little Menomonee River Parkway in Milwaukee

Activities: Birding, Cycling, Hiking, Snowshoeing, Wildlife Viewing

The Forked Aster Trail in winter.


With over 868 acres, the approximately 6-mile long stretch of greenway following the Little Menomonee River is the second largest property in the Milwaukee County Parks System (after the Root River Parkway). The parkway is continuous from Hampton Avenue to Bradley Road and the Oak Leaf Trail runs that length as well. North of Bradley Road are two discontinuous parcels of the Parkway with limited access. The Oak Leaf Trail connects to the Menomonee, making it one of the longest continuously green stretches of the Trail.


A segment of the Forked Aster Trail System can be found in the section between Appleton Avenue and W. Mill Road. The trail head is behind the archery range.


There is a playground at the Green Tree Road entrance to the Parkway. There are no other amenities.
