interurban trail

The route of the Ozaukee Interurban Trail is based on the Interurban railway that connected Ozaukee County to the City of Milwaukee and Sheboygan. Today, the Ozaukee Interurban Trail is a 30-mile paved trail that spans the entire length of Ozaukee County. It runs adjacent to The Bunkhouse property.

The majority of the Trail is off-road and perfect for family enjoyment. The Trail connects the Ozaukee communities of Mequon, Thiensville, Cedarburg, Grafton, Port Washington and Belgium by using the existing right-of-way owned by WE Energies. The Trail can be used as a commuter route for employment, businesses, industry, and commerce.

The Trail route connects historic downtowns with natural landscapes. Views along the Trail include hardwood woodlands, wetlands, farmlands, Cedar Creek, the Milwaukee River, Lake Michigan and it is designated as a “Great Wisconsin Birding Trail.”

Harrington Beach State Park has seven miles of hiking trails and one mile of Lake Michigan shoreline to explore. Walking the beach along Lake Michigan, hikers can see the remains of a 700-foot pier that was used in the early 1900s for shipping limestone quarried and processed at the park. The old pier is on the point which is the dividing point between the north and south beaches. Biking is allowed on the shuttle bus route from the Pucket's Pond area to the Answay Welcome Center.
