Second section of KK River Trail Opens

The second section of the Kinnickinnic Trail is now open. This section runs from Lincoln Avenue, just east of First Street, south then swings west to Sixth Street at Rosedale St. A new bridge takes the trail across Chase Street. There is no connection at Chase.

The new trail would appear to form an on-trail section of Milwaukee County’s Oak Leaf Trail East-West Connector, but no Oak Leaf Trail signs have been placed yet. The Connector runs east from the Oak Leaf Trail along Lake Michigan to 84th Street where it turns north. The new trail would seem to imply a re-routing of the Connector in Bayview from Montana Street to Lincoln.

The first section of the KK River Trail runs between Washington Street and Maple Street to the east of First Street. To connect to the second section, one would continue on Maple St to First Street and then go south on First to Lincoln.
