Milwaukee Urban Water Trail (WI)
Length: 14 miles
Waterways: Milwaukee, Menomonee, and Kinnickinnic Rivers
The goal of the Milwaukee Urban Water Trail is to help the citizens of Milwaukee gain safe and legal access to the Milwaukee, Menomonee, and Kinnickinnic Rivers. The Milwaukee Urban Water Trail is a trail and map for canoes, kayaks, and other small non-motorized boats on the "urban" portions of our three rivers.
Water trail guides are comprised of access points, portages, and resting sites, and also includes information on historic, cultural, ecological, or scenic points of interest along the way. The ultimate goal of a water trail is to connect more people to the rivers in their backyards, and to inspire stewardship and protection of our waters.
Signage clearly marking put-in and take-out locations, portages, and safety concerns are an integral part of this project.
