This is a custom loop that circles Milwaukee on paved paths, and comes out close to a 50k.
I started on Bradley Road on the "Drexel Connector," continued down the Menomonee Line to its end near Miller Park where I picked up the Hank Aaron State Trail. This continues through Milwaukeee and ends at the Summerfest Grounds. I ran up the lake until picking up the Milwaukee River Line to the Zip Line up to Brown Deer Park where I complete the loop on Bradley Road.
Relatively easy route with plenty to see from the woods on the Menomonee line down to the Miller Coors Brewery, to Miller Park, through the breweries on Canal street then to the lake. The hardest part, I think, was that this whole route is on pavement.
This run happened during Coronavirus quarantine so the trails were pretty much all mine, and the streets were empty!
For reference to the Milwaukee trail system, here is the link:
