Route of the Badger
The Route of the Badger, launched in 2014 through Rails-to-Trail Conservancy (RTC), is an initiative to connect trails throughout Southeastern Wisconsin’s seven counties including Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Walworth, Washington and Waukesha. The Route of the Badger offers a vision centered on a 700-mile-plus regional trail system connecting people and providing opportunities for recreation, connections to nature, tourism and local businesses. This network of trails currently consists of about 340 miles of existing trails. Small investments that build upon existing infrastructure will greatly improve connectivity within the region. More information on the Route of the Badger initiative is available on the RTC website. The map on the right shows how the Ozaukee County Interurban Trail fits within the broader Route of the Badger plan.
