The Oak Leaf Trail

The Oak Leaf Trail is a 100+mile biker’s, runner’s, and walker’s paradise encircling Milwaukee County. The scenery along this spectacular trail network is outstanding and ever-changing. Follow the trail along the Menomonee River through Wauwatosa, going through the natural beauty of Hoyt Park. Let the trail lead you north to Currie Park, or continue west to find where it connects to the Brookfield Greenway Trail.

The Hank Aaron State Trail

The Hank Aaron State Trail stretches from the lakefront to American Family Field and beyond. Enjoy a mix of urban settings and natural scenes on this trail, which runs west from Lake Shore State Park then along the river and on dedicated trails for more than 6 miles.

Bublr Bikes

Didn’t bring a bike along? No problem! The Bublr Bikes bike share system makes it easy to explore on a rented bicycle. You can even travel from one of Wauwatosa’s stations to a station downtown.

East Tosa Gran Prix

You won’t want to miss the East Tosa Gran Prix bike race at the end of June! This race is part of the Tour of America's Dairyland series, one of the largest competitive cycling events in the country, drawing more than 10,000 spectators. North Avenue in East Tosa is closed as cyclists ride in short-loop racing, or criterium, on this main arterial. Local North Avenue businesses in East Tosa have made it into a street festival with food and music attracting spectators from around the region.

Wauwatosa was an early adopter of bike boxes, which are painted spaces near intersections for bikes.
