The Beerline Trail, which is for biking, running and walking, runs north to south along the western side of the Milwaukee River. The name “Beerline” pays homage to the trail’s location near where many of the old Milwaukee breweries were built
The trail begins at Pleasant Street, just north of downtown Milwaukee, goes north through Gordon Park, and continues through the Riverwest neighborhood following the path of an old railroad line. Currently the trail extends just north of Capitol Drive to the border between the City of Milwaukee and Glendale. If you frequent the Beerline Trail, chances are you’ll run into RRF volunteers planting trees or removing invasive species like buckthorn and garlic mustard.
