Milwaukee County now boasts two mountain-bike trails!

    • Alpha Mountain Bike Trail
      6740 S. 92 St.
      Located at the Whitnall Park's Winter Sports Area (northeast of the golf course). If you are driving to the trail, park at the Whitnal Golf Course lot, 6751 S. 92 St, and ride your bike to the trailhead, northeast of the lot.

      The Alpha Trail, a 3-mile single-track narrow trail, begins at the Winter Sports Area of Whitnall Park and heads eastward to the Crystal Ridge area of the Root River Parkway. The trail has only a few steep or rocky segments to accommodate beginners.

      Operated in cooperation with Metro Mountain Bikers (MMB).
      Designed with International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) and Trail Care Specialist Service.


    • Hoyt Mountain Bike Trail
      Trailhead: 1800 Swan Blvd., near the entrance parking lot

      This trail is a 2.5 mile loop.

      The Hoyt Trail is designed for novice riders; however, there are points to the trail that provide a definite challenge. Winding along the Menomonee River, this scenic trail is primarily single track, marked one way for mountain bikers and the other way for pedestrians.

      Funded in part by an REI grant administered by the Park People.
      The Metro Mountain Bikers, the Bicycle Federation of Wisconsin, and the Parks Dept. were all instrumental in developing the trail.


When using the trails, please follow the basic rules of etiquette and safety.
