They have great trails here (wooded, prairie, beach & ravine) and a tower. Located at the very end of Brown Deer Road (follow the signage). And in the winter, you can snowshoe or ski the trails. So beautiful here. (No dogs, it's a nature preserve)

The beach trail was lovely with great views of Lake Michigan. Entry to the park was reasonable for how well it was maintained. Not enough trails to hike all day, but a must visit for nature lovers. Not busy at all.

We were visiting Milwaukee looking for something to do and came here. When I was a child I grew up in the area this has really expanded over the years. I would like to see more place markers because the map isn't really user friendly....More
