Waukesha is the eastern terminus of the Glacial Drumlin Trail.

This large western Milwaukee suburb was first settled by Europeans in the mid-1800’s. These New England Yankees cleared the dense virgin forests and farmed the wild prairie, and the city now boasts a population of over 70,000.

A lively downtown district on the banks of the Fox River, just a mile from the trailhead, offers a vibrant mix of cafes, bars, restaurants, specialty shopping, and more.

A farmers market is held every Saturday from May through October, and the Friday Night Live summer music series appears at various downtown Waukesha venues through September.

Enjoy Waukesha!
