A new website resource offers comprehensive information about Kenosha County Parks’ network of trails, County Executive Samantha Kerkman announced today — on National Trails Day.
The landing page at kenoshacounty.org/trails includes links to information about the county’s various multiuse and hiking trails, paved pathways, bicycle routes, purpose-built mountain bike trails, and snowmobile routes.
One of the new pages breaks down the county’s trails by difficulty level, as it relates to terrain, elevation change, and trail surfaces.
“Just in time for National Trails Day, our Parks staff has packaged all of this information in one place, to make it easier for people to find a route that works for them,” Kerkman said. “I encourage people to check out this helpful resource.”
The posting of the difficulty level ratings came at the suggestion of Supervisor Brian Bashaw, a member of the County Board’s Public Works and Facilities Committee, with an eye toward bringing even more people out to the county’s parks and trails.
“Kenosha County Parks are exceptional, and I’m very excited that we are able to invite everyone to come out and enjoy our parks together,” Bashaw said. “This is about everyone getting outdoors and enjoying everything that Kenosha County has to offer.”
Supervisor Mark Nordigian, chairman of the committee, said he is pleased the county is providing this enhanced trail information to county residents and visitors.
“The Kenosha County Parks trail system offers something for everyone,” Nordigian said, “and this new web content makes it easier for people to find what they’re looking for.”
