New Berlin Recreation Trail
Description: The New Berlin Recreation Trail is a Waukesha County trail that runs straight east-west across New Berlin. It runs along a power line that is next to a railroad ROW, so it is relatively flat. The trail isn't very scenic, with power lines and a railroad adjacent, but it is a fast way to get across New Berlin and is an important connector on the Madison to Milwaukee trail system.
