About the Oak Leaf Discovery Tour®

Passports are now available.

To protect yourself and others, we ask you maintain social distancing guidelines.  For more information, please visit Milwaukee County’s COVID-19 resource page.

Promoting park engagement, the Oak Leaf Discovery Tour (OLDT) is a summer-long event which starts with your purchase of the Oak Leaf Discovery Tour Passport at the following locations: Wheel and Sprocket (Milwaukee area locations), Johnson Cycles, South Shore Cyclery, or by contacting Park People: 414-273-7275 or [email protected]. For added value, consider purchasing the map and passport together.

This passport has information about 25 county park locations along our nearly 125 mile Oak Leaf Trail. As you ride the trail, collect keywords from your exploration. When you get a minimum of 10 keywords, bring your passport with you to the end of the season party (2020 date: September 13, Estabrook Park Biergarten) where you can win terrific prizes.

For trail enthusiasts, local author Jill Rothenbueler Maher has recently written a book, Milwaukee County’s Oak Leaf Trail: A History. Learn more about her book here.
