Milwaukee Faves: Oak Leaf Trail

My favorite place in Milwaukee in fall is the Oak Leaf Trail. It's a long stretch of paved trail/roads/side streets that are pretty clearly marked in Milwaukee with these signs:

I love that it captures some of the best views of the Lake Michigan waterfront from south of Bayview, through South Shore Park, then past the Summerfest Grounds and straight up a beautiful tree-covered paved path through the East Side corridor. The Alterra by the lake is right off the trail and great for a quick Apple Cider or Hot Chocolate. You'll also pass the Urban Ecology Center on the East Side and the community gardens. A few years ago, there was a male Fox that use to hang out right off the trail on the Milwaukee river's edge. I haven't seen him in about a year; has anyone else?
