This is one of our favorite trail runs! The Root River Pathway starts in the natural beauty of Colonial Park. As it follows the path of the Root River, the trail includes educational signposts that tell the story of the role of the river in the development of Racine. The pathway offers an opportunity to see Racine as it cannot be seen from a moving vehicle, to identify plants and trees native to the region and to appreciate the ecology of the Root River system. It also connects to the Lake Michigan Pathway which offers one of the most beautiful trails in Southeast Wisconsin.
