While visiting my hometown of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, a family friend recommended I take some time to hike Seven Bridges Trail.
"What's that?" I asked.
I grew up in the area and have visited many of its parks and hiking areas, but I'd never heard of that one.
Upon further research, I found that Seven Bridges Trail is located in South Milwaukee's Grant Park, a 381-acre oasis with 2 miles of shoreline along Lake Michigan, according to Milwaukee County Parks.
Horticulture superintendent Frederick C. Wulff built the initial paths in the early 1900s. The park was then expanded in the 1930s as part of the Works Progress Administration relief program during the Great Depression.
My dad also grew up in Wisconsin and has ridden his bike through Grant Park dozens of times, but even he had never heard of Seven Bridges Trail. In November, we decided to explore the area together to uncover this hidden gem in our hometown.
