The Root River Pathway extends 4 miles, east-to-west beginning at the Main Street Bridge and ending 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. Beginning where the city began, 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 RAcine and Sturtevant rails and MRK and North Shore trails.
