The Lake Michigan Pathway extends approximately 9.8 miles along the lake shore. On the north side of Racine, it connects to Racine County's Milwaukee-Racine-Kenosha Trail (MRK) at 3-Mile Road and South Street. On the south side of Racine, it connects to Racine county's North Shore Trail at Chicory Road.
With a connection to the Root River Pathway at the mail Street Bridge, users have access to many Racine attractions, by bike or on foot including the DeKoven Center, Pershing Park, downtown Racine, North Beach and the Racine Zoo.
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 trails and MRK and North Shore
