Route map for the Bayview/North Ave night hike.
We’ll be starting on the corner of Howell and Oklahoma making our way onto KK, once we cross the river into Walker’s Point we’ll head under the Allen Bradley Clocktower and start making our way to the 6th street viaduct bridge, when we get to downtown we’ll head under 794, making our way to Wisconsin Ave from there we head to the Milwaukee Art Museum to watch the sunrise, after sunrise we head towards Brady Street and then north on Prospect Ave to our final destination of Collectivo on Prospect.
Estimated distance: 7.3 miles
Length of time: 3-4 hours (depending on breaks and photographers)
Difficulty: Average to Above Average (some hills, not a lot of rough terrain)
Brew City Safari: Bayview to East Side Night Hike 4/27/2014 3:30 am to 6:30 am
Ever see the city in depth with completely empty streets? Walk around the ghost town that is Milwaukee’s Bayview, Walker’s Point, Downtown and East Side neighborhoods at the crack of dawn. See the sun rise over the Milwaukee Art Museum. Please note this is a ONE WAY hike starting at the corner of Howell and Oklahoma by Humboldt Park and ending at Collectivo Coffee on Prospect Ave. Return trip accommodations should be made. Carpooling setups or the Milwaukee Bus system’s Green Line ($2.25 per trip) work well
Meet at the corner of S. Howell and Oklahoma Ave at 3:30 am. There is a Speedway across the street from the meetup spot that is open 24 hours. Feel free to show up a few minutes ahead of time to buy snacks/water before the trip.
Also I will be pushing everyone to get to the lakefront at the crack of dawn so we can watch the sun rise over the art museum. This will mean a reduced amount of breaks (we’ll probably have 3-4 breaks instead of my usual 5-7)
As always if you have facebook, please rsvp on the event site (it helps me estimate attendance better!)
