Milwaukeeans love the Oak Leaf Trail, a 125-mile escape to nature connecting the major Milwaukee County Parks. But many have not heard the history behind the trail. That's why author Jill Maher has written "Milwaukee County's Oak Leaf Trail: A History". Jill joins us discuss the book, what makes the Trail unique, and we love this local treasure.

Jill has a book talk at Historic Milwaukee (235 E. Michigan Street) on Friday, June 7 at 6pm. Tickets are $10 and support commitment to Milwaukee's history, architecture, and the preservation of the built environment. For more information on the Oak Leaf Trail, visit
