Anyone know of this trail? (Milwaukee area)

So I was on google-maps routing a ride for this weekend, and I came across this path/trail looking thing. Right by Mt. Zion Cemetery off of North Ave.

But I'm not to sure what terrain this is. Last time I checked 700x23c road tires don't like riding trails.

Anyone know if this is cement or not?

It's the wrong side of town for me, but you may be on to something.

Google up Brookfield Parks and you get this: http://www.ci.brookfield.wi.us/index.aspx?nid=94

Click on Greenway Trails (it takes a while to load) and you get an interactive map.

Yes, it is a trail. Is it ridable? You tell us after you've tried.

Sweet deal man, thanks.

I'll definitely snap some shots of it and post 'em here, next week.

Definitely check it out. Google maps for our area are at least 2 years behind in some places. I know that the paved sections of Oak Leaf Trail down to the Milw. County Sports Complex do not show up, nor does the Brookfield Greenway Trail near 124th & I-94. It's definitely worth investigating.
