A section of the Oak Leaf Trail's Zip Line between Silver Spring and Bender Road is now closed for the foreseeable future, due to a growing sink hole. Users should follow the on-street detour shown below. This sink hole is caused by a collapsing stone culvert, built over 100 years ago, beneath the trail. This sink hole is dangerous and is now barricaded for the safety of all trail users, so please stay away. Milwaukee County Parks is focusing on maintaining safety, and recently funding has been secured to pursue repairs to the culvert and the trail.
