The Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest is 30 miles long, extending from the village of Dousman, Wisconsin, almost to the city of Whitewater. Forest Headquarters is 3 miles west of the village of Eagle on State Highway 59

One of my new favorite hikes with in 45 min of Milwaukee. Challenging for Wisconsin hiking, but not too difficult. There are camping spots along the trail and a look out loop around half way of the green loop. I thought everything was well marked. I will be back for some snowshoeing.

Absolutely amazing in every aspect!!

Interesting very easy walk. Very open and sunny and somewhat poorly marked trails. But lovely nonetheless

Great moderate difficulty trail, will do it again!

this is an awesome trail system just a heads up for people taking their kids and a stroller it's very rocky on the hills and tree roots are ample so a jogging stroller would definitely work better then a standard stroller you can make those work but be ready for a work out. This is an absolutely beautiful trail system you will not regret trying it out one bit

This was a good hike. good variety of scenery. well marked and well maintained.

Nice shaded trail. The sections by the road can be a bit noisy, but otherwise a great outing. Be sure to bring bug spray!

The 9-mile blue loop of the Nordic Trail is my favorite hike in the area. Well, not so much in my area, because I live an hour south of the trail, but it is absolutely worth the drive. Nice varied scenery, a few hilly areas to provide some variety (and a little more effort), well-marked, well-maintained paths, and best of all, no biking allowed!

Nice trail, we'll marked with signs. Wide trail, as wide as 2 cars width most of the trail. Orange Trail yielded 2 spots with great Valley views. Moderate ups and downs.

beautiful. and on a hot day, very rewarding when you get to the springs.

Great woodsy trail with lots of hills!

This section is part of The North Face Endurance Challenge Wisconsin ultra marathon races - great mix of piney woods, open fields, single and double track. A variety of trail surfaces: pine needle covered trails, sand, rocks, and mown grass. Street crossings mean you're never too far away from civilization, but this still remains one of the best natural getaways in the Chicagoland area.
