I don't think I was on the trail mentioned here as it's November and the trail was closed (there was a large dangerous branch over the boardwalk) but we wondered onto some other trails and really enjoyed our walk. I had 3 kids with me and the hike was easy.

Beautiful trails at this location. While the description says a little over 8 miles, it's actually over 10. There were a ton of animal tracks and plenty to see. I was lucky enough to see a deer! Loved this hike and would do it again.

Largely paved trail with steep stairs at places. Clean and no obstacles. A series of purple quartzite cliffs offer excellent views toward part of Baraboo to the north, East bluff to the east, the moraine to the southeast, and Devils lake down below. On return took the Tumbled rock trail along the lake, nice talus fields.

Good fun walk in the woods. Would definitely recommend for those looking for an easy trail on a nice day.

Awesome trail, easy. Great for family or easy Mnt. Biking. Perfect for camping. Blue mark trail has great views.

Absolutely stunning hike. I loved the views and while it did have challenging portions that were very steep, it is well worth the effort!

Easy trail through the woods that we used to get from the CCC trail to the lake trail then up to the west bluff

great trail win fantastic views of the lake and valley. Also saw a bald eagle perched near the summit of this trail. Amazing.

Was very impressed with the trails here and amazing rock formations. Devils doorway is among the best in the area.

Great trails with scenic views of the forest and various rock formations that dominate the area. Trail is nice because it has an intersect and plenty of maps to make navigating the landmarks easy.

Rewarding trail on a steep climb. Rocks can be slippery so move slowly. Balanced rock itself is lovely.

Easy stroll by Lake Mendota, through the woods, and on prairie. The trail is flat and wide, but can be muddy in places. Nice view across the lake toward the Capitol. There is a pet exercise (swimming?) area. Now why did the turkeys cross the road?
