loved the trails, and some off trail areas, too. I like that the trails are more rustic. They were a bit icy today, but still enjoyable.

Great esker trail. During the week is secluded and great for dogs. Spring and fall are very animal/bird active.

Great trail ! 2" fresh snow took the dogs and had a great hike.

Easy walk. Came across Bear scat. Variety on scenery between the birding trail, woods and bog.

Beautiful walk in October. Marked a little strange got off on a road then a trail that went no where but pretty none the less.

Great easy trail to hike with the family

Great variety in trials, some lowlands some highlands. Interesting scenery that opens up to large areas of water . Very quite. A great place to walk a dog that loves nature. BUT BEWARE OF THE TICKS

The trails are very pretty and make for a great place to go hiking. We will definitely be back!

I love the area and trails. Only problem with this is the trails are either poorly marked or not marked at all, in areas. I got so lost back in here. If I hadn't had a GPS and compass I would probably still be trying to get out of the woods. Now, the very wide groomed cross country trail section, i'm sure is fine.

Beautiful trail but not at all “hard”. It was moderate in some areas but mostly roots and rocks. The views were stunning with some beach front access perfect for skipping rocks. You walk at the base of 100 foot bluffs along the water and wind along the cliffs which pass a couple caves. Lots of kids (6yr+) and dogs. We added Minnehaha to Sentinel to make a 4.25 mile loop.

Incredible cliffs down to waters edge. Wish it was longer!

Great trail, beautiful. Lots of steps, just wish the trail was longer, so go around again. Not a good trail for anyone that can't do stairs.

I was actually able to do a bit of trail running... but there were so many landscapes, I liked the brisk walk as well. My pup loved it too! Very secluded and quiet throughout my morning but a couple school buses showed up as I was leaving (perfect timing!) so I am sure it can get som traffic. When you get to the first waypoint, take the smaller trail to the right. If you go uphill (to the left) you will see the viewpoint of Butler Lake and I thought it was nice finish to overlook this (the trail has you circle back to this point)! You could also climb the steps straight up from the parking lot to get to this vantage point. But I recommend using them to get down to your car at the end! There are some picnic tables near the lot... and some kind of access to the lake near here as well. You will also notice some crossover with the Ice Age Trail. Just follow the AllTrails map on your phone to stay on track!

FYI: Trail still closed.

Wasn't quite what I expected, but it was a nice walk.

Absolutely loved this hike, so far it is my favorite. I like that there are not large groomed paths.

Very nice maintained gravel trails. Not much in the way of distance, but quite nice scenery. Would recommend not going into the caves during warm weather months if you're not fond of large plentiful spiders. Good hike!

Took my younger brother with me on this trail. It was so beautiful. I like how you get variations of nature from walking in the woods with the tall green stress and thick stumps to walking along side the lake feeling like your around a beach. It was definitely a great time and not to challenging if you don’t mind the inclines and down hills. Would do this everyday!

Great trail, I can imagine springtime and how wet it would be. I did 7 miles, there are many options and loops from 1-8 miles and everything in between. Good hills and lowlands, lots of scenery!!!

It was a blast we stopped here from big bay and we did 1.7 miles loop within 40 min, the colors are starting to change and the trail was not busy.

Great view, nice trail with some degree of difficulty off and on.
