pretty muddy but doable. love the fall foliage.

One of my favorites. Bring waterproof shoes or extra socks. My four year old did great on this trail, there’s lots to climb. Fairly busy but we went on a Saturday afternoon.

It’s fee based area trails.

Nice day for a trail run. A nice mix of grassy and rocky trails, along with moderate elevation changes. My first time on this trail. The only downside is a trail fee of $8 for the day, but not a deal breaker. So, bring a bit of cash or check book. Enjoy!

This trail is now called the Chris Kegel Alpha Bike Trail. Nice hike.

Definitely nice scenery and plenty of options in terms of trails to switch around on. I wouldn't consider the trails to be hard though, maybe intermediate. overall it's a nice place.

This Park is awesome. There is more Hiking than is displayed in the description. We hiked 5 miles comprised of Hiking and biking paths. The scenery is beautiful with, what appears to be, invasive plant management. Some trails are flat, some rolling and some more steep.

The Park offers a ton of amenities - hiking, biking, volleyball, fishing and even a place to get beer and brats.

They’re restoring the creek, which was nice to see.

Love Nashotah Park - great for running trails and well-maintained. However, bugs can be atrocious in the summer.

Best trails close to metro area to hike with your dogs. Not as busy as Lapham Peak.

easy path with some excitement stomping through the creek.

Good trail with several loop options. Good for all levels of hikers including kids.

It was very fun and kept me on my toes! A lot of elevation changes and tight quick turns! Great workout!!

my favorite trail. I live in the area and always love going to this trail. its busy but worth it. wish people would stay off the waterfall (as there is a sign that says u can't go on it) so it can be there years from now

Excellent trail with nice views of Southeastern Wisconsin. Trail is well marked and great for all skill levels. Parking is $8 per day at the State Park.

Good hike. Lots of trails branching off the main ones. Worn paths with quite a few overgrown areas. As long as you stay on the path that looks the most worn and widest, you'll be able to complete it accurately. Took us just over an hour to do. We tracked this as just under 4 miles.

Kind of a boring trail. Trail wasn’t well groomed and we had to walk though almost knee high grass. Got a tick. Bring bug spray. Lots of bugs. Parnell tower loop is much better

Beautiful trails with lots to see. Fantastic picnic area. But it should be noted that there’s a five dollar entry fee.

Nice hike

There's Scuppernong Trail System and Scuppernong Springs Nature Trail (across from Ottawa Lake Camping area). This is a review of the former.
Synopsis: Consists of 3 trails, Red(2.3m), Orange(4.1m), and Green(4.9m). The Orange and Green trails break off at multiple points to form longer trails. There's an optional short Scenic Overlook Trail loop accessible by all 3 at a point when they temporarily reconnect. All start and finish in the same area. The Scuppernong Section of the Ice Age Trail(marked Yellow) intersects the Orange and Green. It's well marked and has posted maps along the way. The parking lot area has respectable pit restrooms.
Terrain: The trails are rock(some loose)/dirt with sections of sand. It's mostly inclines with little straight areas. The path is wide and allows for two individuals to walk together.
Scenery: The trails travel amongst the kettles which are heavily forested. The overlook loop provides a nice view. The forested scenery becomes somewhat monotonous.
Pro's: The trails are wide, easy to navigate, and are well marked. The inclines provide a decent hike and can be a tad challenging in some areas.
Con's: The scenery becomes monotonous and can be buggy especially later in the evening. At points, the trail seems like walking on a service path.
Recommendation: If you're up for a decent hike to get the blood flowing, this is the trail. The inclines get your heart rate up and maintaining a solid pace will get you sweating. A family hike might become dull. If you have kids under 8-10, I'd recommend the Red Trail and the Overlook Loop. Trail running might be the strong recommendation.

this trail has a wide range of features it includes berms, roots, some opportunitys at small jumps, wood features and technical rock sections the only thing missing is a decent drop.

A great hike you can enjoy getting lost on. It’s easy to find your way back and it’s got some good scenery. Especially for a flat Wisconsin area, it’s a fun trek.

Arrived early and had the place to ourselves. Trail starts out easy and then you encounter rocks to get to the waterfall. Still easy going climbing around the rocks and worth it to get to the waterfall. Great place to photograph..

Beautiful area. And lovely trail. We did combo of red and green trails for total of 4mi. Lots of hills to keep reminding your legs that this isn’t just a stroll. Some runners but not a problem for hikers. Very family friendly trails with beautiful trail head facilities.

Short but interesting

The marked trail is actually a mountain bike trail. Nice enough, very circuitous, east to miss a turn as I did. Entertaining ski “slope”. Toboggan Run too.

Interesting set of trails, conflicting blazes, they tried to go modern, but the original blazes worked the best. The map on AllTrails starts and ends on a highway entrance ramp, not helpful at all. The trails are more like forest roads, very wide and close mowed. Enjoyed the walk anyway.

Definitely going to give a work out of some technical skills. The ride today at 5:30am was quiet and fast. It took some doing to access the trails due to the actual park gates being closed til 7am. There were numerous tree felled that block most of the trail crosses along Pike River. But with some effort, work your way up the ravine and it’s pretty good!

Good mountain biking trail. There were a few trees down blocking parts of the trail but other than that it was good

Wear water shoes and walk in the water back to the falls. Nice wide and paved trailhead. Short hike, but very fun and pretty.
