Spectacular scenery, a full range of recreational activities, and a full-time naturalist make this a very popular park. The nearly-10,000-acre state park is 2 miles south of Baraboo and about 40 miles northwest of Madison.

If you haven't hiked this yet, you will not be disappointed. This is one of those trails that should be on your bucket list. Devil's Lake is the epitome of how beautiful wisconsin can be. This is a two hour drive for me to get to, but I give it a visit every year.

Do this a few times every year!

Fabulous view, gorgeous lake to see from up high

With today's cold snap the glen is full of ice falls! The creek and waterfall itself is still unfrozen and flowing (waterproof boots!), but numerous icicles and ice sheets grew from the rock walls. Really neat.

Perfect!

It was fun but it was basically all up hill and then after walking 2 miles. We had to turn around at the end and walk back down hill. But I did see a cardinal and four white tailed deer so that was pretty cool.

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.

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.
