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.
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.
