Gorgeous view, great photo op, and fun!

very quick, dramatic view

It's a great trail.
Posting are accurate on markers.

My absolute favorite. So beautiful, so serene.

Take it easy going up if you arent used to walking up hills. The grade is gradual. The scenery is well worth it! If you go all the way around it does get rocky and close to the edge at some areas

Moderate loop that took us 2 hours on the dot to complete, with minor rest stops at the bluff tops. The lower leg (Tumbled Rocks Trail) offered a surprisingly cool landscape.

It was worth the 3 Hour drive. The snow and ice made more special.

This is an awesome hike. Took my 3 yr. old daughter and she did pretty well on the inclines (although it was slow going). Had her in the backpack for the hike out thru the woods. Views were great. Pretty busy even during the week in the fall.

Good trail. Nice scenery and fairly easy.

Really nice--really long easy trail head for hikers with limitations. Once beyond this point, be prepared to rock hop through the actual glen.

Very pretty trail. Didn't do the full course but planning on it. Went on a gorgeous day out & I loved how there was miniature waterfalls along the trails. Pure fresh cold water. Definitely going back.

We went hiking with walking toddlers from age of 4 with Hike it baby group from Madison, they were able to Hike all the way to the waterfalls, this is a busy trail after 10am

Beautiful trail!

Steep climb up CCC Trail and very steep decline among potholes Trail - beautiful scenery and view!

Favorite light hike to take my 5 year old on. Quite a few options to add a little distance to.

Crowded on weekends, especially in summer.

super busy. but good for Wisconsin

I really adore this trail, it is beyond what I expect,we went with the hike it baby group and enjoyed the wild flowers, butterfly and the waterfalls was gorgeous, the trail is moderate for new beginners,wear sandals or water proof hiking boots , bring hiking poles as you will need them to climb the boulders, parking gets fully pretty quick try to be there before 10am during the week, I was disappointed to see the bathing in that bed condition. But everything looked amazing in that trail

Amazing view

Nice trail - not a loop. Lots of trees, well marked.

A bit of a challenge for some to reach the top ridge, but it is entirely worth. There are many memorial benches to sit and soak in the view.

Beautiful views along the whole trail-Would disagree that it is lightly trafficked, at least when I was there it was pretty people heavy.

Awesome!!

My favorite hike at Devil's Lake, which is my favorite state park

Amazing! One of the best hikes I have done. We went after a rain storm and had to do a bit of jumping on rocks to get to the end. If you look up at the end you will see a way to go from the creek to the ridge above it. You can then walk on a trail above the waterfall on your way back for a different angle.

Underrated, definitely worth checking out.
