High Cliff is the only state-owned recreational area on Lake Winnebago, Wisconsin's largest lake.

Super easy trail, but I love it for early morning walks with my dogs. Hardly anyone uses this trail, esp at 6am.

We biked it. The biking trails seemed somewhat limited and it was a bit difficult to decipher between what trails allowed bikes and what trails didn't. Overall though one of my favorite state parks. Definitely worth checking out!

Pretty trail with nice incline. Only downfall is how heavily trafficked it is. I didn't spend more than two minutes alone before encountering another hiker. For me, wasn't ideal, but may not be an issue for others.

This was a very pretty series of trails. I started out at the Observatory per recommendation from the people at the park entrance.
The Red Bird Trail is really nice sitting up in the cliffside. The trail itself can be rather boring since it is very level and does not wind much. There are several non-designated trails though that are quick on-off if desired to get a more challenging trail that is right at the edge of the cliffside with gorgeous views of Lake Winnebago.
I added on the Lime Kiln Trail today for a little extra and this was perfect going straight up to the lake. There was a very pretty stream that ran from the top where I had seen it on the Red Bird Trail down to the water. This was really pretty to see this continuity. The weather was quite unpredictable and the trail was very soggy. I was excited because I finally got to test how waterproof my new boots are. Many people looked quite annoyed with the sheer amount of mud on the lower part of the trail.
Overall this was a well-organized series of trails. The only complaint that I had was that there was no "You are here" dot whenever I came across a map aside from when I was starting the Overlook trail. There were quite a number of people out there hiking, and it was a mostly clean park. Great place for a decent day hike.
