Climb a 45-foot observation tower atop the highest point in Waukesha County (1,233 feet above sea level). Lapham Peak Unit's glaciated topography provides excellent hiking, backpacking, and cross-country skiing on lighted trails.

Beautiful trail. I did a loop combination. Trail is not market well in the app. In the meddow, the trail changes every few season. General direction is correct but actual path is not.

Nice trail. Rather heavily used and developed park. Wide gravel ATV road most areas. Pretty extensive restoration of woodland and prairie. Good bathroom facilities. Many benches along trail.

The trail is beautiful and so well kept. Thank you to the volunteers that contributed to my lovely morning. I think this is my favorite trail in Wisconsin so far.

Part of trail key marked on the trees (blue diamond with wave) sends you off the path. Make sure to follow GPS in the All Trails app. A bit buggy so spray yourself. Saw three deer at beginning. Went counterclockwise.

It is a beautiful trail. It is a very nice easy walk and a moderate trail run due to the hills.

Did this as part of the longer kettle view I guess. As with all of the kettle moraine trails it was exceptionally well kept, marked well, wide, etc...

Great trail all seasons. I’ve hiked it and loved the forest and the trees. Last week I biked in from the glacier drumlin state trail with my 2 year old pulled in a buggy, saw 2 turkeys, 6 deer and great weather. This past winter I tried cross country skiing on the groomed trail and had a great time. Lots of skiers but all very friendly. Great atmosphere for some outdoor activities.

took my son wandering through this trail. we started on the main paved trail and then ventured onto the unpaved ski trails after climbing the lookout tower. nice 4 mile easy hike. muddy with snow in various locations. no trash along the way. it was in the mid 50s during our hike.

Well used rolling trail though some woodlands but mainly savannah.

Sunny, calm, 26 degrees at beginning of trek. Well defined trail. Intersects with a few other trails. Encountered a number of other hikers. Ice still on trail in some segments. Followed trail from Lapham Peak parking area to downtown Delafield. Migrating geese and cranes always within earshot. 47 degrees at finish. Great spring trek.

This is a nice paved trail which is great for winter walks or spring hikes when the other trails are muddy. It has some beautiful wooded areas with gorgeous pine trees! It’s also easy to make into a longer hike by doing the loop more than once. Highly recommend for a relaxing easy hike!

Scenic and challenging! Our dog loves running this trail with us.

Great hike!

Nice hike. Quietly tucked away. Can be busy on early fall days. View from tower is a great place to catch sunset.

I absolutely LOVED hiking here. It was beautiful, there are tons of different trails. I believe a lot of these trails are also used for some type of skiing too. lol I found out that meant that depending on the direction you choose to go it can make the same path more challenging than going the other way i.e. If you go the direction the skiers go down it's slightly easier than going the opposite direction. The black path also crosses over the Ice Age trail a few times.

Beautiful wooded trail that's accessible for all skill levels. Took my very pregnant sister with me, and she was fine with everything except large staircases.

Nice hike with lots of wildlife.The deer let me walk within 10 feet of them. There is a good mix of open grassed areas and wooded hills. The view from the Observation Deck and really nice. Not a hard hike but worthwhile.
