The Kettle Moraine Northern Unit is comprised of about 30,000 acres stretching 30 miles across Sheboygan, Fond du Lac, and Washington Counties. The forest is managed for multiple use, including recreation management, sustainable forest products, water quality and soil protection, terrestrial and aquatic wildlife, native biological diversity, and aesthetics.

this trail is usually completely under water and impassable without tall waterproof boots, Lots of tree limbs down as well so bike can be tricky.

Definitely nowhere near a hard hike. I wouldn't quite call it moderate either. (Mostly flat with some small steeps hills) Milo the Labrador also agrees.... Some mosquitos, but nothing out of the ordinary when hiking through the woods.

Dense woods with narrow trails that are quite rocky in some places. The area that I hiked was a moderate challenge with some steep climbs. I hiked for a couple of hours and only saw two people. Very peaceful. I recommend hiking shoes due to the rocky terrain.

Good trail. Lots of bugs and some tall grass on the trail in July. Lots of parking. Only saw a few other hikers and one jogger.

The trails were nice very pretty area, if you go in the summer bring off the horseflies and other bugs were horrible made us not even want to walk it! But over all very pretty

I don't know if I would necessarily categorize this as difficult. It seemed more like a moderate hike to me. Other than that, it was a beautiful hike!

Beautiful lookouts and a pretty good workout for the legs with all the elevation changes on the yellow loop! One of my all time favorite trails in Kettle Moraine!

Loop #2 was a nice and easy trail.

I went two weekends back and the trails weren't maintained. I don't mind ankle-length or even calf-length grass/shrubs, but this was knee-length and then some.

Roughly 8 miles through the lower part of the "North" Kettle Moraine forrest. A good hike with plenty of up and downs, fortunately, the last .5 mile is downhill to the parking area and trail head.

Nice hike along the yellow (outer loop).
A very well groomed and maintained trail. Too well for my tastes. Not much of a challenge.

Great changes of scenery throughout the trails. Mosquitos and Flys were starting to get bad when I went on July 5th 2014.

Would recommend this trail for a family hike.

I agree with Amy, you get a variety of woodlands and loops can expand your hiking, but bugs; deer flies are thick in mid summer.

This is a pretty good hiking trail for this area. The Yellow trail is a 5.2 mile loop but can be extended by a few extra miles by combining some of the other loops and trails at this location. The trial surface varies from packed dirt , moss , mowed grass and pine needles. A few areas in the trail have some small rocks sticking up in places. As with most of Wisconsin, depending on the time of year could be mosquito hell. Spring, early summer and fall are nice and mild. Notes that there are a few low points in the trail that can become a bit boggy or wet in the spring. You can park at either the ice age center lot or the sothern lot.
