The Southern Unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest is 30 miles long, extending from the village of Dousman, Wisconsin, almost to the city of Whitewater. Forest Headquarters is 3 miles west of the village of Eagle on State Highway 59

Great spot for photography.

Easy trail. Beautiful with the snow.

Green Loops is nice and well maintained. Arrived at around 9am on a Saturday and didn't encounter anyone on the trail until we arrived at the beginning of the observation loop. I'd say it is a nice relaxing loop with a couple of easy hills to keep the blood pumping. although the green loop is lightly traffic you never got the feeling you were out on your own since portions of it are lined with camp grounds.

Clearly marked. Try to do some of the blue trail for lots of trail lined with pine trees.

Purple loop. Then red loop. Clear markings. Wide trails.

Followed green. Nice easy trail. Some areas with lots of small rocks. Ankle breakers if not careful. Would do again.

nice wide trails. I use these trails for great trail running! also very nice for hiking. It's very quite don't see many people at all on weekdays and goes miles deep into the Kettle Moraine forest. Lots of ups and downs. pretty well maintained. There is a pretty big parking lot. The amenities are nice with bathrooms and water.

Hiked the green trail. Some rain erosion but otherwise the trail is in good shape.

Great hiking, moderate hills, well marked trails.

we did the green trail heading CCW until we got to the outlook split and visited the outlook point. the point is not much to tell but the two dead trees at the point make it perfect platform for a hammock to take a nice break. here we made a plan to deviate from the standard trail, we headed back until we caught the junction with the Ice Age Trail and hopped on it to return to the parking lot. best part of our hike hands down; it is a beautiful section and it was a great finish. this part makes the 5 star rating for me

We really like the trail. Unfortunately the DNR has not maintained the trail this summer! The trail has not been mowed all summer making the trial and benches virtually unusable. All they have to do is mow the trails and it would be 5 stars!

Just so nice and well maintained!

Beautiful place to be in nature

this campground is THE best for getting away from noise and bustle and is an unexpected little slice of up north. been coming here since 1992 and love it. very well planned out with quiet loop too.

No dogs allowed on trail

The 9 mile blue loop is excellent - lots of undulating hills with some challenging climbs in the black rated section of 1-2 miles. Great for trail running.

I hiked the blue trail on 4/25/17.
Nice rolling trail through pine forest.
I gave it a three because of the ignorant people with dogs. Even before I hit the trail there were two couples with dogs in the parking lot and only one was on a lead. Evidence of dogs was left on the trail by lazy owner and I know the difference between wild animal crap and domestic.
Saw dogs off the lead on the trail and upon my return to the parking lot.
Blue is five miles. Trail head has clean restroom pit toilets .

We'll marked.
Trail head with plenty of parking, clean to let's. water and picnic tables.

I love this trail, lots of hills.
