Scuppernog trail is one of my faves! so many different loops to choose from and multiple scenic overlook points. beautiful place!

Did the green loop. I thought it was challenging with lots of ups and downs. Dogs OK on leash. Very buggy over Memorial Day weekend.

Enjoyed this on a hot day. Trail includes lots of shade and a few benches to rest. Nice that you can pick up and complete all or just portions of the trail.

March 2018 Hike. Not much color because of the season, but a very nice hike. Lots to see with some history, lots of springs, and relatively flat easy hike.

Really enjoy night hiking this trail. It’s vet peaceful. Brown loop is perfect for taking my 7 year old daughter.

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.

Great mostly wooded trail. Many switchbacks with some rather steep areas. I would rate if difficult for a Wisconsin trail. i did the green loop. Orange loop bypasses the most difficult part of the green loop. nice overlook about halfway through the trail.

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

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

Mountain biker's gem. Just beware of the ridiculous amount of skeeters, no-see-ems and poison ivy. Don't be afraid to send it this fall!

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

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.

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 .

I love this trail, lots of hills.

Woods kind of make me feel claustrophobic because of the narrow paths and sensation of going in circles since this is a mountain biking trail is prevalent. Also I think I saw an emu in these woods so this section kind of frightens me.

One of my new favorite hikes with in 45 min of Milwaukee. Challenging for Wisconsin hiking, but not too difficult. There are camping spots along the trail and a look out loop around half way of the green loop. I thought everything was well marked. I will be back for some snowshoeing.

Interesting very easy walk. Very open and sunny and somewhat poorly marked trails. But lovely nonetheless

this is an awesome trail system just a heads up for people taking their kids and a stroller it's very rocky on the hills and tree roots are ample so a jogging stroller would definitely work better then a standard stroller you can make those work but be ready for a work out. This is an absolutely beautiful trail system you will not regret trying it out one bit

Mainly a bike trail. Narrow paths and lots of trees. No great views but clean and easy.
