Love this trail! Challenging to do entire 15+ miles and also great trail for day hikes out and back from either Luna Whitedeer trailhead or Franklin nature trail.

Most beautiful trail! Two sections of the trail underwater.

Nice for mountain biking. Mostly wide trails, but single track on Valley Loop. Lots of hills. Good workout!

No majestic bluffs, waterfalls, ect, just the most beautiful serene forest with crystal clear glacial lakes you will find in the Northwoods of Wisconsin

A beautiful late winter, early spring hike. we went from the Franklin campground trail to Hidden Lake Trail, out and back about 5 miles total. it was about 6°F and sunny. trails were sometimes snow covered, a few inches deep with ice crust, or cleared to the leaves and pine needles with a few patches if ice.

Walked a lot on ridges through pines and birch forest, and highlight was walking on a ridge between two small frozen lakes.

Bring some birdseed if you're skiing in during the winter. The chickadees and squirrels will love you for it. There's a nice little hut where you can build a fire and make a day of it. I've biked this a few times in the summer (on a 650b) and it's exceptionally bumpy and rooted. I'm looking forward to trying it out this summer on a fat bike, which might make it a bit easier.

Pretty forest, nice variation in the trail.

Found it good for mountain biking with levels from easy to very difficult. Trails were marked and fairly well maintained. I was very surprised no one was biking it.

Unexpectedly tough trail, but I managed to get through it. I hiked halfway around the loop and stayed overnight at one of the developed campsites. The one I was looking for was not marked well, but with some exploring, I found it. The sites of these lakes weren't anything spectacular, but the hike was fun.
