At Wyalusing State Park, you can camp 500 feet above the confluence of the Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers. One of Wisconsin's oldest parks, Wyalusing features Indian burial mounds, canoe trail, bird watching. It's a place to go for fishing, boating, bicycling, picnicking, and enjoying nature. There are an interpretive center and four historical markers within the park.

Great hike! A good workout and a nice reward at the painted sand cave.

This trail can only be accessed by starting on the Sentinel Ridge Trail or the Old Wagon Road Trail. This trail is seldom used and offers a reprieve from the more crowded areas of the park. The lower elevation portion along the Wisconsin River can get buggy during the spring and summer months. Unless you want a good uphill workout, I recommend hiking the trail from west-to-east, beginning by going down the switchbacks off of the Sentinel Ridge Trail. The incline coming up on the eastern end of the trail (where it connects to the Old Wagon Road Trail) is much more gradual.

Pretty loop with two very small trickling waterfalls and shallow sandstone caves. I preferred the sugar maple trail at wylusing

Hard uphill start but the rest is sloped down. Lovely loop through hilly woods with a nice trickling waterfall and shallow sandstone cave. Very beautiful.

Starts at Look out point and heads south to River landing following the bluff, great views over the river valley in many areas. Steep in places. Midway you see Indian mounds, nice highlight of the trail. Also interesting they have a monument to the last passenger pigeon in Wisconsin at this site.

Nice hike to a couple bluff caves, one with a wet weather waterfall. Trail layed out well and would be easy for youth to hike.

The mosquitoes were the worst I ever encountered. I couldn't stop for a picture without being swarmed. Regardless the hikes were visually interesting and alot of history with the indian mounds. Several wet weather waterfalls and bluff caves.
