Beautiful views of the river. Very steep coming up the side by the boat launch so be prepared for that!

We hiked this our 9 and 12 year olds. big elevation change but a nice long stretch along the river which was beautiful. Flooded forest. Trail was marked closed on 6/14 due to high water but another couple had gone thru and said it was fine (just a little muddy by the river but easy to walk thru...no slipping). Some narrow parts with brush so check yourself closely for ticks. I found one on me after (we think deer tick). Great trail, will do again! Was not busy, only ran into a few groups.

Not a bad hike, some spots have some spectacular views and the Indian mounds were very interesting. Be prepared for a steep climb! I recommend starting at the parking lot by the river, that way you're rewarded for your efforts with nice views. Trail was very buggy, and no amount of bug spray seemed to work. Also muddy and slippery in some spots.

Great hike for endurance as there is plenty of inclines. Halfway through, the trail turns into a paved road leading to a boat launch. Beautiful views!

Nicely maintained but still had the wild feel to it. Very quiet compared to the other heavily used trails in the area.

Well maintained, wide trail. Steep at times.

Very nice secluded trail. One of the better trails if you don’t want a crowd but still very well maintained. Very cool views. Elevation changes a little bit which can be challenging at the end.

Despite the bugs which are always a problem in the spring on all trails, I really enjoyed this trail. The river view and well kept trail made this an interesting hike. The elevation is a challenge, in my view not insurmountable.

One of the better hikes in park. Mesquitos were horrible, but notwithstanding, a great scenic hike for the area.

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.

Moderately steep, well kept, pretty vistas.

Steep and rough in places. Runs along the river.

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.
