This 5k (3.1 Mile) trail also known as "Clear Pond" loops along the edge of Clear Lake in Kickapoo State Park. Clear Lake is the same body of water that Kickapoo Landing (restaurant and boat rental) is located on. As such, you can look down and sometimes see kayaks, and canoes on the lake. You can also scuba dive in their very deep lakes.

Fun and challenging trail. Definitely NOT beginner trail except trail 1. Clay trail, mostly well built, rooty, twisty with lots of fun deep dips. Do not ride if wet. Very fun and much more challenging than advertised!

I walked the 7 mile Out and Back trail when very few people were in the park. This would be a fantastic trail to run. The first mile is a wide open trail cut through the tall grass and bushes. The next five miles are primarily walked in the forest with a wide trail. The trail is easy to follow with mile markers every .25 miles. Very flat. Few tree roots on the trail. Great trail.
