This trail was a challenge for a beginner hiker. The elevation changed were rough for someone out of shape. Be prepared to get feet wet as there are some Creek crossings as well as muddy places in the trails. It however is very nice as I went in the middle of the week and saw very few people. Plus being immersed in nature for 3+ hours and never heard a car or a plane was nice.

Definitely more difficult than the beginning trail #8 we used to connect to trail #9, but it was very enjoyable on a rare 60 degree day in January! Definitely be ready for some
Muddy sections, but nothing too extreme on the day we went.

From Ogle Lake hiked to loop, around loop and back to lake. About 7.5 miles. Less traffic than other BC trails and has a slightly more rugged feel. Has several long moderate climbs so a decent workout if that is what you are looking for in your hikes.

I typically find Brown County State Park too crowded for my taste, but trail 9 is nicely tucked away in a corner of the park that seems to only invite the more serious and respectful hikers. It was quiet, with some nice elevation changes, stream crossings, and great views of the lake.

Loop extension ( additional 2.1 miles) not included on park map trail miles. Total miles 7.5 with extension and loop. View of lake from ridge is awesome!
