This trail loops completely around Yellowwood Lake. The trail uses several segment of other marked trails so caution to follow the right trail is needed. The path also requires you to navigate a shallow stream crossing. On the west side of the lake you will pass through a designated old growth area. Loop trail around Yellowwood Lake.

Great trail. A bit muddy today, but not too bad. Some places had trees blocking the path, but again it was manageable.

Not a bad trail. It was a bit muddy as it had rained the day before. Not a lot of elevation change or steep inclines. More of a walk than a hike. The pine tree sections were nice.

Love hiking through the woods along the lake up and down the hills. It is a really pretty hike no matter what time of the year you go. - Does get muddy if it's rained and there are some creek crossings so waterproof boots are best for hiking the trail.

Was a bit damp and muddy out, that was our own fault. A nice woody trail of ups and downs, dipping a few times into the public roads and picnic areas.

Nice trail, some nice ups and downs. The pine forest sections were really nice, but you could tell that they were dying - Sad :(
Worthwhile trail to do, nothing super exiting but not super boring.

Really enjoyed the two sections with pine trees. It felt like I was in another state. Instead of walking on noisy leaves you walk on fallen pine needles and it was so quite.

Hiked 5.8. Not marked well near roads and dam- put in some extra steps finding trailheads. Remarkable sighting of frogs near dam- hundreds!!!!!

My favorite trail experience as a novice. Went on a warm summer day and rarely crossed anyone's path. Did manage to get several Yellowjacket stings at the branch off where the Lake trail separates from Scarce 'o Fat, but otherwise a great experience.

Really fun trail!! Slightly challenging, I felt more than the Scarce-O-Fat Trail which is nearby. A couple spots were muddy and did have to cross shallow water a few times. But was able to stay above the water on the rocks.Overall I really enjoyed it and felt worn out in a good way afterwards!

Nice lake... Eazy hiking... No trash... Only issue was someone made campfire in middle of trail on north section of loop just before you get to bridge... However absent that I felt that section of trail was most intresting... very nice...

Easy but nice hikes. North side of the lake is a little marshy so watch out if the water is a little high its gunna be muddy. Also while making it around the lake the west side trail was a little overgrown. Another solid trail in the area I would suggest if you haven't made it out there yet.

Beautiful hike! The view of the lake was nice throughout the hike. There were just a few places were the trail markers were not very clear, which added some additional mileage for us, but still nice. Will definitely go back again and pack a picnic!

Good trail for the area. Much better than the trails a short distance away at Brown County State Park. Not as crowded and a little more challenging.

Nicely maintained and marked well. There are a few sections where trails branch off of the Lake Trail so look for the white wave markings on the trees along the way. Plenty to see on the way with lots of forest info signs along with some of it's history as well.
