Interesting and fun beginning, not fun walk along the road at the end.

Definitely a nice and beautiful hike when it snows. The other reviews are correct- make sure to have real hiking shoes on because the beginning is a little risky next to the edge.

Very nice and approachable trail after the rocky and rooty start. Be sure to pay attention to the trail markings to stay within the park boundaries and off private land.

The last 0.6 miles are on the road leading back to the parking area. If you have a chance keep going in the woods following the trail instead of going to the road.

Lovely relatively easy trail except for the first five minutes which were steep. First you will descend then climb near a sheer drop along the bluff. Beautiful but if heights bother you, terrifying. The rest was easy. Bring your gps because trails were unmarked.

Great trail, wet today so cedar roots and rocks on trail along bluff were slippery. NO guard rails don't see this as kid friendly especially for the real young or those who run ahead not being carefully. Path IS right along the bluff and is about 500 feet up.

Beautiful trail in the fall. Definitely requires good hiking boots as there are plenty of roots and rocks. Great view on the bluff. Splendid colors on the road. Not marked that well, but pretty easy to figure out.

HikingMuddy

The first part of the trail was my favorite. It was the most challenging part of the trail; some up hill walking and walking over some rocks and tree roots. It was also along the water, so there were some cool views and cliffs. After the main view, it was mainly forest and meadow walking. There were no more views from that point, but it was still peaceful. The trail was definitely confusing — there were a lot of forks. Some trees had orange markers which was helpful. The last part of the trail was on the road which I did not enjoy much. Overall it was a decent hike!

Only one spot with a great view of the lake. Would like the last 1/4 mile to be re routed in the woods so don't have to go on the road

Great trail! Easy to navigate and a good distance to lose yourself in nature for a little while. One thing that would have made it great is if there was a better clearing on the Eastern / Green Bay side of the trail.

Loved this trail. Make sure you have proper walking shoes, no flip flops or sandals. If the trail had been marked better it would get 5 stars. There is only one good view of the Bay at the beginning of the trail so enjoy while you can.

Not the most scenic, but a good off-road, quiet woodsy hike.

HikingGreat!

Hiked counterclockwise as per recording indicates. First 0.7 mile or so is along the bluff, beautiful water views and sheer drop offs so don’t let kids run/go ahead too much. No markings I could tell on this part. At the first clearing/small meadow, we went left at the first fork and then left at the second fork and this took us off the recorded trail but it was definitely a trail, so someone should add a recording. It connected back to the recorded trail. The orange blazes finally appeared when they weren’t needed, and none evident when it would have helped. Beautiful forest walk after leaving the bluff. Last 0.4 mile is on entrance road. Next time, I would hike 1-1.4 miles counterclockwise then turn around to avoid the road and to have the water views again.

Pretty views and breeze for a short while, then through forest and meadow. Not really marked too well. Was still a good hike! Glad we went out!

If you follow the trail head out of the parking lot and do not turn right to go down to the water you will continue on the orange blaze trail. The trail has its ups and downs and hilly terrain I barely saw another person

Only one spot has views of lake and only the forst part has elevation. Otherwise its a very enjoyable walk through the woods. The trail isn’t well marked and if you go and don’t use this app you will likely get off course.

HikingOver grownRocky

Overall easy trail with minimal incline. You’re on the bluffs above the water, not any good access to the water. When you come to the fork in the wildflowers, we went left which actually took us off of this trail temporarily but if you go to the right you will be walking on the road for a bit, but eventually the two paths come back together. None of it is very well marked but all paths bring you back. The last 1/4 is on the road that you drove in on

This was rated as easy but I would say closer to medium if your doing the full trip. There is quite an incline at the bluff but not bad afterwards. The trail is poorly marked throughout. If it wasn't for the App, we would have got lost. There is orange spray paint on trees for the trail markers, but easily missed and nothing to indicate which way to go when the trail splits. Also, very uneven trail, lots of roots sticking up trying to trip you.
