I hiked this trail with my sister, and we agree that the trail is not well marked. We started from the trailhead at the parking lot along the shore of the bay and then moved away from the shore into the woods. We looped around and came upon a road that looked like access road for county maintenance. We didn’t see a trail so we turned back and back-tracked to the car. As we were driving out, we realized that we should’ve followed the access road back to the parking lot. We added some time and distance to the hike but we both enjoyed it! We would do this again.

Great trail. Pretty easy going, not marked all that well , which is great because few ppl come up this far to hike it. An added bonus on this trail is The Place Where The Monk Sits. Very very few people know if it’s existence, even among locals. If you can find it, you’ll know it when you’re there. Just be cautious hiking the bluffs. Ring a bottle of wine, a light meal, and enjoy the view as the sun sets or rises in this hidden gem. Bring a headlamp as the trails aren’t marked well.

Nice trail but not very well marked with minimal views of the lake.

Beautiful views, but take care. Had an encounter with a bear during an early November hike.

It is a great trail but if you are going to do the loop make sure to bring a compass because the trails are no very well marked and it is easy to get lost. Luckily there are roads everywhere and since it's a peninsula you're never really too lost

Easy hike to the shores of Green Bay. As previous poster reported cool rock formations created by visitors. Unfortunately I was there on a day 2 county workers were knocking them down citing danger to children if rocks were to fall. Well worth the walk for great views of Green Bay.

Short fun hike with kids age 4 and 7. The bottom of the trail is a rocky shore of Green Bay with curiously positioned rock formations made by prior visitors and a wooden teepee shelter sort of thing. Great view and just the right level of difficulty for a young family walk.
