Devil’s Doorway is definitely one of the busiest spots along the Devil’s Lake trails but is a must-see if you’re visiting the park for the first time

If you haven't hiked this yet, you will not be disappointed. This is one of those trails that should be on your bucket list. Devil's Lake is the epitome of how beautiful wisconsin can be. This is a two hour drive for me to get to, but I give it a visit every year.

Was very impressed with the trails here and amazing rock formations. Devils doorway is among the best in the area.

For the overall lack of elevation gain in Wisconsin, this trail is perhaps the most redeeming. Its modest 450 feet gain is attained within a short distance -- resulting in excitingly steep quartzite steps. In addition, most of the trail is exposed with excellent views of the valley below, including Devils lake to the southwest, the terminal moraine plug to the south that formed the lake, and distant lake Wisconsin to the east. Main attractions along the trail include the balanced rock and the devils doorway, both delicate rock formations, and several potholes. Also look out for ancient ripple marks baked into the quartzite rocks. This is an extremely popular trail, be prepared to share it with literally bus loads of hikers during weekends. There are a lot of children and dogs, too. The quartzite steps can be slippery at places, and the trail tends to camouflage itself in talus fields. Young hikers should be closely supervised because of steep drop offs, but should otherwise have no difficulty completing the trail.
