Absolutely beautiful hike. Make sure you are prepared for the inclines/declines if you are planning on doing the full trail. It does get crowded by the lake views, and the rocks, especially the purple ones, are incredibly slippery, so prepare for that. Otherwise, absolutely beautiful trail with beautiful views with various landscapes.

Absolutely beautiful trail. It can get very busy in terms of other people in the area around the lake. There are two parking lots near it and many of them are just looping it. Be careful of the purple tinted rocks are there are pretty slick. The trail leading towards the lake is intimate and has great views that rival the lake section but without the traffic. Once you head away from the lake it’s much more solitary.

Wife and I were in Madison for crossfit games. Wonderful hour drive to get here through beautiful country. We parked on south side of the lake and the road in was breathtaking pretty!

We hiked a clockwise loop up the west bluffs and then back on the east forrest trail. 2 totally different experiences. West was a climb in slippery rocks up and down and lovely lake vistas. Forest on east side as a wide smooth path and we really made time. Big climb down from east side to south beach. Slow and treacherous.

I did this trail yesterday but cut in on the Upland Trail loop and stayed inside of hwy 113 it was about 10+ miles. I'm glad I started at park headquarters and did the bluffs first. it took me 4 hours or so. just an fyi parts of it are on park roads

Awesome hike, did it this past weekend in about 25 hours. The to climbs are not to be underrated, but are doable. There are lots of scenic bluffs which are awesome to take a look at. We had a great time hiking this and would definitely recommend it.

I started from the Rozno's Meadow parking lot off Highway 113 and headed west. The meadow was beautiful. This hike is pretty tough. I had a day pack with my lunch and 3 liters of water and was able to refill my water a couple of times in the park's picnic areas. The trail ends at a trailhead off Highway DL and I had to walk back on the road to my car at Rozno's Meadow, which added another 2 miles to my overall distance. The trail was very well marked (yellow blazes). I highly recommend this, but definitely not for beginners.
