This trail is a segment of Wisconsin's iconic Ice Age Trail. This route has some challenging climbs and descents, which translates to some great view. The elevation views are not as great as the Kettle Moraine Ice Age trails, but Brooklyn Wildlife Area has some beautiful rolling hills and prairie. This route has some fun boardwalk, tall prairie grass, and wooded areas.

Beautiful trail with a bit more challenge than most of the trails in Wisconsin. Decent distance as well. This is a similar hike, in difficulty and terrain, to the Devil’s Lake to Parfrey’s Glen hikes, which is one of my favorites. The only downside is that many use the trail with their dogs and ignore the signage requiring pets be on-leash.

This is one of my favorite trails. Rolling hills, great prairie views, wooded areas. Super mix for trial hiking or running.
